Explore the old Railway line

Hi Folks,

Here is something a little different you may want to join me in taking an afternoon walk along the old Singapore-Malaysia railway line. This will take us through parts of Singapore not usually seen by most and as it is a railway line the hills are only gentle.

We will meet at the Rail Mall on Upper Bukit Timah road at 2:00pm at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. There we can have a coffee or you can go to the Cold Storage to stock up on water before leaving at 2:30pm for the walk. From there we will walk towards town along the old Railway line (just watch out for mountain bikers). The aim is to get to Buona Vista MRT and if we are still feeling fresh then continue towards town or hop on the MRT and head home. The distance to Buona Vista is approximately 8-9kms and at a leisurely pace will take approximately 1.5 - 2 hours.

To get there you can take a taxi or bus No.s 67, 170, 171, and 961 (these buses travel along Bukit Timah road). Bus 178 (from Bukit Batok MRT. Go past the bus interchange and cross the road for the stop). Bus 75 (via Holland Village). Bus 184 (loop from Clementi MRT on the north side bus stop). The Rail Mall stop numbers are 43051 heading north from the city area or stop 43059 heading south from Bukit Panjang.

It can be quite muddy in places depending on the weather of the last few days so please choose your footwear and clothing wisely to suit the conditions. In other words; leave the Gucci or any other high value footwear at home. Choose comfortable and practical footwear and clothing as it will probably get a bit messy along the way as we attempt to dodge puddles and mud. Bring along an umbrella in case it rains (or you may prefer to just get wet), a supply of water to drink on the way and of course comfortable clothing.

See you there and we can explore a bit of Singapore history.

    A good 2 hour walk. However, some people left before the end, and people who didn't register turned up

    It would be wise to bring a hat, some water and possibly insect repellent.
