Although the main summit walk is open on weekends, much of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve remains closed, and will continue to remain closed until near the end of 2016. The summit walk is a decent hike and is quite steep in parts. The final section consists of stairs and is probably not suitable for vey young children or people with... More

This is a great place for nature lovers and for those who like hiking. Its a protected area by the National Parks and its a primary rainforest area. You walk along the nature trials and there are rest-points along the way. An average round trip hike up and down the hill will take about 3 hours. Do wear good hiking... More

The small nature reserve of Bukit Timah offers a haven of nature in the middle of the bustling town. When we went there, it had been recently open after some reconstruction: slope stabilization, trail repair and planting. There are several trails, but we decided to walk up to the summit, at 163m. It took is around 40 mins, without much... More

Hard to see the monkeys, but you can hear them. A very pleasant walk through tropical rain forest - well marked trails. Not much in the way of other information on site. Great place to exercise and feel the forest.

A secluded wander through natural "bush" in the midst of the metropolis. Native birds, monkeys and lizards abound!

Visited this place most weekends cause it was in my neighbourhood so I would run around the nature Reserve in all weathers .
