“Good relaxation for all ages.”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Good place to really relax and bring yourself closer to mother nature... But do refrain from feeding the wild monkeys as they will bother you if you feed... lol

See the city type of reservoir and take a stroll there. Easy to get there from the city and enjoy the nature. Early morning nice!

“Mac Ritchi - A jogger's paradise”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

MacRitchie is one of those places in Singapore that I wish to go again and again. A large reservoir surrounded by plenty of trees and greenery and a long, never ending trail to walk through the forest is like a treasure box, more you explore, the more you get.
Best to visit on non-sunny days geared with sports shoes, water bottle sun glasses and a camera to capture the beautiful scenery.
Arriving at Macritchie, you'll be welcomed by lots of monkeys, so ensure that your food and other valuable items are tucked inside your bag.

“A little piece of nature in the big city”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This was by far our favorite attraction in Singapore. A very easy 5 - 10k walk depending on the route you take. We choose to make our way to the TreeTop walk, a high suspension bridge filled with monkeys and incredible views.

Useful tips:
- Avoid bringing plastic bags as it excites the monkeys and although they are cute they are also aggressive in this area
- Wear bug spray
- Bring lots of water, its really humid and sweating is part of the deal

“Interesting Attraction for Small Children - Natural Paradise in a Big City”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

We went for a morning walk with our grand children in MacRitchie Reservoir. The children love this place - it's got everything: lovely nature trails, monkeys, tree top walk, lakes full of fish, great species of bamboo and other rain forest trees. It is a favourite place for photographers searching for shots of butterflies etc. A must visit when you want a rest from all the shopping centre activities. A very relaxing place.

Early morning is the best time to walk in this park as walking in Singapore can be a bit hot later in the day. This pathways have lots of shade and interesting things to see and enjoy.
