Punggol @ Promenade is one small part of the PCN – Park Connector Network in Singapore.  Stepping onto this piece of green in the morning, you’ll be stunned by the wonderful scene of the surrounding.

The fresh air accompany by the scenic landscapes are always so alluring. People gather around.  Joggers, cyclists, even stalkers are here seeking for moment of calm and serenity.

Thousands of rippers flowing like million of shrimps.  A common scene on this old Sungei Serangoon.

It flows by the side of Sengkang and Hougang estates, the point ended and reaches the heart of the heartlanders.

One side of the trail is meant for cyclist while the other for strollers or joggers.  Another course of action is to choose the middle path to fasten your body’s bolts and nuts!

Sitting on the wooden bench while enjoying this beautiful moment of dawn, looking into the mist between the forests, what could be better than a lifetime in this minute?

Besides health seekers doing their leisure walks, you’ll discover some fairies around the corner waiting for your exploration.

They are always there, humming and listening to the footsteps of passer-by.

The sunlight cast a silhouette on the Halus Bridge, at the same time casting away our worries and defilements.

Welcome!  The river of the rising sun!

A warm smile from the Sun above Sunrise Bridge, will lead you to the enchanting mangroves and wetlands.

Birds of the wild enjoy loitering around for a simple breakfast.

And what about the wild flowers happily wearing the newly crocheted web gifted by brother of nature?

Not just one or two…but uncountable!

A rigid but wave-like timber platform bridge leads to further side of Punggol.

As you step down from the bridge, a reddish-soiled path welcome you like a red carpet as you start the next scenic trip to Coney Island.

    Places like this are much better than cities. After being in a city too long it feels very refreshing to be somewhere with more nature than concrete.
