Beautiful Roads of SG

By Blogger on 19 Apr 2010

When Singapore roads are mentioned, the image conjured is often of well paved roads with HDB blocks rising in all directions and the next traffic light a few meters away. Hop over to our neighbouring country and the view changes dramatically. Especially when going up to places like Ipoh where dramatic views are a sight to behold along the way. Over in the European countries roads such as the Le Viaduc de Millau just demands you to slow down and take in the amazing sight.

So what if you just want to take a chill out drive on a lazy weekend afternoon? Well, thankfully, there are still places in Singapore where is more than just concrete and traffic lights.

Take Mandai road for example, located at the peripherals of the Upper Seletar Reservoir. This gorgeous, although rather short road mimics the feel of driving along in a countryside with a beautiful lake to the left. Travel pass it in the evening on a clear day, the water ripples and dazzles with the setting sun.

A picture postcard moment.

It's a pity I can't stop to take a better picture, it is hard to drive and snap at the same time. [:(]

If you fancy just a straight long drive without feeling like you are driving in town, there is the all famous Changi Coast Road that runs for a good 8km or so along side the Changi Airport Runway. When I am feeling stressed or depress, driving down this road almost always gurantee a quick relieve. Best of all, do it driving top down. Ah, driving nirvana.

Cruising with one of these top down on a coastal road is a bliss

Not only do their passion for cars burn pavements, their thoughts and ideas on cars are as fast as the word go.

I prefer driving down west coast highway at night with the top down. Very few cars and the sensation of wind blowing at ur face is very shiok.

Not a lot of places to drive topless in singapore though.
