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.

The water areas in this park increase the humidity beyond what you will already be experiencing in Singapore. However, if you have your walking shoes and a bottle of water, this is a great walking area. We were lucky enough to see a monkey with her baby and the most extraordinarily large millipede.

Me and my bf start trekking from MacRitchie Reservoir Park and then headed along to MacRitchie Nature Trail then passing along the Tree Top Walk. After that, we went to Venus Car Park and back. The trekking was awesome for both of us although it was tiresome we enjoyed so much. We would like to suggest to bring hat, sunscreen,... More

Not used to walking in 30+ degrees but MacRitchie is a beautiful park with an enormous lake and a sky walkway with canopy views. Take water!

Based on the reviews thought I'd be seeing monkey's but although it's free to enter the mrt is a distance away so you need to get a taxi. Lots of routes to go walking so wear proper attire. This place is used by lots of locals for exercise and the lake in the middle is used by lots of youngsters... More

The 12km trail around MacRitchie Reservoir (or 14km if including Tree Top Walk) is a good way to experience the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest. A good starting point is the Mushroom Cafe at the southeastern corner of MacRitchie Reservoir, which is easily accessible by bus or car and has toilets, showers and lockers (for small items only)....

Anyone who has hopped across different malls in Singapore will be pleasantly surprised to visit MacRitchie Nature Trail. Remember to carry bottles of water and a towel to avoid dehydration due to walking through the trail. Great place for a family outing!!!

Good place to visit if you're looking for a long hike! You can see monkeys here roaming free and swimming in the lake too. Keep your belongings close as they will try to steal anything left on the floor!!!

Everything about this nature trail is exquisite. The bridge is breathtaking and the monkeys are adorable. Just be careful with your stuff because they will take it!
