Wonderful running trail with good eatery at very reasonable prices. There are both lockers and showers. For running it is recommended to come during the week, as weekends tend to be rather crowded with families and groups of walkers.

This place is the perfect place to go for a day hike with your friends. We took with us some food and lots of water. There's plenty of routes you can take and the hike will average about 10 kms. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT forget the Tree-Top Walk.

It was amazing to walk through this nature reserve. It took us about three hours to walk the 11km. The path was nice and varying. We saw monkeys, lizards, fishes, birds,.. There's a ranger station where you can refill your water bottle for free! On Monday the restaurant and the chain bridge are closed, so you should bring water and... More

Great spot for a morning hike! Bring lots of water and snacks. Sometimes it can be hard to get a taxi when you want to leave the Park. Try to use an app to book or you might even have to walk out to the closest major street to hail a taxi. Be sure to make it all the way... More

A big reservoir saving raw water for processing. Nice to stroll through the various points of interest. Saw lots of tortoise and fishes in the water. Playful monkeys all around.

A great place to walk on a fine evening. Main drawback from a tourist's viewpoint is distance from most hotels. There is a bus service, but the best way to get there is by taxi.

When I was having my basic training at the Old Police Academy those days, we used to jog here on alternate weekdays. It was part of our regimental training to improve our stamina and physique. It was perspiration and disciplined training as a group. The place was serene and the air in the natural trail was fresh but I did... More
