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.

Went on a stroll at the TreeTop walk trail with the dad. Appreciate that the paths were well marked and literally requires minimal guidance. Do note though, at first I thought entering by the Venus Drive carpark would allow us access to the shorter green...More

The famous monkeys were all around us as we arrived. Fun to watch, especially the mums carrying their babies but hold tight to your bags. We followed the path to the treetop walk. Quite a trek through jungle like forest. Interesting to see how the...More

I have enjoyed morning jogs around MacRitchie for a couple of years now. The trails, reservoir, tree-top walk and tower are all enjoyable. The scenery is gorgeous and sometimes there are even MONKIES (and other animals) to be seen! The best time of the day...More

Tried to get round the reservoir for a run, but part of the track was under repair. Would have been good to know this before I ran a few kms. Otherwise makes a nice change from shopping centres!

It is very big. You may choose the route. There is shorter and longer roué. There is a tree top bridge which is very interesting. Manage your time as there is one time I started late and end up stuck on the forest in dark.

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.
