The Bukit Timah Hill Visitor Centre is a good place to start your exploration of the area. You may learn about the park’s many flora and animals by visiting this location. Interactive touchscreens, instructive forest ecology and tree-spotting displays, as well as the centerpiece—two beautiful Sumatran tiger replicas—are all included in the visitor center’s exhibition gallery (an homage to the real Sumatran tigers that used to roam the reserve).
Aside from the gallery exhibits, the reserve is home to a diverse range of natural wildlife, including long-tailed macaques and a variety of bird species. One word of advice: bring insect repellent and don’t feed the monkeys.
Bukit Timah Hill, Singapore’s tallest hill, is located within the reserve. Take a hike up its 163-meter-high slopes on pathways that traverse through wooded regions. The pathways have been redesigned in 2016 with new stairs, boardwalks, and rope railings, making them simple to navigate. Depending on whether you prefer a leisurely stroll or a vigorous exercise, there are many walking routes of varied intensity to choose from.
Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and take the kids for a short nature appreciation stroll around the reserve on a weekend morning. However, keep in mind that some of the paths up Bukit Timah Hill are strenuous, so plan your journey carefully.
