Overview

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 trails are very rugged! Nothing much is paved, and it’s mostly dirt paths so wear comfortable footwear. I also recommend bringing enough water as water points are rare - in fact I only know of one that’s located halfway through. Mind you, the reserve...More

We started the 11km walk in the blazing sun and ended it completely soaked through after a huge storm hit while we were high above the forest on the tree walk. It is a beautiful place very easily accessible on public transport. We saw lots...More

Lovely easy trails through the jungle, on boardwalk by the reservoir and in the treetops. Yummy curry puffs and fresh orange juice at the Mushroom cafe near the main entrance. Monkeys, water monitor lizards, turtles, butterflies and incredible trees.

My husband and I loved this experience. However, pick your day and take plenty of water. It was quite humid. We walked about 11kms around the reservoir and over the treetop walk. Saw squirrels, lots of monkeys, and monitor lizards, as well as plenty of...More

If you have good stamina and have a friend/partner that shares the same trekking hobby, don't miss this place. Thoroughly enjoy every corner that we ventured. Photo enthusiast may find many money shots.

Took a cab to the entrance of the park from Raffle City and it was only 12 Sing dollars and about 13 minutes. I recommend starting the trail counter-clockwise so you’ll get to the Tree Top Bridge at the beginning and since it's a one-way...More

I would happily take a baby. No aggressive monkeys but if you are where monkeys might be then keep food hidden. We had a picnic on the trail.

It is a nature trail, not a road. So no, it is not lit with laterns. And it is not a smooth trail, rather rugged. Not recommendable after dark.
