Bukit Timah Reserve is perched on top of the highest peak of Singapore, Bukit Timah (163 meters). It is a very small reserve (around 1.5 km stretch), yet preserves 40% of the country’s flora and fauna. In spite of its small size, this national rainforest shelters more species of trees than the North American continent. The only way to reach the top is by trekking, which is fun and adventurous as you will encounter many species of flora and animals on the way up.
Highlights: Declared in 2011 – ASEAN heritage site; Trek to the Bukit Timah through a steep and slippery trail; dwelling to many native wildlife such as pythons, long tailed macaques which you may see on the way up. There’s also an eco-link, an ecological bridge that connects the Bukit Timah to the Central Catchment reserve.
Location:Hindhede Dr, Singapore.
Hours open: 6 am to 7 pm
