In spite of its heat and humidity, as well as the erratic weather that characterises the island's climate, Singapore is easily one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in the region. By dressing sensibly, taking along an umbrella and carrying a bottle of water, you'd be ready for travel on foot, come rain and shine.

There are plenty of well-maintained sidewalks and pedestrian crossings, and drivers here are typically careful. Roads are usually marked with signposts, and maps are comprehensive and easily available. In short, you don't have to worry about getting lost.

The best times to see Singapore on foot is in the early morning or the late afternoon and evening, when the weather is cooller. Walking tours allow you to experience the city up close and personal, giving you the chance of uncovering some gems along the way.

Here, we introduce walking trails and self-guided tours of different lengths that offer you the flexibility and freedom of crafting your own experience of Singapore. The maps provided in the following tours can be viewed on your mobile phone which, when paired with GPS, will help serve as your personal tour guide.
