Consisting of park connectors and trails, Singaporeans can enjoy plenty for outdoor activities including hiking or cycling! Although 150km long, the best part about the Round Island Route is that it passes through many hubs (it's not all just trees! Although, the nature is one of the best parts, have you checked out Singapore's very own Jeju Island, Changi Bay Point?). Which means once you or your little ones are tired, you can head over to the nearest interchange and head home. Plus, it's mostly level walking ground, which makes for an easy walk. ?
