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.

On our first morning in Singapore we decided to have a walk here and to go across the treetop bridge. As expected it was incredibly hot but was worth every minute. It was amazing to be on the bridge and look out over the trees...More

MacRitchie Nature Trail is a great way to be away from the city life of Singapore and to feel some fresh air

I love this trail! It is like a jungle in the middle of the city. The hike to TreeTop Walk is very descent, it is not too hot this time of the year.

After visiting the overtly impressive and much lauded Gardens by the Bay, I wasn't sure any of Singapore's other parks would have the ability to compete, but the rugged MacRitchie Nature Trail, nestled somewhat incongruously in the middle of a bustling urban area, showed me...More

Yes trail is open on Monday but not the treetop section. You can easily do the trail and skip that section. Hope this helps and was fast enough.

Hi, there are no gates as such to the reserve but note that the tree top walk itself is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9am to 5pm (830am on weekends) and last entry to the bridge itself is 445pm. It can get quite dark with... More

There are a few routes, so time varies. My suggestion is to give ample time, if you are going there for the first time. Next, there would be light showers in the early morning / late afternoon, from mid-Mar till probably... More
