It was raining when we were there so we didn't walk as far as we would have otherwise. It's a lovely setting full of walking paths with water views. There were several long-tailed macaques right near the entrance and these were a delight to watch....More

It is very easy to reach MacRitchie Res. Hop off Caldecott MRT and you're there! In fact you're at the Mushroom Cafe (also called Setia) which is ideal. Have a quick snack or a meal, fill your water bottle, visit the near by loo, &...More

This nature walk amongst luscious trees and undergrowth with its local inhabitants of monitor lizards and monkeys is well worth the trip. There are times when you think you are in the wilderness when realistically the city and its motorways is only 1km away. Watch...More

MacRitchie Reservoir is well worth a visit, if you can spare the time between all the other wonderful treats on offer in Singapore. Not quite the 'nature experience' of Pulau Ubin or Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, but it does provide a welcome break from the...More

Nice place to go if you want to spend one day outside of Singapore. Pretty far from the center but if you have time, I will suggest to visit it.

Not really - whilst flat - its not the easiest place to get to from hotel areas of Singapore. Would recommend the botanical gardens and orchid gardens within.

It’s a suitable place for morning runs. Wonderfully peaceful and serene to jog or walk around the grounds. Always better in the morning or evening to avoid the scorching heat in this region.

The new "Learning Forest" at the Botannical Gardens (Tyersall Ave entrance) has a smaller suspension bridge and some rain forest. Can see similar scenery in around 20 mins walking time!
