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.

We walk the tree walk trail often and have had lots of wilderness encounters as a result of walking quietly. We have seen Ribbon Snakes that leap from tree to tree, Green Tree Snakes, Pigs, Lizards, beautiful pigeons, the habitual monkeys, fish in the creeks, etc... We recently discovered that we are not allowed to park up the Country Club... More

If you're sick of tourist ares such as Orchard or City Hall, you may probably write this forest walk into your travel agenda. This is a nature view of tropic forest. Travelers will see monkey somewhere. This place may request sports wear and comfortable shoes. Local people come here to do morning or evening exercise normally. Travelers MÄY combine Bukit... More

Doesn't feel like you're in the middle of a metropolitan city. Wonderfully preserved with lots of monkeys!

Excellent walk ! The paths are well maintained and easy to navigate. It was not to warm as the paths are well shaded. Do wear good walking shoes and bring enough drinking water.

Went birdwatching with my friend who is Singapore-based. The trail was a bit busy with early morning joggers. Enjoyed the hike and got me some photos of birds.

I initially thought that it will be very hot but surprisingly, It was not that hot as the nature shades almost the whole trail! The road is a llittle bumpy but not... More

We were in Singapore with our 5 yr old so wanted to do a small trek. Started the trail from Venus car park, went all the way to treetop walk. After the treetop, we went to the Jelutong tower and then walked back to the Venus car park area. The total trek was around 8km and we finished it leisurely... More
