UPPER BUKIT TIMAH

An extended region from the main district of Bukit Timah, one area of note here is the abandoned railway station that links Johor to Tanjong Pagar, where the train tracks remain as part of the 26km walking route connecting a couple nature spaces such as Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Also, a major (private) residential district and regular hangout spot for the wealthier folks of Singapore.
