These Tanglin walks will make you forget you’re in the city [Local Guide]

Tanglin is one of our island’s most salubrious addresses, overrun with mega-sized homes showcasing equally mammoth price tags. It’s on the cusp of the Orchard Road area, and within walking distance to Singapore’s celebrated shopping belt and elegant landmarks, including ION Orchard Mall and the Royal Thai Embassy.
Despite being one of Singapore’s most central and upscale neighbourhoods, Tanglin hides three stunning walks that will make locals and tourists alike forget they’re in the heart of Singapore’s busiest district. Take a jaunt down one of these to find respite from busy city living, and marvel at the vibrantly green surroundings.

1. Walk From Phoenix Park to Tanglin Post Office

Phoenix Park Walking Route.
This walk will transport wayfarers right into a secret hideaway nestled among majestic trees and buildings. Start at Phoenix Park and ramble along the narrow concrete path down a wide road flanked by some of Singapore’s most gorgeous greenery.
The wild charm of this straight route is made even more amazing by the fact that this stroll is along Tanglin Road, and leads the wanderer to the heart of the Orchard Road belt, a mere five-minute drive away. Go past the grand estates of lofty developments such as Tanglin Park, Tanglin Hill Meadows, Tanglin Condominium, and a quaint little domicile called Michel Apartments. The riotous greenery is what likely keeps this scenic walk so cool and fresh, and it’s no wonder the road is the favourite haunt of joggers.
