Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“Nature in the City”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were delighted to find this beautiful rainforest so close to the city and went for a run and lunch there. It was easy to find some nice quiet walks away from the crowds and catch a glimpse of the local monkeys.

“A tranquil getaway in the heart of the city”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

i have been there a few times, taking my son trekking during his school holidays. it was surprisingly beautiful and i was so thankful to have a piece of lush greenery and a sanctum of tranquility right in the heart of our loud, crowded bustling city!
the macritchie tree-tops is a gem! it may not be calypso bridge or other famous bridges, yet it does not disappoint either.

“Monkeys, Lizards and more!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

MacRitchie is a truly tranquil and refreshing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. Walk along the boardwalk and watch the still lake, complete with terrapins and tortoises. Make sure you keep your bag closed so as not to encourage the monkeys- they can be pretty inquisitive! Keep an eye out for the monitor lizards and tropical birds. A great way to enjoy the tropical weather.

“great to get into the jungle without the noise of Singapore”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

yes it is hot like hell and full of bugs, but it is a great work out. the long trail which takes you to the tree top walk is great two hours. And the area near the reservoir is really nice too.

“Inspiring walking trail”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

There are several walking trails of varying distances and panorama. One takes you across a golf course, another on boardwalk. The forest trails are perfect for early morning walks/runs. Clean. Ready access to toilets. There is a small coffee shop too.
