This Reservoir makes for a very enjoyable outing. I walked/ran around the whole reservoir 11km and it took me 3hours. I did stop to take photos a fair bit. I wouldn't recommend walking the whole track if you are on vacation as it leaves you pretty exhausted for the rest of the day. There are signs with maps the whole... More

This is a terrific place to explore and view beautiful flora, lakes and wildlife. Bring mosquito spray inasmuch as Zika is in Singapore. I arrived via rented motorcycle but you may need a taxi or bus to the area. It's great to see the "outback" of this beautiful country!

We went there for Pokemon hunting. Loads of Magikap! Aside from that, it was quite a walk. We walked over 25 thousand steps that day!

This is a beautiful idyllic place to visit when in Singapore. It is accessible by bus or taxi. There is a small cafe there and toilets/showers too if needed. The loop around the reservoir is around 10km and under tree cover for most of the way - good for runners and walkers alike. There is a small ranger station halfway... More

MacRitchie Reservoir is a great place for the whole family. There are loads of walking paths, a restaurant and possibility to go kayaking. It really doesn't feel like you are in the middle of the city!

It was a decent hike for the family. Not as difficult as its website claims but distance-wise it is quite decent. Need to bring lots of water and change of clothes. In spite of the shades, it can still get quite warm and sticky after a while. Need to beware of the wild monkeys as they can creep out of... More

The one-way only tree top canopy walk was remarkable - avoid bringing food and plastic bag with you, as the monkeys around can notice this and come to you making too much disturbance.

This is a really great walk. You can decide which trail you want to do in advance based on your fitness. We did the 11km walk to the tree top walk and back. It is mostly shaded but some sections are very open and sunny so wear sunnie, hat and suncream. Also put on aeroguard. Bring a bottle of water.... More
