You might want to try the Singapore Botanic Gardens and Alexandra Butterfly trail for a start. Both places are good for insect macros. After which, u can explore sungei buloh, bukit timah,zoo, birdpark, etc. :)

Ops.. It shld be Alexandra Hospital butterfly trail located at Alexandra Hosiptal. :D Take train to queenstown mrt and then bus 195. I think alight on the third stop. You shld be able to see the hospital on the right hand side. It is free. Same goes for the botanic gardens except the orchid garden. Click on mega's link to find out more. ;)
