BUKIT TIMAH

The first historical record of Bukit Timah goes as far back as 1828, when Singapore was in its early days of British colonial rule. Today, the area is populated with private residential buildings and international schools for the kids of the many expats that Singapore has played host to over the years. Besides swanky houses, the iconic Bukit Timah Hill is also a hotspot for trekkers and nature-lovers.
