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.

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.

If you are short of time or just want an easy stroll, I would suggest taking the Petai Boardwalk. It is newly renovated and the boardwalk is about 2 km long with view of the bluish green water of the reservoir and the huge trees...More

One of the best hiking trails in Singapore. Very easy to walk although the complete round is 13 kilometers. No need to be in fit to do it. The highlight of the trail is the Top Tree walk.

Coming to Macritchie for a little curry puff and a walk is always a joy. The best time to come is in the mid afternoon where the crowds have thinned.

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.
