The Green Corridor

The Green Corridor in Singapore is a pleasant walking route along an old rail track.

This week my friends and I explored a small section of it stretching between King Albert Park and Holland Road.

To summarize in three words: Nature, History, Life.

The route starts from King Albert Park bus and MRT stop with a railway bridge across Bukit Timah Road.

A nice surreal feeling to see this in the middle of the global city,

Less then a hundred meters from a busy road – and you are in the world of tranquility, birds, and green lush.

Finishing at an upscale and serene resident “greenleaf” district: Greenleaf Drive, Greenleaf Lane, and Greenleaf Road not far from Holland Village.

A great photo guide and description of the Green Corridor is available here.

Once again I have come to realize that Singapore, paradoxically, is small but big.
