It is a nice place to relax, especially in the early morning or evening when it is not too hot in sunny Singapore. The active one can either jog, run or take a slow walk in the many trails in the park.

I’ve been to MacRitchie many! Every time again I realise how amazing the park is. Great for running (big lap 10.5km) or hiking around.

Escape the hustle of the city to this reservoir with a nature trail, lake and a TreeTop walk. Various outdoor activities like canoeing.

The reservoir felt serene and quiet. Not very crowded when we visited. Lovely birds and monkey around the area. Must go again.

Wonderful natural attraction and I love the jogging trail which cuts through the forest. Female joggers might want to bring a friend along though.

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.
