This article was written by our Tribes by HHWT member, Asyiqin J. One fine morning, I woke up from bed and decided to explore the Jubilee Walk for my morning adventure, a route I have wanted to do for quite some time. To just take a morning walk and capture photos of the places around me. Jubilee Walk was launched in 2015 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence. It is an eight-kilometre trail, starting from the National Museum of Singapore and ends at Marina Barrage. I referred to the Jubilee Walk reference map to guide me through.

Like me, you can take all the time in the world to snap countless photos, and you won’t have to deal with any crowd anywhere! The trip should last you 2-3 hours, depending on your speed and your pit stops. But of course, if you are like me, who is not a photography enthusiast (I had to take a couple of shots to get a satisfactory one), then you will spend a longer time. Tips:• Get your camera ready (if you’re using your mobile phone to take photos, make sure you bring along a portable charger) • Wear comfortable shoes The weather can get scorchinghot, so remember to: • Hydrate yourself as much • Put on sunblock/cover-up So, is anyone excited yet to explore the Jubilee Walk for your next morning adventure? 😊
