Robyn Eckhardt of the Wall Street Journal notes that Singapore boasts over 300 parks and four nature reserves, including the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

Travel just 6 miles from the Central Business District and you’re in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, 400 lush acres that are home to macaques, monitor lizards and an astonishing variety of birdlife and flora. The trails are in top-notch shape thanks to a recent multimillion-dollar reconstruction effort, and aren’t overly arduous, though the little-over-one-mile climb to the summit of Timah Hill, a combination of steep slopes and stairs, might leave you breathless.
