Just a short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie Reservoir, part of Singapore’s water system that captures rain water to help supply the island’s growing population. Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor center featuring a café, restrooms, and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250 m (820 ft) suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the 7 km (4 mi) Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water.

  • A great place for a half a day’s hike. Can be humid during the hot season.

MacRitchie Reservoir Park is a good starting point for the 20km network of boardwalks and trails of varying difficulties and distances that take visitors through the forest around the reservoir. MacRitchie Reservoir Park is a good starting point for the 20km network of boardwalks and trails of varying difficulties and distances that take visitors through the forest around the reservoir. It is worth trekking to the Tree Top Walk, a 250m-long suspension bridge running between the two highest points in MacRitchie where visitors can enjoy thrilling views of the forest canopy. Visitors are advised to hike towards the bridge by 4.45pm from the Ranger Station as the gate closes at 5pm. Water sports enthusiasts can choose to rent canoes and kayaks instead.
