We took a little while to figure out where an entrance to the reservoir was but we ended finding a trail that lead us in the reservoir. It was a very humid day for the 11km walk. Make sure you bring the following items: big bottle of water, mozzie repellent and good comfy shoes. We went through the treetop walk... More

Bring your comfy shoes and water bottle, very pleasant walk around the circuit and over a suspension bridge. Walk takes about 4/5 hours, a little exhausted by the end of the walk, but well worth the effort. Not many birds but plenty of monkeys to see.

if this is you don't have much time in Singapore and it's your first time here Macritchie probably isn't a priority. The treetop walk is a great free attraction but you do have to walk about 4km to get there and the entire loop is 11km and takes about 3.5-4hrs to complete. Also be aware the treetop walk is closed... More

The reservoir is located close to the central part if Singapore, near Toa Payoh and Thomson area. People usually come here in the mornings and evenings when its cooler, for walks for runs. You can enjoy walks along the broadwalks along the reservoir edge, or take a hike/ run/ cycle through nature trails through the nature reserve. Along the way,... More

I usually do the 11km route around the lake. It is most of the time under the trees so shadowy and not too hot. i like to go running there, some people go there for a walk but it's a bit long for me to take my young kid there. The tree top walk is really worth it though.

Be prepared to walk and be in touch with nature. Good structure in rangers point. Lots of monkeys! Nature in the middle of skyscrapers and concrete jungle. Don't feed the monkeys!

This place use to be and still is lovers hangout. But now more of a jogging track with nice bird catching view and nature. Lots of planning and thoughts were put into this place. There is hiking, Water sports, Bird watching, exercise and lots of monkeys. (Go to this link: https://www.nparks.gov.sg/gardens-parks-and-nature/parks-and-nature-reserves/macritchie-reservoir-park)
