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.

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!

I started at the visitor centre (where the teriyaki chicken is delicious by the way) and took the yellow track to the tree tops bridge. Got to see some monkeys along the way including some baby ones playing in the water. After the bridge I followed the red path past the golf course to complete a loop of the reservoir.... More

Excellent activity out of the busy city. Wild monkeys, and crazy suspension bridge. Great for exercise. Recommend taking drink bottle and towel. There are toilets and water for drinking. You will finish the track drenched in sweat. About 7km. Ran the first section and walked the rest, approx 1.5hr.

Gorgeously beautiful. Enchanting forest walks. Would be even more wonderful when it's quieter with fewer people...and only the sounds and sights of nature and her wonders. Definitely my best day in Singapore. Hiking is one of the activities i truly enjoy doing solo, as it allows me to just absorb.. and BE.

It's a great place for family walk and bonding. The route to the tree top walk is long but worth it. Even though the route leading up to it is quite a challenging slope, the view on top of the tree top walk is fantastic and one will not regrets even after the long and tiring walk. Must go and...

Wonderful place to see different plants and animals, including monkeys. Just be careful where you're walking because snakes have been spotted here. The treetop walk has a stunning view of the forest.
