Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.

  • One word.....HOT. Despite the shade that abounds here, don't be fooled. Pretty much after mid-morning, this place is a sauna and the dense trees tend to trap the moisture from that sauna making it fee...  more »
  • I did not plan to take this route. Was just walking and saw signage so went for it. Was a nice walk and work out. Lots of steps to get the heart working hard. Unfortunately was not able to do the loop...  more »
  • Visited with my 3 kids (age 13, 8 and 6). We enjoyed the walk up and down. The distance was just nice. We also spent some time at the Summit for the kids to play. All in all, it took us about an hour....  more »

  • Great Natural Habitat and nature's best gift of natural gym. A timeless piece of nature with more species in its small area than the entire North American Contient.
  • Well maintained trails. Part of the Dairy Farm trail is currently closed due to damage. Look out for the Wallace Heritage Trail, good exhibition for the little ones
  • Awesome hiking place. Is steep so prepare relevant equipment for your knee if needed.
  • The walk up and back took roughly the better part of an hour and a half. Met a small group of monkeys and several large spiderwebs along the way. There aren't really much scenic views apart from the forest of trees that stand upright, towering over you as you continue the trek. The upwards sloping of the trail might not be for everyone, some parts are rather steep and could be cause for worry. Overall, a decent weekend outing or an exercise routine for most. *photos have been edited
  • Nice clean trails that would challenge your fitness level. Very humid. I was totally drenched after 1.5hr hike.
