RATING

ROUTE

This was originally meant to be the western portion of the Central Urban Loop, but since we already did the Kallang River, we decided to go a bit further west. Starting in Yio Chu Kang, go up the Ang Mo Kio Garden West, up that tall flight of steps, then visit the Birdsinging Club and Mayflower Market. Then, follow Thomson Road all the way to Balestier and finally Whampoa and Boon Keng.

REFRESHMENTS

We had lunch at Zhongshan Mall (McDonald's), and drinks at Thomson Plaza. There's a lot of coffeshops and stuff along Balestier, so you can have food there too. And maybe dinner at Boon Keng if you want

EXPERIENCE

The worst part was the AMKGW, which was a pain to climb. The best part was the Whampoa section, as the view of the houses was actually quite nice.

TIPS

Don't underestimate the large staircase at AMKGW. If it is too tall for you, just go around it, or skip it altogether.
