The latest trend of Singaporean today is to visit this very new bridge and explore the area around it. It is a long walk and climb.
The new bridge is known as Henderson Waves. It is designed with the shape of waves.
Looked at the long climb up. I did not climb on the day when I photograph this but had already make plan with my two buddies (same age as me) to climb and explore this bridge and another bridge (known as Alexandra Arch), it will be a long walk from Henderson waves to Alexandra Arch. More details of the two bridges in here. Right now, my buddies and I are too busy to go for the climb.
The whole of Singapore has a very good drainage system, so heavy flooding in Singapore is very rare but we do get flash flood every now and then whenever there is a heavy rain. Even rain water that falls in the rain are collected as drinking water. Water is so precious in Singapore.
The Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore and it is 36 metres high and 274 metres long and 8 metres wide and the architectural design of it looked like waves.
A short video of the bridge from below.
I will tell you more about this bridge and the long walk when I visited it with my two buddies.
