Everyone who enjoys hiking has hiked Broga Hill, it’s an easy-climb journey, and is only 400-meters high above sea level. Plus, the view at the top makes waking up at dawn all the more worthwhile, and there’s a stall at the top of the hill that sells coconut water for hikers to cool down with. A fun fact about the location: if you climb Broga Hill ten times, it’s the equivalent of climbing Mount Kinabalu.  Website
