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.

“Enjoy the tree tops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

When you need a little break from daily hustle, do check out MacRitchie Trial. It's isolated from the mainland and the trials there are good. Do not forget to take lots of water while going there.

“Great bit of nature & exercise in secluded area of big city life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Love this place. I frequently am in Singapore on business and try to sneak off for the Sky Bridge loop on a jog/walk trip (~1 hour 35 minutes) for me.

Trails are nice and wide, the hustle and bustle noises of big city are not existent and provides great escape.

Take lots of water as it is always hot and humid and note that if you tie in the sky bridge loop you best do the trail route counter-clockwise as the sky bridge is a one way.

“Really enjoyed the Tree Tops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

When you need a break from the city, make your way to the MacRitchie Trail. You will be surprised by the serenity and feel of isolation. It is a real gem. As a native North American, I especially enjoyed seeing monkeys and monitor lizards!! Wear a sturdy pair of shoes, take some water, and make the effort to walk the Tree Tops route. You will not be disappointed.

“Last bit of rain forest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

As one of the last bits of primary rain forest this is a haven in singapore. various trails from 3-11km. There is also a tree top walk. If you like a trail run the 11k circular route is to be reccomended. Lots of wildlife to see but take your own water.

“Excellent choice for morning walks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

The natural rainforest reserve in Singapore, located in the central northern part of the island. Several walking trails for easy morning walks along boardwalks, which would take about an hour or so. Can also choose to walk along jungle paths. Full trail is about 12km, walking would take about 2 and a half hours depending on individual pace. Not easy to lose one's way with many well-placed signboards. Good way to spend time in the nature, either alone or with friends or family.
