2. Macritchie Treetop Walk
The TreeTop Walk is the highlight of several long hiking routes located in Macritchie that actually brings you through different stages of a mature secondary forest. This place has become the common spot for people in Singapore to visit since last year. TreeTop Walk is the first of its kind in Singapore and this free standing suspension bridge that connects the two highest points offers a bird’s eye view of the community of plants as well as animals that live in the forest canopy.
This place is best for mind therapy as hiking allows one to combat the symptoms of stress and anxiety in which you might get from work or school. Not to mention with the height of the suspension bridge,one cannot help but feel at the top of the world! Be sure to watch out for the monkeys though!!
