Visit Handerson Wave Bridge, Singapore

On 2015, I failed to visited this “phenomenal bridge”. Short layover times when heading to Cambodia made me had to waited for longer time to visited it.

On 2017, incidentally I visited Johor Bahru, Malaysia. That was the right time to visited “The Phenomenal” because its distance is near from Johor Bahru. And finally….the dream was came true.

After a half of day explored Sentosa Island by walking and also got a bonus for rode Sentosa Express Monorail, with high curiosity I immediately headed to shelter bus in front of Vivo City Mall.

Getting on bus in Singapore….Keep calm and don’t be confused because route and fare board at bus shelter can be learned quickly. Just find your destination then match it to bus number, see its distance number then match it to bus fare on board. Count ! How many shelters will be passed by bus to destination?

After bus comes, get on from front door, pay cash or tap your pass card, be aware about shelter because bus will not stop if bus doesn’t drop or pick up passengers, push button on pole to get off at next shelter !, then get off from back door and re-tap your pass card before leaving the bus.

Bus No. 145 arrived after 10 minutes waiting, by tapping two day pass (the price is about SGD 16), I got on it.

this picture isn’t the bus that I got in it.…

Even though I had explained how to got in a bus in detail, but I failed at that moment.… hahaha. I got off at a shelter before destination, which finally I had to walked to next shelter as far as 400m.

A few meters before reaching shelter, the 36 meters in high and 274 meters in length Handerson Wave Bridge was beautifully plastered above me. WOOWW, I stopped for a moment to enjoyed this British architecture.

It is very high….

What I know, Henderson Wave Bridge is the highest pedestrian in Singapore that was built to connected Mount Faber Hill and Telok Blangah Hill.

Having 7 up and down arches on one deck side makes it looks artistic. Each upward curve will forming a canopy whose space below can be made to just sitting, posing or reading like most young people do there.

look activities that citizen and tourists do on bridge

There are some warnings on the bridge. Among them are No crossing over the bridge when rain or we will be hit by storm. If you ride a bicycle, please get down and push it and also you can’t play skateboard.

Watch out….Storm !!! 

When you are on top and have phobia of heights, your adrenaline will be tested because the bridge will sway slightly in the wind.

Actually this bridge is very beautiful if you see it at night on 7:00 PM because the colorful lights will decorate it.

So don’t forget to stop by here, guys, if you go to Singapore.

Handerson Wave Bridge, Singapura

2015, Aku gagal mengunjungi “penghubung fenomenal” ini. Waktu transit yang terlalu singkat ketika menuju Kamboja membuatku harus menunggu waktu lebih lama lagi untuk menyambanginya.

2017, kebetulan Aku menyambangi Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Itulah saat yang tepat untuk mengunjungi Si Fenomenal ini karena jaraknya hanya “selemperan batu” dari Johor Bahru. Dan benar, niat itu terwujud apa adanya.

Setelah setengah hari berjalan kaki membedah Sentosa Island dan mendapat free bonus Sentosa Express Monorail, dengan rasa penasaran Aku segera menuju shuttle bus di depan Vivo City Mall.

Naik bus di Singapura itu hanya perlu tenang dan tidak perlu tanya ribut sana-sini karena papan rute dan tarif di setiap shelter bus Singapura bisa dipelajari dengan cepat. Kita hanya perlu mencari tujuan, jika sudah ketemu lalu lihat nomor busnya, perhatikan berapa kode jarak tujuan kita dan kemudian cocokkan kode jarak dengan tarif bus di papan informasi tarif. Hitunglah berapa shelter yang akan terlewati!.

Setelah bus datang naiklah dari pintu depan, bayar tunai atau tempelkan pass card, jangan meleng untuk menghitung shelter bus yang dilewati karena  jika bus tidak menurunkan atau mengambil penumpang beberapa shelter akan dilewati, pencet tombol di tiang untuk turun di shelter depan, kemudian turunlah dari pintu belakang dan tempelkan kembali pass card sebelum turun.

Bus No 145 tiba setelah 10 menit menunggu, bebekal two day pass seharga SGD 16 Aku naik.

Tapi ini bukan bus yang kunaiki ya….

Padahal Aku sudah jelaskan cara naik bus dengan detail, tapi Aku gagal kala itu…hahaha. Aku turun lebih cepat satu shelter yang akhirnya harus berjalan kaki menuju shelter berikutnya sejauh 400m.

Beberapa meter sebelum sampai shelter, Handerson Wave Bridge setinggi 36 meter terpampang gagah melintang sepanjang 274 meter diatasku. WOOWW, AKu berhenti sejenak untuk menikmati keindahan arsitektur Inggris ini.

tinggi kan….

Yang kutahu, Handerson Wave Bridge adalah pedestrian tertinggi di Singapura yang dibangun untuk menghubungkan Mount Faber Hill dan Telok Blangah Hill.

Memiliki 7 lengkungan naik turun disalah satu sisi deck membuat jembatan ini terlihat artisitik. Setiap lengkungan keatas akan membentuk kanopi yang ruang dibawahnya bisa dibuat untuk sekedar duduk, berpose atau kegiatan membaca buku seperti yang dilakukan kebanyakan anak muda disana.

tuh aktivitas diatas jembatan

Hanya saja ada beberapa peringatan di jembatan ini. Diantaranya jangan melintas diatas jembatan ketika hujan atau kita akan tersambar petir, jika naik sepeda harap turun dan dorong dan tidak boleh bermain skateboard.

handerson wvae sign

awas petiiiirrrr !!!

Ketika berada diatas bagi yang takut ketingggian akan diuji nyalinya karena badan jembatan akan sedikit bergoyang-goyang diterpa angin.

Sebetulnya jembatan ini akan cantik terlihat di malam hari mulai jam 19:00 karena cahaya lampu warna-warni akan menghiasinya.

So jangan lupa mampir kesini ya gaes kalau ke Singapura.
