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
A preserved natural beauty! Kudos to authorities! You can visit even in hot sun as the tall trees provides enough shade and you can feel the oxygenated air! Joggers paradise! Enjoy your time by sitting in chairs located beside the water body (rain water pool on rock quarry). A place to spend time with family and friends of all ages.
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.
I like it. Walking path well maintained. Relatively easy to find car park. Fresh air and nice forest environment in a city of concrete jungle. And it is very safe too. Suitable weekday evening and at weekends. I venture into Bukit Timah nature reserve regularly. Highly recommended.
Had wonderful experience .. done trekking for 9 KM and explored whole reserve.. recommendations are carry good amount of water, light snacks.. advised to visit in the morning and come out by lunch time.. you have lot of hawker centers for all cuisines ..
A welcome escape from the urban city hustle and bustle. Dress cool with comfortable shoes. There are multiple paths with varied difficulties. These are marked with colored stakes. Red striped stakes indicate the hardest. The view at the top is the final destination, but the journey up or down the slopes is what makes this place special. Take the time to savor the sounds, smells and sights of this hill . If you have more time, walk to the quarry and take in the cliffs that has been formed from history of granite quarry. They used to mine these via explosives back in the 1960s.
