MacRitchie Reservoir

Lift Your Spirits at MacRitchie


Encompassed by expansive swamps and rich greenery, Singapore’s First Reservoir - MacRitchie Reservoir is a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. Housing some 100 ha of primary forests in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, MacRitchie is one of the last strongholds to some precious patches of primary rainforests left in Singapore today. Rubber trees, nutmegs, oak and other remnants of our native tree species, will bring you back in time to the majesty of the pristine forest ecosystem that once covered the whole island of Singapore in the 19th century.

City Macritchie

MacRitchie’s many footpaths and boardwalks skirting the edge of the scenic reservoir range in distances from 3km to 11km. Interpretative signboards along the boardwalks allow for a self-guided tour along the fringes of the MacRitchie forest.

The HSBC TreeTop Walk (HSBC TTW) is the highlight of several long hiking routes in MacRitchie that brings you through different stages of mature secondary forest. The first of its kind in Singapore and in the region, this free-standing suspension bridge connects the two highest points (Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang) in MacRitchie and offers a bird's eye view of the community of plants and animals that live in the forest canopy. The total length of the walkway is about 250m and its height from the forest floor varies, with the highest point at 25m.

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Step into Singapore’s second ASEAN Heritage Park and explore one of the largest stands of primary lowland dipterocarp forest in our island. The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve was officially declared as an Asean Heritage Park on 18 October 2011. Together with Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, it is now part of the prestigious regional network of 30 protected areas, forming the complete spectrum of representative ecosystems in ASEAN.


Best known for its tallest hill, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve also contains pockets of hill dipterocarp forest, not found anywhere else in Singapore. For a reserve of only 0.2% of our country’s total area or 163 hectares, it is amazingly rich in biodiversity with about 40% of the nation’s flora and fauna. Find the Seraya (Shorea curtisii), a large tree that is a flagship species here, or spot the rare Mock Durian (Neesia synandra) which has inedible fruit that look like a durian. Rare fauna like the Forest Praying Mantis and the Singapore Freshwater Crab are denizens of the reserve, together with other animals like the pangolin, Horsfield’s Flying Squirrel and Colugo.
