WALKING ALONG THE HIGHEST BRIDGE IN SINGAPORE! (As a family of four!)

Two weeks ago, we had an impromptu afternoon trip to the Henderson Waves Bridge after lunch (thanks to papa!) and the view from the top was stunning. Fun fact: It's the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore and is 36metres above ground!

"The bridge mimics the undulating shape of a wave, curving and twisting along its entire 274-metre length. Its form is anchored by steel arches and filled in with curved ‘ribs’ – slats of Balau wood, a dense hardwood used in heavy construction and which is found only in Southeast Asia. 

Its shape allows it to have hidden recesses and shell-like niches, where pedestrians can sit and observe their surroundings. Because there’s privacy and room to rest, the bridge is a popular spot on weekends with couples, families with children and joggers.

As dusk falls, visitors still linger to admire the bridge, which is illuminated to stunning effect by LED lighting from 7pm to 2am every night." (taken from http://www.yoursingapore.com/see-do-singapore/architecture/modern/henderson-waves.html)

Here are some of the photos that we took that sunny afternoon...
