    Cannot believe they didn’t include the tallest bridge in France.

  12. Brandie

    The Henderson Wave Bridge more like is 900m long and not 9000!
    The trail leading from Telok Blangah Hill Park to Mount Faber Park is 1 km (1000m) long. Still very impressive bridge with beautiful views of the city / ocean.
    Must see when in S-pore, especially by night.
