Bukit Brown, with the highway under construction can be a frustrating place to visit for first timers. The reason being is there are now 2 entry points and they connect with each other only in a very small area inside of Bukit Brown. This leads to the potential of tour participants joining the wrong group and this happened in our case as they were two meeting points. Fortunately since we had two tours running simultaneously, this was less of a concern as people could still participate.
