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.

A pretty long trail but a interesteing family activity. However, pathways are overly crowded with visitors.

As a disabled visitor not everything is accessible. The treetop paths are utterly fabulous and the views superb. So lovely to be above everything and still able to see

MacRitchie is lovely. I have been there a number of times and, especially in Urban Singapore, it is a nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle. There is a Japanese shrine in the jungle for those looking for a slightly more adventurous escapade and it is rumored that a Japanese general hid a fortune in gold somewhere... More

I didn't realised Singapore did have such a splendid place to visit. The natural is remained untouch, many people jog at this place. The kids get to feel the beauty of forest and yet not much of dangerous animal around. A good place for bird watching too.

My husband and I didn't know too much about the nature trail before we took on the walk to the Tree Top and we should have taken more snacks and water. That said it is a beautiful walk and we really enjoyed the experience of having such a natural park so close to the busy city. There were different elements... More

I enjoyed the Gardens by the Bay, the Botanic Garden and the Southern Ridges and couldn't believe it could get much better than that. But then I went and visited MacRitchie Nature Trail. It was so impressive and picturesque I was a bit overwhelmed. The tree top bridge was a highlight but I also really enjoyed the boardwalk near the... More

Singapore is a beautiful place, although its a massive city. MacRitchie was a great place to get out and see some nature on a nice long hike. Being also so close to the city its an easy choice to take a hike there.

I convinced my husband to do this walk with me. Yes, it was really hot, sticky and at times uncomfortable but it was so worth it. You are in Singapore, it's hot and sticky. Love the fact that it is free and so well utilised by locals. We ended up doing the full 12 km loop which took a little... More
