  • Decided to spend some time walking up the Bukit Timah Hill. It’s a really enjoyable walk up. Nearest MRT will be beauty world station. Just remember not to feed the monkey if you see them.  more »

  • Great place to enjoy original forest in Singapore and doing some easy trek. There is many path, divided by difficult. Each one would take around 1.5 hour. Since paper map are not given due to ecology reason, just take a pic of the park map at the entrance. All along the path there's many road sign and map so it will be easy to walk through any path you will choose.
  • It has many side routes and map shows clearly where you are stands don't worry about being lost. Many hikers, families, even trail running are here. Nice for 2 hours you can do it all. You will see some lizards or monkey, butterflies, many species of trees. The hike to the top was closed during my time, ask if you don't want to waste your time, but the view over the quarry was nice, partial view.
  • A great hiking place for young and old. We went with a 7yo and a 71yo! There are different trails for different level of fitness. The trails are well kept and clean. We had a fantastic family bonding time with nature!
  • Beautiful green sights 🌲 and seeing people πŸƒπŸ» enjoying the environment through sports excites me further. Loving the green, the sun and the sights! Perfect for cycling 🚡 , walking 🚢🏻 and the nature! β˜€οΈ πŸ’¨ ☁️
  • Great place to climb. Go to the side trails instead of the main route. It's more interesting and fun!
