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.

Excellent walk

Excellent walk ! The paths are well maintained and easy to navigate. It was not to warm as the paths are well shaded. Do wear good walking shoes and bring enough drinking water.

Went birdwatching with my friend who is Singapore-based. The trail was a bit busy with early morning joggers. Enjoyed the hike and got me some photos of birds.

Me and friend decided to try walking MacRitchie Nature Trail and the main goal is the Bridge as we saw the picture shared online which is so pretty! I initially thought that it will be very hot but surprisingly, It was not that hot as the nature shades almost the whole trail! The road is a llittle bumpy but not... More

We were in Singapore with our 5 yr old so wanted to do a small trek. Started the trail from Venus car park, went all the way to treetop walk. After the treetop, we went to the Jelutong tower and then walked back to the Venus car park area. The total trek was around 8km and we finished it leisurely... More

Amazing patches of green next to a water reservoir with a jogging track to boot! It's amazing how Singapore has managed to create many such 'spaces' serving as 'virtual lungs' to an otherwise upward bound office & residential concrete jungle!! Great place to go either with family and kids for long cycling rides & frisbee/boomerang play or for a decent... More

This is the other side of Singapore, that some tourists don't get to see - but it is just as amazing and beautiful as the modern Singapore. We took the taxi to the nature trail from the Singapore Botanical Gardens - it is a good plan to do both the same day of you can. We were unsure we were... More

It's a pretty good walk from the car park to the canopy walk but it's enjoyable on a nice day. The views are lovely and there's a monkey or two to keep you going.

Great breath of fresh air from hustle and bustle. Tree top views are worth walk. If you are pushed for time you could start at the Venus Drive carpark. This would halve the walking time I'd say. Drink bottle is a must.
