5 Best Scenic Running Routes
Running is a sport enjoyed by many in Singapore. However, running the same route repeatedly may make it boring.
Here are some of our top routes to run in Singapore with great views!
#1: Punggol Waterway
Punggol Waterway is globally recognised by the International Water Association when it was the first in Asia to receive the prestigious Global Superior Achievement Award for being an outstanding project.
Running through Punggol Waterway Park along the river will allow you to witness magnificent views, especially during sunrise and sunset.
This popular route, loved by many runners, can bring you to Lorong Halus Wetlands and Coney Island to be one with nature.
Psst, check out the Sunrise Point, the view of the sunrise there is spectacular! :)

The Kallang Basin running route is loved by many and is frequented by runners everyday.
If you want to get a great view at Singapore’s spectacular landscape, this is the route to take! You will be welcomed by the Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands, and our multiple skyscrapers.
Running this route in the evening is great at the sea breeze will cool things down and you can stand in awe at Singapore’s lighted up landscape! :)

Bring your running habit to the heart of Singapore! The trails around Marina Bay offer great sights for runners. Enjoy the views of the Merlion, Helix Bridge, Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay!
There is so much to see around Marina Bay and you should not miss out on the opportunity to do so. No more excuses to not run after work when there are perfect trails to do so.

East Coast Park, also known as ECP, is the go-to place for everyone! From kite-flying to cycling, everyone has something to do here. You will most probably see a huge number of runners along ECP.
This runners' hot spot is loved by many as marathons in Singapore utilise this route often. No matter the time of the day, ECP offers the pleasing views of the sea with many ships docked, awaiting their turn to get to the harbour.
Views are exceptional during sunrise and sunset and many come to ECP just for that. Grab your running shoes and get to ECP! :)
