Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
Reserve Bukit-Timah covers an area of 1.6 square kilometers. It is located almost in the very center of the city and is located on the slopes of the hill Bukit Timah. The hill of the same name is the highest point Singapore The height of the hill is 164 meters. In the reserve more than 800 species plants and about 500 species of fauna. Now he is considered the only the largest rain forest remaining in Singapore.
The territory of the reserve also includes nearby areas. which are residential buildings, urban drainage, Botanical garden (despite the fact that the map is quite removed from Bukit Timah Hill), and Fort Canning.
Singapore has an incredible feature. On its small square this state managed to place a lot of masterpieces architecture, museums, theaters, temples, as well as tropical gardens and the woods. Not so long ago, less than 100 years ago, there were tigers here and even there were cases of their attack on people. Singapore managed to save this piece of real jungle! True, tigers are no longer here. there is, of course, happy, I would not want to be someone lunch time
Now the reserve is a completely safe natural area. Great for a walk. Although it is real jungle with lakes and mountains, everything is thought out for a comfortable leisure and safety. There are benches, paths, bridges and steps. It will be nice to walk along the three lakes or make a great photo. on one of the bridges.
Option route for the reserve
Walking, you can meet nimble monkeys who will try to grab what you have in your hands or look in your bag. Be careful and vigilant. Feed Anyone Met you animals and birds is prohibited by law! Already said this in other posts about Singapore, but it’s better to be reminded many times to protect tourists from fines. And feeding wild animals can be also dangerous. Monkeys are capable of biting, not just cute chew bananas.
There are many places in the reserve for great selfies, because you being in the heart of Singapore, will plunge into the real jungle rain trees. You will feel the humidity of the air, you will hear the sounds of birds filling the jungle, walk along the suspension bridge high above the ground. On the shore of one of the lakes, you can see low sheer cliffs complement this beautiful landscape.
You won’t get lost in the jungle. At the entrance issue map, and on each path there are signs. Walk through The reserve will take about two to three hours. You can ride on Reserve on the excursion tram. With you necessarily take drinking water.
The entrance to the reserve is free and access is round-the-clock, but still I do not advise to go there after sunset. Best time to visit with six in the morning and about 7 in the evening.
