MacRitchie Reservoir is well worth a visit, if you can spare the time between all the other wonderful treats on offer in Singapore. Not quite the 'nature experience' of Pulau Ubin or Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, but it does provide a welcome break from the...More

Nice place to go if you want to spend one day outside of Singapore. Pretty far from the center but if you have time, I will suggest to visit it.

This is one of the rare few nature reserves in Singapore that offers a decent hiking trail and there are varied levels of difficulty that caters to the needs of all kinds of hikers.

We wandered around the MacRitchie Reservoir for a couple of hours and we really loved being in nature in the heart of the red dot. The reservoir is large and very serene. Its a great way to spend a perfect Saturday/Sunday outdoors.

Not really - whilst flat - its not the easiest place to get to from hotel areas of Singapore. Would recommend the botanical gardens and orchid gardens within.

It’s a suitable place for morning runs. Wonderfully peaceful and serene to jog or walk around the grounds. Always better in the morning or evening to avoid the scorching heat in this region.

The new "Learning Forest" at the Botannical Gardens (Tyersall Ave entrance) has a smaller suspension bridge and some rain forest. Can see similar scenery in around 20 mins walking time!
