I just got back from an incredible journey to Singapore, and I can’t wait to share my experiences with you. One of the highlights of my trip was discovering the hidden gem known as Henderson Waves. This stunning pedestrian bridge, completed in 2008, is the highest in Singapore and offers a unique and inspiring way to connect with nature and the city.
A Bridge Like No Other
Henderson Waves is not your average bridge. Its wave-like structure, resembling a DNA strand, is a sight to behold. As I walked across its 899 feet (274 meters) length and 118 feet (36 meters) height, I couldn’t help but be in awe of its design and the breathtaking views it offered. The bridge connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park, and its distinctive wave-like structure comes from seven undulating curved “ribs” that alternate above and below the bridge deck, also serving as a shelter for visitors.
A Serene Escape
One of the things I loved most about Henderson Waves was its peaceful and serene atmosphere. The bridge is surrounded by lush greenery, and it offers a panorama of the Keppel Bay marina on one side and town views of Bukit Merah on the other. People flock here not only for the stunning views but also for bird-watching, hanging out with friends, or going on a date while soaking in the surrounding nature. It’s the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and reconnect with yourself and the world around you.
A Nighttime Stroll
If you’re looking for a unique experience, I highly recommend visiting Henderson Waves in the evening. The bridge is illuminated with LED lights from 7 pm to 2 am every night. Creating a magical and romantic atmosphere. You can even head down for a stroll after work and enjoy the bridge’s beauty under the night sky. It’s a truly enchanting experience that shouldn’t be missed.
To reach Henderson Waves, you can take the bus (number 145) to the stop on Henderson Road right beneath the bridge. Alternatively, you can start your journey from Mount Faber. Which is a 15 to 20-minute walk from the cable car station on Faber Peak. The bridge is open 24/7, so I’d recommend visiting on weekdays to avoid the weekend crowd.
A Journey of Inspiration
Henderson Waves is not just a bridge; it’s a work of art that inspires and connects people. Its design, blending seamlessly into the surrounding landscape, is a testament to Singapore’s commitment to green infrastructure and future sustainability. As I walked across the bridge, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of wonder and gratitude. For the beauty of the world and the incredible experiences that travel can bring. I hope that one day you’ll have the chance to visit Henderson Waves. And embark on your own journey of inspiration and self-discovery. Until then, keep dreaming and exploring the world around you.
Take care, and I’ll talk to you soon.
