There is over 10 km of walk around the reservoir and through the jungle. It took us a good afternoon to di the whole thing. There are places to sit in the shade or from the rain at a couple of points in the loop. It is probably better to go when cloudy or nt at noon - but I... More

MacRitchie and the connected forest trails are perhaps one of the most beautiful walks in Singapore. Do try to time your visit to the pre-dawn hours or mid-day to avoid the crowds. Having to dodge corporate warrior speedwalkers and geriatric fixtures can take away from the joy of taking in the sights and sounds of the forest. Arriving before the... More

This is a huge reservoir with great natural areas that you can walk around. A lot of wildlife, from small mammals (squirrels in the trees) and many species of butterflies and dragonflies, as well as monitor lizards and huge numbers of birds. Lots of different trees some flowering. Singapore has some nice natural spots considering it is a huge city... More

Great place to run for trail running enthusiasts - I highly recommend the HSBS Tree Tops walk which is along a trail in MacRitchie.

We go walking through here regularly. Really nice walk, not very demanding but very peaceful. Don't feed the monkeys

The sizeable MacRItchie Reservoir is Singapore's oldest reservoir and is now the location for a number of hiking and nature trails. It is easy to reach by bus and, once there, everything is neatly signposted. I went with a friend on a Sunday afternoon and had a very pleasant walk beside the water and through the woodland away from the... More

For the lovers of tracking it is a heaven . The feeling of being in the countryside as you enter here will you in awe . The sheer scale of the landscape is mind blowing . Not for a tourist in hurry . If you crave for a serious tracking this is an invitation . Good walking shoes .
