Why should you choose to stay at the Forett @ Bukit Timah?
1. Proximity to public transportations
The Forett @ Bukit Timah is about a 1km or less away from Beauty World MRT station (Downtown Line). A walk to the train station via Jalan Jurong Kechil will take you a little more than 10 minutes.
From Beauty World MRT station, you’re three stops to Botanic Gardens MRT station, where you can access the Circle Line. Take the Circle Line to Buona Vista MRT station (East-West Line) or Bishan MRT station (North-South Line).
You’re also six stops away to Newton MRT station from Beauty World MRT station, where you can take the North-South Line to Orchard, Somerset, and Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. Dhoby Ghaut MRT station is an interchange with access to at least three rail lines – North-South, North-East, and the Circle Line.
There’s a bus stop (Stop ID: 42221) right outside the Forett @ Bukit Timah. You can find bus 41 and 77 servicing the vicinity.
Bus 41 takes you to Beauty World Station, Bukit Timah Plaza, and Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School. While bus 77 drops by King Albert Park Station, Holland Village, and Tang Plaza.
You can also tread a little further to the bus stop before Jalan Jurong Kechil (Stop ID: 42231) and hop on bus 173 to get to Clementi Interchange and Nan Hua Primary School.
For more bus options, walk about 500m from the condominium to the main road along Jalan Jurong Kechil to reach the bus stop at block 18 (Stop ID: 42161). There are a total of 11 buses servicing the area from that particular bus stop.
2. Grocery, shopping and services
The nearest supermarkets are within a 10-minute drive away from the Forett @ Bukit Timah – Giant Supermarket and FairPrice Finest. Giant Supermarket is located within Beauty World Centre along Upper Bukit Timah Road and FairPrice Finest is at Bukit Timah Plaza at No.1 Jalan Anak Bukit.
Those who prefer to shop at Cold Storage can take a further drive (about 11 minutes) to get to 1 Fifth Avenue. Cold Storage is located at Guthrie House.
Shopping malls not too far away from the Forett @ Bukit Timah include – Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, Beauty World Centre, Beauty World Plaza, Bukit Timah Plaza, and KAP Mall.
But for a wide range of shops, we recommend that you take a drive to the Jurong East area. Jurong East is about a 10- to 15-minute drive from the property and has shopping malls situated very close to each other – Jcube, JEM, Westgate, and IMM.
JEM, Westgate, and IMM shopping malls are interlinked with sheltered walkways so you can park your vehicle at any one mall and walk your way to either or all of the malls.
JEM has fashion stores like Benjamin Barker, Dorothy Perkins, MANGO, and Uniqlo. While Westgate has Bata, Bonia, Calvin Klein Jeans, and Pandora. Looking for more options? Walk over conveniently via the overhead bridge linking Ng Teng Fong General Hospital from Westgate to get to IMM.
You can run some errands with the shopping mall options closer to home. For example, Bukit Timah Shopping Centre has ExcelPrint Photocopy & Printing located within the building for your printing needs. There’s also an OCBC Bank branch at level one.
But if you’re planning to shop and get some errands done at the same time, we highly recommend you to go to one of the malls at Jurong East. IMM has a money changer, a floral shop, and laundry shop. Singapore Pools is located at level two of the mall.
3. Food options
Residents of the Forett @ Bukit Timah, you’re in for a treat along Cheong Chin Nam Road. It’s a 5-minute drive or 15-minute walk from home. Along the street, you will find eateries like Al-Azhar Restaurant, G7 Sinma Claypot, and Lao Jiang Superior Soup.
Domino’s Pizza and Korean restaurants such as Three Meals A Day and Oven & Fried Chicken are just around the corner, along Chun Tin Road. If you’re driving, you can park your car along Cheong Chin Nam Road. But it gets quite packed in the evenings so we recommend parking at Jalan Seh Chuan Car Park instead.
To soak in the weekend cafe vibes, Lorong Kilat has it all. Revelry, The Signature Patisserie, and Carpenter & Cook are highly rated by the public so give it a try. You can also have your ice cream fix at Udders Ice Cream (Lorong Kilat). Prefer to cook some Korean cuisines yourself? Get your ingredients from Koryo Mart, at 17 Lorong Kilat.
And how can we forget the Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre? It’s a 15-minute walk away from the Forett @ Bukit Timah. Here’s the place to go to if you don’t mind the outdoor seating areas. There are local foods like satay bee hoon, fried carrot cake, and fried Hokkien mee. There’s also a wet market if you want to get the freshest meat and vegetables from local vendors.
Oh yes, in case you’re wondering, the nearest MacDonald’s is at Beauty World Centre!
