It is certainly a captivating experience to step out of the Singapore campus gate and mount the staircase which is positioned only a stone-throw away. So captivating, that for many of the students it was one of the first things students do, even before unpacking their bags, when they arrived here in Singapore.
The stairs give access to the canopy walk, which extend to the tree-top nature trail. At some point near the trail you can see the skyscrapers piercing the sky from between the tree canopy. What a juxtaposition! Singapore is a city of skyscrapers yes! But, undoubtedly, one of its most distinguishing features is its success at merging urban density into its clean, green, natural context. This is certainly a marvel of urban planning.
