“One of my favourite places in Singapore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A fantastic place to escape to hustle bustle of the city! Great for an early morning walk or run. Almost certain to see monkeys along the way. 10.8km all the way around. 5km to the treetop walk.

“Lovely nature reserve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This lovely nature reserve is right in the middle of Singapore and well connected by public transport. You should allow yourself a min of 1 hour, but you can easily spend 2 hours (walk to end of boardwalk and return), 3 hours (walk to tree-top trail and loop back) or 4 hours (walk to Bukit Timah). The walking trails are well marked and easy to traverse, but a min level of fitness is expected.

“macRitchie Reservoir”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Recent renovations and additions have made this park truly relaxing. Great place to wind-down after a busy day. Kids love it. Walk around the park is great. Weekends very crowded. Good spot for outdoor activities. Be cautious of monkeys. Cycling and fishing recommended.

“A must-go for runners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is a great place for runners and trekkers (for safety, just make sure that you are not running alone). You can canoe at MacRitchie Reservoir too. There is a tree-top walk at this place too.

Cafe and bathing facilities are also available here.

Do bring along your insect repellent as there are mosquitoes.
