As close to nature as you can get. There are hiking trails with varying levels of difficulties, the easier trails are even suitable for children as young as 8-9 years old. You will be able to hear cicadas in the late evening as well.

- Singapore's highest natural point, approx. 163m above sea level. - One main, wide asphalt path up and down the hill. - Fairly steep incline for the first half or so, but can be summitted by anyone of reasonable fitness. - Toilet facilities, info and alternate path towards disused granite quarry (scenic) at Visitors Centre, foot of the hill. -...

A nice place to visit with your family, it will be best to visit in the morning so that it will not be too hot. There is also a bike trail around the nature reserve.

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, at its current state, is lacking. Due to renovation works going on to improve the safety and condition of the place, most trails have closed, and only 1 main trail to the summit is open on weekends. The climb to the top is mostly concrete, so it is not very challenging, suitable for kids. Photo op... More

The mini path leading to the trail is only about 100 m and I m not sure you can... More

I loved this place! To take a walk along the marked paths, enjoy the nature and listen to the sounds. Great way to spend half a day.
