How is it to have a huge nature reserve right in the middle of a city? That's exactly what you will find here. Bukit Timah nature reserve is in the middle of country of Singapore and a well justified nature reserve.
It doesn't get dark in Singapore till 7.30pm but Bukit Timah nature reserve closes by 6 because the nature reserve in this part of the world is a tropical rain forest, which means the sunlight rarely penetrates to the ground even in broad daylight leaving lesser visibility for walkers.
To get there:
Buses run from any part of the central business district to Bukit Timah.
You can also take a taxi and despite the slight distance, the fares are not too high as this is outside the business district.
It might not be a good idea to picnic in the nature reserve. I didn't see any litter at all through my half hour walk circuit. So please don't carry snacks or litter.
