The Buki Timah Nature Reserve is a beautiful spot to enjoy the beauty of nature. You can go mountain biking through the forests, and maybe even see some wildlife like flying lemurs and long-tailed macaques. Singapore Botanic Garden is another great example as it is one of the most famous botanic gardens in the world. It has been open since 1859 and has grown immensely from then until now. The gardens offer some amazing sights, such as the National Orchid Garden.
