Unbeknown to most people in Singapore we actually have plenty of places to go with lots of greenery and peaceful atmosphere. MacRitchie is probably the most commercial of the reservoirs here (apart from the Marina now of course) but is still peaceful and a nice place to go for a walk. Plenty of boardwalks, forrest tracks, loads of monkeys and... More

This is Singapore's first reservoir built in late 1860s. It has since been expanded twice to cater to the growing demand if water on the city. The park is smack in the centre of the city state Singapore and is a huge nature reserve with a beautiful lake in middle. Last great place for family outing with kids or friends... More

Need to get here by train or taxi but well worth the visit. Saw lots of wildlife, and lovely gardens. A relaxing place to visit and a must if you have the time

A beautiful array of flowers from all over the world. If you like photography you will love this attraction. You just amble through the flower done and enjoy the colour and splender

The place is difficult to get to and nobody seems to know where the entrance is - if you must go, take a taxi. While the reservoir itself is pretty, the nature walks are awful: very, very humid with terrible paths. There is nowhere to get water,go to the toilet or even and a lack of seating to boot. Even...

I was amazed that it was possible to find peace and solitude in the heart of Singapore. There were a few monkeys on the track. The HSBC canopy walk is great. Best to take water and a picnic and pace yourself and spend a whole day walking around the reservoir, but if you haven't the time, there are shorter waslks.

MacRitchie Reservoir Park is pretty much in the centre of the island and, in many ways, plays a central role in the daily lives of Singaporeans. Water is a constant concern at the local level as the city state consumes far more than it is able to produce. A vast amount of the water that is consumed or used on... More
