Bukit Timah Nature Reserve - Review
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is a 163 hectare of primary rainforest embracing Bukit Timah, the highest peak (163 meters) in Singapore. It is said that you’d find more tree species here in comparison to the entire continent of North America. The reserve is home to wildlife like monkeys, a varied variety of bird species, pythons, and more. The steep paths may demand an extra effort; however, the climb is completely worth it. There is also a bike trail around the reserve. Also, visit nearby attractions in the city which are covered in Singapore itinerary 2 days.

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore Reviews
Really nice place for outdoor exercise and being with nature. Singapore is very small and can sometimes feel lacking in outdoor exploration opportunities but this can offer a bit of a reprieve. Quite a few different hiking/walking paths, as well as mountain biking trails. Good place for families to spend the day. It's very popular on weekends and lots of people around. There are some routes that are a bit more challenging in terms of the elevation gain, but anyone with lots of experience outdoors might need to do repeats of routes to really feel a burn. Many opportunities for beginners too.
A nice hike that's not too strenuous. If you are looking for an easy hike this one is for you. It's not too steep or long and it's completely shaded by tree canopy. The trail itself is free but you do pay a small bit for parking. The main path is wide and made of rough concrete so its safe even when wet from rain. The main path also doesn't include stairs so they are safe for almost anyone. Going at a normal pace I think it took around an hour round trip. The scenery is made up of thick vegetation with an occasional monkey or squirrel sighting. All and all this was a pleasurable side trip if you have the extra time for a hike
An excellent trail! The forest canopy provides the cover you need from sun and rain. Bring at least 600ml of water - you will lose a lot in perspiration ascending the summit. The paths are clearly demarcated. The steps are mixed between steel and railway ties. The grade is relatively steep when following the non-tarmac trail, so expect to get a great interval workout, regardless of you walk or jog. A little advice: take your headphones off if you’re accustomed to running or walking with music on - the Natural sounds coming from the forest surrounding you needs to be appreciated. I believe it makes it more enjoyable.
Lovely forest trail not too far from the city. The gradient is steep on the main route but there are alternate easier routes to take. Well maintained. Look out for some nocturnal creatures like the Malayan Colugo sleeping on the trees.
The highest place in Singapore with primary forest surrounding it. However do not expect a view of Singapore at the peak. There are many trails. The dairy farm loop with its step stairs being the most challenging IMHO. Take the main road from the visitor centre to test those legs of yours. Half a day should be sufficient.
