It may surprise many to know that the small city-state of Singapore is only one of two cities in the world to have a significant area of primary rainforest within its boundaries – the other being Rio de Janeiro. Only 12 kilometres from the city, this lush 164-hectare reserve contains more species of trees than the entire North American continent.

Trek through the jungle via well-marked paths and look out for exotic birds, butterflies, monkeys, squirrels and flying lemurs, as well as unique plantlife like the insect-eating pitcher plant. Or hike up Bukit Timah Hill at the nucleus of the reserve – Singapore’s highest point at 164 metres above sea level.

Tips for the tour:

  • Carry water and insect repellent.
  • Get a map from the information counter, as it is easy to get lost if you go off the main road.
  • NEVER feed the monkeys
  • Collect your litter and dispose it in a bin.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and light clothing
  • Do not to touch the plants.
  • Keep noise levels to a minimum
