"Seletar, Peirce & MacRitchie Reservoirs" Seletar Reservoir Park by victorwkf

Seletar Reservoir Park Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 103 photos

The Seletar, Peirce & MacRitchie Reservoirs and its surrounding parks and forest areas make up the beautiful central catchment area of Singapore.

Let me share with you some information about this natural area in Singapore, and perhaps you can give your comments and ratings.

This is the route map of the rainforest canopy walk, which is the latest attraction in this area. The trail starts at the car park located along Venus Drive just off Upper Thomson Road and the whole trip (including getting to the rainforest canopy) takes about 2 hours (and is free of charge). Photographs of this walk which I went on 17 Sep 2005 are at the travelogue section of this VT page for you to enjoy.

This area consists of mainly tropical rainforest which contains some of the most diverse plant and animal species in the world. The trees are so densely packed (shown in this photo) that the forest floor does not receive much sunlight. Why is this place so densely populated? The answer lies in the abundent sunlight all year around (since it is near the equator) and the it rains quite often and heavily in this part of the world, especially the monsoon season period at the end of each year.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the last remaining rainforest areas in Singapore
  • Cons:The hot tropical weather, humidity and mosquitoes
  • In a nutshell:Very nice area in Singapore with quiet and natural surroundings
