Its a good hiking sport for weekend and for the family. Lots of lush greens, monkeys, birds to watch, trails to walk, and the wonderful sound of insects. If you are game, you can even walk across to the Central Water catchment area.

The partk is open again after being closed for restoration which has been well done. Its a 30 min slow walk to the summit. The first 10 minutes of the walk is on a steep gradient but it evens out later. Its humid in the forest so bring water to hydrate yourself. Luckily the tree cover is extensive so not... More

I had always wanted to visit Bukit Timah over many years. It is so close and easy to access by MRT. Get off at Beauty World and walk 500 metres to the east. Great exercise by brisk walk or slow jog as it can be a little crowed on weekends. Set in a beautiful part of Singapore. Spend some time... More

The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve was recently re-opened after the completion of upgrading works. The walking trails in the forest were upgraded, and a new toilet area was built. Some parts of the trails in the forest are more difficult than others, with quite high steps to climb. The forest trails are not recommended for the elderly as they can... More

Relatives of my wife had taken us out for dim sum and then asked if we had hiked Bukit Timah. We had in the past, but wanted to see what changes may have been made during its closure. So, off we went. Fortunately, when we started, it was overcast. That was a good thing since it was midday. We first... More

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is easily accessible from city center via the Downtown Line. Get off at the Beauty World stop, walk through the Beauty World mall and go out the back, go over the overhead bridge, turn left, and you will be right there. You will see some wild monkeys, but there is a steep fine/prison time if you... More

Climb to the highest point in Singapore along paved and unpaved trails and roads. Visit the former quarry, now a large lake created by rainwater over the past 40 years. Meet lots of friendly people and enjoy the beautiful rain forest.

Best to go in the morning on a working day after a heavy rain (the night before). You can smell the fresh cool air while you hike. Lesser crowd on weekday morning. Hike through the cave path and jungle fall path. It's more interesting.
