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.

It is one of the rare places to enjoy nature walks in Singapore. You truly feel isolated from the big city and enjoy the nature.

It's hot and the trail is longer than you think. Set aside 3-4 hours for a slow go around and get really close to nature. 2 hours or less are for the brisk walkers and runners. Try not to be too annoyed at the loud...More

If you have at least 2 hours to explore such lush green area just a few miles from the city, then you should really visit McRitchie. You will see monitor lizards sunning on the grass, take a lovely walk in vast greenery with the lake...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.
