  • an excellent hill with lots of wildlife and trees and stuff. Very clean very quiet. Visit the caves of the past war-time. Spring water also flows down. Visit the quarries (SG and Bukit Timah hill) or even go to the train track that was decommissioned a long time ago. There is toilet here as well as parking.
  • A natural haven for local wild life with lots of natural vegetations. It is also a huge water catchment area. A favourite place for hikers and family outtings. Dated : 29/10/2017 ( Sunday ).

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.
