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.

It took us about 90 mins from base to the treetop walk. All in all very good exercise. We even brought our own sandwiches in a picnic basket and one of our friends had his year-old toddler strapped to his chest - admittedly not very easy to carry around but very doable if you're up for a physical challenge.

It's interesting to be able to escape the busy city and walk in a quiet and leafy path, lots of places to stop off and have a coffee and rest.

My favourite spots in Singapore for a jog and to be surrounded by nature. The full walk around the reservior can get a quite strenous hence please chose the right hike trail prior to the start as getting back may be challenging !

The MacRitchie Reservoir is definitely one of my favorite destinations in Singapore for outdoor activities. I love the 14 km trail which leads you through rainforest, to tree top walks and along the lake. Keep you eyes open and spot lizards, snakes, spiders, trurtles and, of course, monkeys.

This is a great but very approachable hike coming to about 11km in total with random bits of surprising gradient and some lovely changes of scene and highlights including the forest bridge and a cruisey path around the edge of SICC golf course. Should be a top 10 outdoor activity for Singapore

A lovely walk in the forest around MacRitchie Reservoir along a well made path that is such a contrast to the rest of built up Singapore. A lovely way to unwind and stretch your legs.

This area is a great contrast to the Singapore cityscape, and at times in the forest you do seem to be a long way from the hustle and bustle. We walked the circular, well signposted, path which took in the Treetop Walk - it took us a bit over 4 hours at a fairly leisurely pace. We saw some amazing... More
