Geylang Park Connector / Marina East extension (6)

After Mountbatten Road, the boring track follows the Canal?s East Bank. There?s little to see here, a few apartment blocks, a school, some patches of relatively uninteresting green while the other side of the canal is occupied by several uninspiring buildings. Then you crash in another major construction site, this time for a new Expressway.

At this point I regretted to have wasted my time on this Geylang Park Connector that so far proved to be only slighlty attractive and troublesome due to all construction going on.

Via Tanjong Rhu Road you can get back to the waterfront track, and here you might be awed by a dozen of high-rise condominiums squeezed between water and East Coast Parkway. Mostly inhabited by expats and wealthy residents, rentals for 3 bedroom apartments start at about USD 3000/month as I found out during my house hunt.

There?s a pedestrian bridge over the canal towards Kallang Stadium and other sports venues, but the sophisticated waterfront drinking and dining is as well known here. The drinking scene includes a look out tower with good views and a little breeze!
