Because I’m a sad, single 27-year-old woman living with her parents, a big part of my very hectic social life involves long morning walks with mum. I’m very grateful to have a fit, adventurous, and nature-loving woman like her to match up to my thirst for discovering new places in Singapore.

This morning, we decided to explore the former KTM railway track, which has been opened up to the public since its closure in 2011, and is now known as The Green Corridor. The good people behind the Green Corridor campaign have crafted out useful maps of the different routes you can take along the track, which starts in Sungei Kadut Avenue and ends at Kampong Bahru. As it runs through my neighbourhood, we started at Holland Road, and ended at Kampong Bahru.

Much of the track is nestled in incredibly lush greenery.

The many flyovers and highways make for some interesting photo opportunity.

There’s something very alienating and dystopian about concrete structures.

Beautiful painterly art works along the portion of the route that runs parallel to the AYE.

The track ends unceremoniously at an open field behind the housing estates at Kampung Bahru.

So we continued on from Kampung Bahru to Tanjong Pagar, and ended the morning walk with a lovely brunch at The Plain cafe.
