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.

Our fav hangout

Fantastic place to walk off Clarke and Robertsons Quay drink and food explosion :) In some places it's like walking in the jungle. Superb, and interesting wild life. Saw monkeys and a 4 foot lizard thing (it was impressive!) an eagle and many other bits and pieces. Wear light clothing, it's hot but enjoyable.

It's a great place in the city where you can unwind and stretch. Numerous trails are designed to suit one's preference. we undertook the 'Tree Top' trail and enjoyed the walk thoroughly. Was great being able to walk and be close to Nature. The highlight of this trail is crossing the one-way bridge ontop of trees. It's an easy walk... More

Great tree top walk. Possible for running around the Macritchie reservoir (5.4 or 12km trail). Go early morning to see real snakes, monkeys, birds, squirels, etc.

This was a delightful walk but you must be fit to do the whole way We did a short walk and came back along the boardwalk. We saw the monkeys and a large monitor lizard swam along beside us. A friendly turtle came to see what we are doing and posed for a photo. It was peaceful away from the... More

The 11km trail around the reservoir is lovely. You can take your time and stop off at the little huts dotted along the way. You don't have to go all the way round but if you can make it to the 5km mark, the treetop walk along a suspension bridge above the jungle canopy is fantastic and gives lovely views... More

I really wanted to see monkeys in their natural habitat. I read a review about this place on trip advisor. It was hard to reach. We went to another reserve which was closed for upgrading. We asked a jogger about this one and he said we need a taxi to get there as we had come on the train. Then... More

Getting tired of the urban jungle? Then try this trail, for a nature lover like me, this place is heaven! It will take you 3 to 4 hours to try the trails, we started at Venus drive, followed the trail going to Treetop walk to Jelutong Tower, Golf Link, Chemperai trail, Lonie trail and ended up at MacRitchie Reservoir Park....

The MacRitchie Trails have so much to offer! Have visited it many times during morning and late afternoon. Certainly a nature beauty within a city!

Just be weary of the cheeky monkeys. We spent about half an hour there just to see the monkeys and the scenery. Just watch those monkeys. Anyone who was carrying a plastic bag with anything in it got harassed by the monkeys who eventually would steal the bag or drink and take off with it. Apart from that, quite a... More
