1. For those who believe nature is home:

a) Hike

To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles - Mary Daly

Never ever miss any chance to witness such miracles. So, If you like some cheap thrills with panoramic views of Singapore then do what most of the people always prefer to do – walk. Pack your bags with food and a camera, and hike into deep dense forests. Far from the bustling crowds of the city, Singapore has many trails like The Southern Ridges, MacRitchie Reservoir Park, Fort Canning Park, The Green Corridor, Mount Faber Park, etc where people can go for a hike. It indeed is a wonder to find dense forests here contrary to pictures of Singapore we have always seen on the internet.
