One of the best places in Singapore, with most character. It's a lovely area with a trekking path all around the lake, so you can end up spending an entire day at this peaceful reservoir. When we visited there were monkeys free-roaming all around, and a lot of youngsters playing in the trees and near the water. It was wonderfully... More

I choose this place for free day when I was in Singapore. Nature hides in the city atmosphere. You should try the trail which lead you to the lovely treetop walk. The distance around 9.6 km.

Was brought there by a colleague for a morning jog. The trail was not complicated and not too tough. Very nice scenery especially when you approach the reservoir area.

When we visit Singapore, since Mac Ritchie is close to apartment we stay, we will take afternoon walk there. Walk to the forest and enjoy the variety of plant with our kids, it is both healthy and educational for them. If you are tired, just sit by the edge of the walk path along the reservoir, some times the monkey... More

One day I noticed that one of the busses that I regularly take (130) passes the MacRitchie Reservoir. On a whim we decided the same day to check it out. It was a Sunday, but it was abolutely not crowded. We combined the nature trail, the treetop walk, the golf track and some board walks to make our way all... More

Whether you are a fitness guru or casual walker, I highly suggest you escape the city and adventure to the MacRitchie Reservoir. There were several people that decided to do the same, but it never felt crowded. Everyone was quite respectful as well. We decided to go to the MacRitchie Reservoir to see the TreeTop walk and wild monkeys roaming... More

Went for a trail run on a beautiful Monday morning, cool weather and friendly people all around. Worth the sweat going the tough nature trail through the nature reserve towards the 'treetop' bridge. Where else can you get fresh air, beautiful nature all for free. Warning the nature trail is not for those with bad knees.

Should be favourite with exercise enthusiastic and nature loving. Attraction is Suspension Bridge at Tree Top in the reservoir. It is a track f about 6 Kms from MacRitchie Reservoir Park entrance or about 4 Km from Venus Drive Par entrance. There are different trails with different degree of difficulties. I would suggest take the trail of 5.9 Kms to... More
