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.

Lovely big open environment without too many people or commercial attractions. Good for short visits or the whole day. Great for picnics. Great for calm.

Can easily spend a whole day here. Great hiking tracks. I'd go early in the morning or late in the afternoon as the sun can be too hot in the middle of the day. Perfect on a cloudy day though. Beginner to advance level tracks.

If you want to explore some hidden gems of Singapore, then this place is for you. MacRitchie is one bus ride away from the city (this place is still being developed so it is unreachable by train). The signage is not that obvious but you...More

Should you wish to feel the Old Singapore Spirit and walk in a safe environment this nature trail around lakes (reservoirs) is the perfect getaway. However, beware of the agressive monkeys on the tree top bridge.

Large nature reserve with good walks and a tree-top-bridge. Easy to reach with bus, quite popular and many animals/birds to see.

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.
