Description: A short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie...
A short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie Reservoir, part of Singapore’s water catchment system that captures rain water to help supply the island’s growing population. Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor’s center featuring a café, restrooms and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250-meter suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the seven-kilometer Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water.

Super duper trail! I love to see the greens from the height. This is a very nice trail suitable for everyone who love nature. It's hot ( its Singapore after all) but if you are well hydrated you'll be just fine!

Urbanisation of Singapore is increasing daily. MacRitchie offers the chance to escape back to the tropical jungle and get well off the beaten track.

A convenient tranquil spot just a couple of minutes walk from the nearest MRT station and a short drive from the surrounding heartlands. Was greeted by a group of monkeys as we entered the trail. Then spotted a monitor lizard basking lazily in the sun on a piece of log. Along the way through the trail you may encounter more... More

Turtles in the lake. cheeky monkeys running around in groups (watch out if you are wearing only open sandals), take a bottle of water as it is a long walk around the perimeter of the lake. Fish swimming and ca n sit and watch them on one of the wooden platforms. I got here by one of the limited buses... More

Very good walk around MacRitchie reservoir. Its about 10km with monkeys and lots of birdlife. Temperature was 32 and humid, so ended up pretty dry despite having 1 litre of water.

This is a large park built around a lake, right in the middle of the city. Paths are well laid out, range from easy to fairly difficult. If you like nature, you'll love it. I certainly did - walked the 10km trail. If you go.. - Start early in the morning. The nearest MRT station is less than a half... More

If you are looking for fresh air and a little challenge then come on down to macritchie to give your health a bit of a boost. Do it in the morning and you can breathe the difference in the quality of the air once your on the trails.

My friend and I did the 11km walk yesterday and wow it was sweaty but great. We saw monkeys and this massive lizards, it was surreal. We were so impressed with ourselves after we had completed it. I can't believe this place in a few minutes away from the city. It's lovely, just make sure you take lots of water... More
