A short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie Reservoir, part of Singapore’s water catchment system that captures rain water to help supply the island’s growing population. Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor’s center featuring a café, restrooms and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250-meter suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the seven-kilometer Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water.

We did the tree top trail at MacRitchie. This is a great time if you like the outdoors, don't mind sweating profusely, and can manage a ton of stairs. You get to see monkeys close up--so be prepared by keeping all of your belongings zipped up in your bag--they will steal anything they can get their hands on and they... More

I've been here twice only during afternoon as i'd like to avoid the heat of the sun. There's a food centre inside and there are vending machines that sells drinks scattered through the park. There's also a shower area and drinking fountains and lockers. So this is quite good if you want to jog without the burden of heavy bags... More

Started from MacRitchie and exited from Venus carpark. Total distance was 12km. Was drizzling but still enjoyable. Just take extra care from slipping. Too bad the suspension bridge was a tad too short. Bridge infested with monkeys and they will tuck at your bags ferociously. Just try to keep a safety distance from them. Overall was a good outing and... More

The trail has points that allow hikers to U-Turn back on another parallel route. Mostly Clay, Gravel & Timber Slat Pavements. Textures for surfaces vary greatly and a watchful eye will prevent a nasty sprain. Uneven ground and Wet slippery surfaces are the most problematic, but that is what makes it more 'authentic'. The humidity can weaken the resolve of... More

If you spend 6-8 hours waking through the forests, you can walk as far as the bukit timah nature reserve! Worth a walk if you have time. In the middle of the reservoir there are the remnants of a Shinto japanese temple built during WWII and destroyed at its end.

It was great to get away from the city for a while and walk the trails. The bridge is great and the trails aren't too crowded. Be sure to take plenty of water and wear sunscreen!

MacRitchie Nature Trail feels like being hundreds of miles away from the bay city center. The trails takes you through secondary growth rainforest and to the tree top bridge. A longer loop of about 12 kilometres take you around the reservoir. it is a wonderful place for a run or a hike. There are parking facilities and a coffee shop... More

I was just having my evening walk in a new neighborhood, without knowing anything about this beautiful place. Not only my stressful thought has gone, but I had a lot of fun enjoying the beautiful view and taking pictures of the macaques too! If you love animals and want to take picture as close as you can, always be alert... More
