As we explore more of Singapore during this period that we are unable to travel, it's amazing how the country never fails to surprise us! If you're going cycling or hiking in the Northeast of Singapore, there's a hidden gem that you have to add to your list: Seletar North Link bridge!
While most people who have gone on the Northeast Riverine Loop park connector are familiar with the beautiful Coney Island and Punggol Waterway Park
, Seletar North Link bridge might not ring a bell. But venture off the park connector and you'll be rewarded with this enchanting view of Sungei Punggol! The reflection of trees in the still waters and the gorgeous symmetry looks like it's straight out of a postcard. One look and you might mistake this for a nature spot overseas 😍

The Seletar North Link bridge is a popular pit stop for cyclists, as it's part of a route which connects Punggol to Yishun. The bridge is located in between Punggol Timor Island and Punggol Barat Island. The spot is a hidden gem for couples to take their wedding
photos and we can definitely see why! There's also a breakwater area where you can relax in peace and take in the beauty of the river.
The best pictures are taken during sunset on a clear day when the river will reflect the lush greenery and the blue sky. But fret not, even if you visit on a cloudy day or foggy morning, it'll give your photos a different feel. If you're lucky, you might even get to spot some otters!
How to get to Seletar North Link bridge From the Northeast Riverine Loop park connector, turn into Seletar North Link once you see the Marina Country Club. You'll have to go past the dam, the S11 Dormitory and Seletar Link. Just stay on the same path till you meet the bridge. If you're cycling, it'll take you around 10 minutes to get from the park connector and if you're walking, it will take around 20-30 minutes. For those of you are driving, do note that there's no official parking there and you'll have to park at the side of the road. Do be careful as you're cycling or walking to the bridge as the area is full of construction sites and heavy trucks.
So, if you're planning your next hike
or cycling trip, why not stop by Seletar North Link bridge? Let your buddies know about this spot and plan your next hiking or cycling trip! Address: Seletar North Link
