2. Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

If you’re a nature lover, this place is made for you! Its rich and diverse biodiversity is perfect to get your body moving while admiring the beauty of wildlife.

Fun fact: it is actually the first ASEAN heritage park! Its new Visitor Centre actually has some new trails for you to try out- so its time to rediscover this place!

The best time to go there is during the migratory season, from September to March where you will be able to see a lot of birds around you. If you love animals and mangroves, this one is definitely made for you!

3. Dairy Farm Nature Park

This one is for all the adventurers who have always wanted to have a real jungle experience! Recently opened, this trekking trail is one of the rare spots in Singapore that only a few people know about (you included!). Located in the middle of the forest, the trail starts from the Dairy Farm Nature Park and it brings you all the way up to the top of Bukit Timah Hill. Make sure to watch out for bikers and try out the Wallace Trail while you’re there :)

Psstt.. don’t forget to wear comfortable hiking shoes and quick drying hiking apparel as you WILL be climbing some stairs!!

4. Kranji Marshes

If you’re looking for a beginner friendly and more gentle trail for walking, then Kranji Marshes is the place for you.

Opened to the public only three years ago, this wetland is perfect for a quiet and pleasant getaway. This easy path is actually the largest freshwater marshland in Singapore.

Don’t miss the Raptor Tower where you can get a panoramic view and take amazing pictures of the surroundings. We even heard that you might be able to see a lot of birds, butterflies and even dragonflies during your excursion.

5. Pulau Ubin’s Puaka Hill

For an amazing view over Singapore and Malaysia, you should definitely check out Pulau Ubin’s Puaka Hill!

Located around 15min by boat from Singapore, this island will definitely give you the full jungle experience. There are four different stations where you can stop, and of course, the last one offers you the best view! Just make sure to be careful as there are no guardrails along the way.

The hike is pretty short (around 20 mins) but it will be a good workout thanks to its steep path and stairs. But we assure you the peak will be all worth it (for you and for your Instagram ;) )!
