    I have learned a lot about Singapore's history such as how it when it was founded and history of conflicts. It was very enriching and would definitely go again

    We had an absolutely amazing time at the Singapore F1, we booked tickets directly with F1, and although they were issued quite late, they were completely painless to download and add to the Singapore F1 app.

    We managed to get a hotel which was very close indeed, which was more by luck that judgment, and it was a fantastic and reasonably priced hotel... The Peninsula.

    The track itself opened around 2pm each day, and after being there that early on the Friday, we decided to get there later on each of the Saturday and Sunday mainly so we could make use of air conditioning as it was so so hot and humid.

    The facilities at the track were great, a great selection of food, although to be honest, not a lot for vegetarians apart from fries and plain pasta, but it was the same wherever you went in Singapore, I don't think they are into the veggie thing yet.

    We had a Padang combination ticket, we absolutely loved the Stamford and Padang grandstands, the Pitt grandstand not so much.. not least because it involved miles of walking on uneven ground and up and down stairs over bridges... and to be honest, you didn't see a lot either. We ended up watching qualifying on a big screen.

    The weather was very kind to us, but as I say, very hot indeed.

    All the surrounding areas were very accommodating and welcoming to the F1 fans, there wasn't any trouble at all, and we loved the fact that we could visit so many hotels to check out the different teams' cars, etc.

    We saw Culture Club, Groove Armada and Robbie Williams, all of whom were amazing!

    I would certainly recommend every F1 fan tries it at least once!

    Review of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore

    The review focuses upon the trail to the summit of Bukit Timah Hill within the context of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (‘BTNR’) and the socio-economic value of open green spaces for local communities – everywhere.
    Head for the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (‘BTNR’) and you’re in the centre of the island and about 10 km from the country’s commercial district and the popular tourist heartlands of Marina Bay, the heritage buildings in the ex-colonial administrative area and, of course, the Gardens by the Bay. This is where short-term visitors can typically be found – at those well-known international destinations. And why not – this is a comfortable, well-managed and interesting country.
    Want to explore the back blocks of the country? Here you’re far more likely to meet the locals; to escape the traffic, high rise, noise, etc. and to enjoy the relative tranquillity of the native rainforest with the flora and fauna that has been carefully encouraged, re-introduced, nurtured and more; to catch a glimpse of the island as-it-once-was before the modern era? That will mean taking a relative subjective view of what you can see and do in the wilderness areas that have been (re-)established over the years.
    The parks, reserves, wet-lands and water catchment areas available across the island represent an asset beyond measure to the country – in the preservation of what once was, but also in the way that these lands/forests have been made available to local people – for recreation, access to nature and the personal health/well-being that comes from escaping the built environment.
    The lands/forests are well-used by local people. Of a weekend, for example the trails, stairways, tracks and surfaced access roads are the domain of bikes, scooters and walkers – many in family groups with kids in pushchairs or in backpacks. Exercise people can be found everywhere. And why not. We had a couple of hours enjoying the trail in the BTNR – from the enormous Visitor Centre at the base of the summit trail to the rock on the summit that proudly promote it as the highest point in the island at 163.63 m. Stand on the summit rock – as many people were doing for a photo shot – and, for a few minutes, you’re the highest girl/boy/woman/man in the country.
    Start with the BTNR then. Well, it’s small at just 1.7 km2. It runs consecutively with the Dairy Farm Nature Park and a couple of quarries to the north and, to the south, two smaller nature reserves and wetlands.
    Next to the BTNR, and separated by the Bukit Timah Expressway, is the Central Catchment Area – comprising a mix of nature reserves, lakes, open lands and forestlands with a core area estimated >40 km2. There are additional green lands linking the core with the northern and western coasts of the island. So, lots of walking/biking opportunities.
    The history of the island’s timber/land resources during the colonial years has always been one of exploitation – extracting timber and working the land for minerals. Fortuitously, the island’s authorities had sufficient to vision – late 19th century remember – to evaluate land cover/forests and then to establish a series of nature reserves. BTNR was the first in 1883. This did not halt exploitation, but it subsequently led to further protective measures and resulted in the 28 km2 reserves island-wide available today - under the control of the National Parks Board.
    Of course, none of this was clear at the time we chose to walk to the top of Bukit Timah Hill. We estimated the walk at 2.50 km one way. It took us about 45 minutes following the tar seal track – four adults and three little kids – the three-year-old with a push chair in reserve. Apart from the first 250 m which were steep, it was an easy shallow gradient for most of the way. The alternative 150 m steps that provide a shorter route to the summit were closed off.
    Round the final bend and there’s this surprisingly open platform of land – no point, of course, but simply level/rounded land with a public shelter. Take a seat and look around you. There were an estimated 50 people doing just that when we were there. Perhaps, one of the most interesting features was the historical ‘Summit’ board which described the hill – in words and photos - during the 19th C. The hill was largely denuded of cover. Everything you see today >120 years later is new. There used to be a ‘rest house’ here for the selected few to escape the colony for a few days … at a cost of S$2/day in 1892. (It was not clear if this was in 1890’s or today’s money.) Whatever, it attracted limited interest by that time and, in the early 1900s, it was replaced by a telecommunication tower. Now there’s a choice.
    Gorgeous, lush green foliage and endless trees envelope the trail to the summit. Eighty years of protected management? Tropic rainforests grow fast when encouraged. Of the wildlife there we saw a handful of monkeys, some distant/noisy birds; and the people - the majority were middle- to vintage-age, and there were fewer younger people/families. It was decidedly easier when descending, but the addition of more strategically spaced benches would have made the walking easier both ways. At the beginning of the trail the Visitor’s Centre was still closed.
    For those interested getting to the trail is easy. Head for the Beauty World MRT station. Through the Mall behind, cross the Upper Bukit Timah Road bridge, then 400 m along Hindhede Road is the Visitor’s Centre. Make sure you get there before it closes.

    We were very impressed with the lifeguards - friendly, always alert and we felt safe allowing our grandchildren (ages 6 & 8 both swimmers) to, in their excitement, run to the next activity out of sight. We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 hrs in the water park.

    My first time ever VR experience, coming from someone who has never even played on consoles and it took my breath away. Had an eight year old with us and he enjoyed it immensely. Darsh was patient, friendly and efficient. The place is a bit hidden but easy enough to find. Highly recommended.

    I would always pass by this place and I still don't dare to try. Usually the opening will around the evening till night. And if you want to challenge, you can challenge both of the rides. One is like a huge huge swing, whereas the other one will shoot you up sky high

    I piloted the F/A - 18C Hornet for 90 minutes, which was an amazing experience. Mike, a retired airforce pilot with over 15 years of flight experience, provided a succinct introduction about the aircraft and its operation. He delivered just the right amount of information - enough to navigate the plane effectively, but not so much that it was overwhelming.

    Mike's knowledge and ability to explain complex ideas, coupled with his humor, made the experience enjoyable. He even provided a pilot suit and took memorable photos of me next to the flight simulator. For anyone seeking an authentic flight simulator experience, I highly recommend this team. They are the best and most qualified you'll find.

    Tried several hiking trails in this nature park. Love the northern trail that leads to Fallen Tree and Fallen Tree Reservoir best. This trail can also lead to Mandai Track 15 if you jead further north.

    My kids (11, 7) had lots of fun.. i booked 2 hours slot and was not quite sure whether my kids will be entertained for the full time and expected they will get bored. but to my surprise they not only utilised the time in full but wanted to come back again.
    they were super tired by end of the 2 hours. glad we went there.
