“Don't believe the distance signs”

MacRitchie Reservoir
Ranked #23 of 843 things to do in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 13, 2018

It's incredible that such a massive nature reserve is within the city of Singapore! Very easy to get to on the MRT, the signage on what is where is clear and easy to follow, BUT, the distances to the treetop walk are a little deceiving. Especially once you get ot the treetop walk and there is a 1.5-2km loop to get back to the ranger hut at the start of the walk, let alone the 5km back to the entrance to the reservoir. However, the distances aside, the walk was beautiful, the scenery was gorgeous and the wildlife was plentiful, monkeys, birds, water monitors.....

Always wanted to start exercising again. And my hubby decided to bring me there for a morning stroll. It has been ages since I last come back but the weather was excellent and the walk is enjoyable.

Great walking trail that includes a suspension bridge and lot's of steps to really give you a good work out as well as a quiet and peaceful walk in lovely surroundings. A great place for a morning walk but ensure that you take some water with you as it is very humid and you sweat a lot. There are also activities such as canoeing that you can try out, however, I tended just to go along for the walk which at a leisurely pace you can do in around 90 mins or so. Plenty of parking if you drive.

An interesting walk in the middle of the city. I saw my first water dragon here and it was huge! There is a nice canopy bridge to oversee the foliage and a look-out tour.
