Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Eco-Tourism and Adventures in Singapore

Bukit Timah Hill is Singapore's highest natural point, though at a mere 163 metres. It’s set in the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve that’s home to a 164-hectare primary rainforest, just a half-hour ride from the heart of the city. You can reach the reserve along Upper Bukit Timah Road, right at the end of Hindhede Drive.
The park is clearly marked with trails, and you can breathe in the sights, smells, and sounds of an authentic primary forest as you walk. This essentially, was Singapore hundreds of years ago, before development.
