A good workout and excellent way to enjoy a different perspective of Singapore by taking a walk round the Reservior. There are various routes with the longest about 12 km. There is a suspension bridge if you take the Tree Top walk for a good birds eye view of Reserviour.

Nice and pleasant experience into one of the remaining forests in sg. Do expect what nature has in stall for you such as insects and such. Be wary of the monkeys as they may get quite aggressive.

What a lovely place to go for a walk. It can be a long walk and you can get lost, but its easy to get back on track. Take a picnic and enjoy eating around the reservoir.

great 14km trail walk. we started from eastern end of the reservoir near St. Theresa's home around 9am, waling counterclock-wise, and finished at the mushroom cafe around 2pm. easy walking trail most of the time. but the section up to the treetop walk was very steep. would be nicer if we start earlier as it was around midday when we...

MacRitchie Reservoir is well known as a jogging/hiking trial among locals for that coveted breath of fresh air and the experience to run within a forest (No running in Botanic gardens doesn't count as a forest...LOL). Entrance is free and could park at the nearby carpark if you drove here. Do remember to put on your sun block and mosquito... More

My friends took me to MacRitchie on Saturday, and it was perfect! Right in the middle of the town, accessible by MRT. Yet it was really quite and clean. The trail was well organized and managed.

Singapore is an urban city, and there's very little trails around the heart of the city and even most of the outskirts. MacRitchie Reservoir is one of the best trails in Singapore that you can get which is free and where you can enjoy with friends and family. They offer kayaking around the reservoir, but that depends on the weather.... More

This is a beautiful park about 20mins from orchard road area. Track is 11km around if you want to do the tree top walk. Definitely worth it. Just make sure you dress for the walk, it's rocky and can be slippery if it's been raining. And you will sweat. A lot. There are monkeys and I have seen a few... More

I've been here about three or four times now, and each time has been a great experience. The sheer amount of trails that you can explore is fantastic. I would recommend the Tree Top Walk as a great place to either exercise or take a family outing. It is a long walk, though, so I might not recommend it for... More
