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.

There are numerous websites in Singapore showing maps of the trails (such as National Parks website). The trails are well marked and singapore is really too small to get very lost. About 15 minutes walk and you will almost forget you are in suburban Singapore....More

Mention MacRitchie to any Singaporean and the talk will certainly turn to cross-country runs, nature trails and the TreeTop Walk. Anchored by Singapore’s largest reservoir - part of a water catchment system that captures rain water - the park and nature reserve at the very...More

Start early and bring mosquito repellant, wear comfortable clothes with runners and bring water! its a nice stroll around the park but beware of which paths you take as you could end up walking a lot further than you intended.

Took the opportunity to go hiking along the nature trail this morning as part of a longer hike to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. It's about as good as you get in Singapore, but unfortunately that means it also gets quite busy. Once you get off...More

Start early for the Tree Top walk and choose the park entrance closest to the suspended walkway. Wear trainers, and mosquito repellent, take water to keep hydrated. We saw monkeys, birds and had a great time.
