MacRitchie Reservoir, Singapore

4.6
#3 of 9 in Nature in Singapore
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.

  • Great place to relax yourself here. Enjoy the sunny and windy environment with great view. Good for people who are looking into a natural place to jog or sightseeing. Please remember to apply your sunblock haha!
  • You will feel the forest smell and witness some beauty here. You need to take the trail starting from the MacRitchie Reservior for full hiking trip. Plan your time ahead because @ 5:00PM Tree Top Walk gate is close. You will hike uphill be prepared for the exercise. You can skip the time and head to Tree Top Walk starting from Venus Car Park, Take bus 162M in Blk 454 bus station, from Orchard Street. Bring sufficient water if you don't have you can drink cold water at Radio station on the way to Tree Top Walk Gate.
  • The walk around the lake is absolutely amazing. Go there, rent a kayak, walk in the rain forests, rest and relax by the lake, peaceful nature walk. Best time to go - around 4pm so that you are not hit by the hot afternoon sun.
  • Huge lake and lots of trees. Ocasionally you will be greeted by squirrels. Love the fresh air after rain.
  • The lake is absolutely breathtaking in urban Singapore.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
