Sight Seen : Magical Singapore and Thailand - Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Singapore - Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Singapore's steamy Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is a 163-hectare tract of primary rainforest clinging to Singapore's highest peak, Bukit Timah (163m). The reserve holds more tree species than the entire North American continent, and its unbroken forest canopy shelters what remains of Singapore's native wildlife, including long-tailed macaques (monkeys), pythons and dozens of bird species. The revamped visitor centre reopened in 2016, along with upgraded trails, and showcases the area's flora and fauna including two Sumatran tigers who once roamed Singapore.
Also, keep in mind that the steep paths are sweaty work, so take plenty of water, embalm yourself in mosquito repellent, and don't feed the monkeys no matter how politely they ask.
