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. « less

Thoroughly enjoyed, do carry lots of water/food as there are no shops. There a toilets and a water fountain but I saw this once in a few hours on the trail. Lots of monkeys and other animals. Was a little scared by all the 'beware of snakes' signs but we didn't see any. We got a taxi there and back... More

If you like nature and need to get away from the concrete jungle, I highly recommend MacRitchie Reservoir. This reservoir and park are centrally located and easy to get to. Either get in a taxi or take the Circle Line of the MRT to Caldecott. It is a short 10-15 minute walk from the MRT. There are several options for... More

If you are looking for a place to have a nice evening stroll or run, you can visit this nature park which also enclosed the Macritchie Reservoir. If you are up for a long walk, you can walk along the perimeter of the reservoir edge, along the broadwalk and some parts are nature trails. There is also a cafe and... More

I wanted to see some wildlife but am not a fan of animals in captivity so wished to avoid the Night Safari. My hostel (Tree In Lodge) recommended this as they knew I am a keen walker and they said that there was a high likelihood of seeing wild monkeys and monitor lizards - both of which I saw! The...

After a week of working non-stop in SGP, It was great to escape and do the MacRitchie Nature trail and the tree top walk. I must have had a good pace because I completed the trail in shorter time than indicated, but above all, I was at the start at 7h30am with plenty of water. I wouldn't dare try this... More

Went to the trail as i have decided to run a half marathon at the end of the year and wanted to challenge myself to some running in the natural environment as opposed to a tread mill. The trail is well marked and very well laid out. The gradients are challenging without being intimidating, the loops of the trail are... More

We were in no rush and spent over 3 hours on the trail encountering many friendly faces, monkeys, squirrels, tortoise, birds, one small snake and a spider as big as your hand. Such a pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore. A few tips....take plenty of water and wear shoes that are appropriate for the trail sections... More
