Singapore's Green Corridor is one of the best walking trails in Singapore, steeped in heritage, nature and sunshine amidst its unimpaired paths. A 26-kilometre stretch of railway line that once used to connect the Malaysian Peninsula to Singapore, the trail has now been revamped to give visitors a taste of the natural vegetation and greenery of the country. While parts of the tracks have been removed to facilitate easy walking, some parts have been kept intact to give hikers a feel of what the track used to be like. Stretching from old Tanjong Pagar Rail Station in the south all the way to the Woodlands Checkpoint in the north, the now-unused line is an uninterrupted stretch of greenery that is used as a jogging track.
Walking through this picturesque trail, also known as the Rail Corridor, takes one down the history lane of the rail heritage of the land. With terrains ranging from gravel, grass, pavement, woodland, secondary forest, and rainforest, the Green Corridor is a wonderfully tranquil location positioned within the bustling urbanopolis of Singapore - the trail is now available on Google Maps too. Visitors can walk, jog, or bike across the Green Corridor and enjoy the stunning Instagram-worthy photo-ops with tunnels, bridges, and abandoned railway tracks. While parts of the corridor are closed for construction and redevelopment, most areas are open to the public - this is a free option to explore the lesser-known sights of the Garden city - there is no sign of urban life in most areas of the trail! A 10 km running route from the Tanjong Pagar Rail Station to the Bukit Timah Rail Station forms the course for the Green Corridor Run, an annual race in Singapore and one of the most anticipated-running events in the city-state.
