This is a 12km walk. Theres a small cafe with a few snacks near the taxi drop off point but other than that nowhere to replenish refreshments so be sure to take plenty of water with you. Most of the walk is shaded but there are parts that are exposed to the sun so sun block is advised. If your... More

Not just because it's walking distance from where I am staying (at least for me). It's a place to enjoy the greenery, breeze and away from the bustle and hassle.

Tree top walk, go for your hike-cum-run, canoeing, brisk walking, fishing, watching the sunset... anything you wish to do, this place is a lovely area to just escape for a while from a mad rushing world, just at the peripheries of the reservoir.

Hope you love monkeys ,they live there and run wild. The walk round the reservoir is a long walk in the heat ,so remember to take water. Easy to get there on the bus.

A large reservoir featuring a park and nature reserve, with numerous trails of varying lengths up to 11km. We started our walk by the main entrance and chose the Petai Trail which is about 3km in length, and consists of a raised broadwalk along the waters edge. Along the way we saw groups of monkeys, lizards, and numerous varieties of... More

Brilliant day out. Did the 11k walk around the resourvior and we had the best time ever. So much to see. Monkeys in their natural habitat. Monitor Lizards and other creepy crawlies. Also did the Tree Top suspension bridge walk as well and it was well worth it. Set off in 35 degrees sunshine and finished it in in torrential... More

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.
