Take a little walk on the far side... Hill 4 with Darren (09.30 am Sept 25, 2016)

The guides seldom bring people here - simply because it is a little farther than the other hills. But it does not mean it has fewer stories - oh on the contrary, it has many stories to be told! Come join Darren on a morning walk through Hill 4 and visit with some war heroes, some patriachs of old and see a seldom seen side of Bukit Brown!

Please note: you MUST use mosquito repellents and you must be covered up for some of the mosquitoes we will encounter are commando-trained!


The guided walk starts at 09.30 am and will end at 12.00 pm

Meeting Point: Meeting Point B. See map below (click on "Read More"). More instructions and photos at http://bukitbrown.com/main/?p=10124
