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.

If you want a break from the city, make your way to McRitchie (via regular buses or taxi easy from city centre) You can have a short stroll or opt for a long 9k hike so pack sensibly either way - bring plenty of water and some refreshments (engergy bars good idea) but pack them safely or the monkeys will...

We walked an abbreviated section of the walk one morning and were amazed at how many animals we saw even though there were lots of people on the trail. Beautiful foliage and all of this with in minutes of downtown Singapore.

Great reservoir, great views, sounds and sensations. The trail is correctly preserved, clean, clearly signed and confortable to walk, flat trail, maybe hard part with the stairs before the bridge, but recommended to do.

Great place to walk, jog, chit-chat, etc. Set in the nature reserve area, it is fiercely protected by those who loves nature in Singapore, where any suggestion of re-development is opposed strongly, thus kept its true beauty. Don't miss the "Tree Top Walk", walking through a short bridge over the canopy of tropical rain forest, sure to amaze!

There are many trails around the MacRitchie Reservoir - one will bring you to the Tree Top Bridge. It is a very lush and green experience, best done on weekdays since there are no crowds. Remember to bring water since it will be a very hot hike through the rainforest and around the lake.

It is one of the exhausting but exciting nature trail in the MacRitchie Reservoir and the Tree-Top Walk was very awesome experience and one can practically see the whole MacRitchie Reservoir at one view. The greenery experience is one that can never forget. You can choose to go a shorter nature trail (around 2.5km) or longer trail (around 6.8km). The... More

I will come back here whenever I am in Singapore. The walk here or your journey within the nature trail can both de-stress you physically and mentally. The trail will take you closer to nature. The walk itself going to the HSBC bridge will take more than an hour but I can guarantee you that every step inside is worth... More

Really enjoyable walk. You could go as a group, family or even solo. So much to take in with the sights and scene. One of my highlights when visiting Singapore.

If you're looking for a nature trail and trek that ends in a treetop bridge with some great views, this is the place for you! It's something outside of what you would usually expect in Singapore. Of course, it is a bit of a trek. But still, no admission fee, and it's just a nice stroll in nature.
