Located at the eastern end of Beach Road, opposite Golden Mile Tower, the Army Market is a popular place to go to get army supplies. On the upper floor of the Golden Mile Food Centre, it has a cluster of stalls selling army supplies and other outdoor and camping equipment, ponchos, shoes, walking sticks, torches, tents, backpacks and more. The items here are sold at almost 20% discounts compared to shops at the shopping malls. It's very convenient as you can find almost all the top brands here.

The Central Nature Reserve is the only remaining forested area in Singapore. This protected reserve comprises mainly of secondary and some patches of primary forests. Besides the well maintained walking trails of MacRitchie and Bukit Timah, there are also lesser trodden trails in the forest between Seletar and Peirce Reservoirs. Used by trekkers and the army on 'topo matches', the trails are kept fairly open.
Singapore is blessed with several nature parks, having easy to moderate hiking and jungle trails, all within half an hour's drive. While most parks are adjacent to stretches of secondary forest, the Central Catchment Nature Reserve with areas of both primary and secondary forests and 4 reservoirs, is truly a national treasure.
