    Singaporean said only got 30 – 45 minutes to join us, what they can do in 9 of them?

      Greetings to you. You can drop them off at the main entrance of Tanjung Tuan Forest Reserve. 45 minutes would be sufficient to take a quick walk to the light house to watch the raptors flying ahead. However, we would recommend at least 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours to truly experience the event.
