Another new nature park in Singapore. The Thomson Nature Park! Am blessed living in this country that is making effort to include preserve eco system as part of the infrastructure on this urbanised island.
This is a 50-hectare park that not only just a park, but is special for its rich heritage culture, because i realise during the walk, there was actually a Hainan Village back in the early 19 century, Fascinating!
All the images were captured at the time between late morning to mid afternoon. It takes about 1 hour to walk slowly, see the surrounding and enjoy the forestry air, if you trek into various trails to explore will take a longer time. Be prepare to face an army of mosquitoes, am sure you know what to do to protect your skin.
If you are going to bring along your DSLR camera, grab your wide angle and a telephoto lenses. The wide angle mainly for the beautiful scenery, some scene may need to push up the ISO because of the canopy. The telephoto lenses can be used to zoom in when you see a long stretch of path, or if you are lucky enough to spot the Raffles’ Banded Langur high up on the tree. Bring an empty water bottle, you can do your refilling outside the toilet. Do say hi to the cleaner as he is doing a very hard work to keep the park clean, i had already seen plastic bottle on the floor, tie to a vine while walking the same path twice. Parking slots are limited especially on the weekend, is better to take Grab service or public transport.
