Bukit Timah Nature Reserve can also be said as Singapore’s steamy heart of darkness, it is a 163-hectare tract of primary rainforest stuck to Singapore’s highest peak, Bukit Timah which has an elevation of 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 huge number of bird species. Also, you should keep in mind that the steep paths are sweaty work, so take plenty of water, protect yourself in mosquito repellent, and don’t feed the monkeys no matter how politely they ask.
