We did the 12km loop around the reservior, it is so beautiful and peaceful, an easy flat walk which is clearly signposted. You would never know you were in the middle of a busy city, surrounded by deep green forest, monkeys and birds everywhere. They even have clean toilets and chilled water fountains available on the way to the treetop... More

This was a surprise in tiny Singapore. One has a real sense of space and being in a wilderness. The walk was great, especially the tree bridge walk. All free.

Well worth a visit, wonderful trek. It will require a reasonable level of fitness to make the full 10ish k's walk.Sore knees or hips at the start could be a mistake. Please take plenty of water as there is only one drinking fountain/toilet stop on the way around. We are in our fifties and took four hours to complete the... More

The long boardwalks around the lake are great to run on. There are no safety rails, so you should be careful

Fab place to get some exercise and see some local wildlife. We love bumping in to the local monkeys and seeing beautiful lizards and snakes.

Great place to go for a stroll. Tree top walk is a must. Recommend packing an umbrella, water and some munchies to keep you from hunger,thirst and rain. Highly recommended.

A very different way to enjoy Singapore. You cannot even imagine that something like that is in the middle of this modern city. Pure jungle, with monkeys, lizards and elephants and tigers (OK, I am just overexcited now...). Jokes aside, real nature in an urban landscape like Singapore, an oasis, a place to be lost for a while and think... More

There's also a cafe called The Mushroom Cafe which serves local dishes and fried finger foods. - See more at: http://frenzeelo.blogspot.sg/2012/05/macritchie-reservoir.html#sthash.JC6zPswe.dpuf and switch to bus #74 or #157 along Bukit Timah Road. Both buses will take you straight to the bus-stop mentioned by BornVivant at the entrance to the park. do not enter when it's going to rain and please... More

MacRitchie is an amazing place for an active weekend - its lush green surroundings and a beautiful lake make it an ideal place for joggers, painters and even for picnics. There are a couple of hiking trails which are pretty good and one can also go Kayaking (just S$15 bucks for an hour!). Besides this - the main attraction at... More

The boardwalks for a pleasant stroll around the resevoir. The tracks seemed rather dull from a nature point of view and many joggers going past - it depends what you are after. We like to see the wildlife so the boardwalks were a perfect option for us for a couple of hours. Many monkeys, water monitors, lizards and terrapin's to... More
