Nam Long Shan (Brick Hill)

(2.62 kilometers)
1.5/2 hours return

Difficulty: 3/10. Really easy. Some steps but so short, there's nothing to it.

Cel phone coverage: Everywhere.

Water needs: 0.5 liter

Appreciation: 8/10 nice views of the ocean. Very short and don't expect to break a sweat (unless it's middle of summer)

Transportation: Bus 70 from Exchange Square (next to IFC mall). Drop off at Nam Long Shan. You can return from across the street

Why it's worth it:


Get off @ Nam Long Shan road. This is the stop. Then retrace your steps a bit to Nam Long Shan road and head South (turn right, onto it)

New MTR station under construction. Go underneath. You will want to stay on Nam Long Shan Road all the way to the stairs climbing Brick Hill...

You will go by this Singaporean international school

Then the Canadian school, eh?!

About 30-40 minutes onto the Nam Long Shan road walk, you'll get to this set of stairs. That's the path up Brick Hill.

Can't miss it, there's a yellow sign on the concrete well next to the stairs. And the stairs curve up and to the right

There are two pavilions on the way up. 

Almost at the top. The helipad. Once you have climbed all the way up to the cellular phone tower, you're done. Just retrace your steps

Please, don't litter!

Hiking is about communion with nature. So please pickup after yourself. There's no excuse to leave plastic bags, water bottles or any rubbish on or around the trails; if you managed to bring it, you can manage to bring it back!
