The garden had the feel of a city park with many families playing and picnicking in this lovely open space. Walkers, joggers and of course, plant lovers took advantage of this beautiful environment. And it's free! Easy taxi drop off and pick up and the city tour busses stop here too. It's so big--no way to do it all in... More

A nice tranquil place to relax in Singapore and get away from the humidity. The Gardens are well laid out, beautiful arrangements of the flowers, shrubs and trees

Take a long walk through the large Garden/Arboretum and Orchid Garden. There are many parts to the garden, all worth visiting. The Most stunning is the separate Orchid Garden, there is a small charge but the area a feast of different orchids. There are a number of restaurants and The Garden Bee Restaurant is good value.

It is really wide spread, so bring some time. You can easily spend half a day in there if it is not too hot. There are a lot of different garden themes. The most impressing was the evolution walk, where the history of the earth is pictured with the different stages of plants. Really well made!

A more than 150 year old garden. A UNESCO World Heritage Site! A large wonderful oasis in the middle of Singapore. Beautiful surroundings. Frequented by locals, tourists, maids on days off, photography enthusiasts with tripods, other enthusiasts with binoculars, families with children. All without getting crowded, as the gardens cover an area of 72 hectares. Access is free! What is... More

This is a very nice garden (with no entry fee) with great samplings of Asian flora. The problem we had was with the signage. We never found the bonsai garden, and finding the way out wasn't easy either. There were no guides that we could find, except at the entrance/exit. We did encounter a lovely lady who is local and...

These gardens are among the most important in the world. They are the home of orchids and a multitude of hybrids are propagated here. There are steps to a lily pond built by prisoners of war under the Japanese, and many of the trees are 150 plus years old. Grand sweeping lawns. Perfect day out.

It doesn't often happen that I walk around open mouthed in wonder, but this place did that to me. It was raining heavily, but I didn't care as I enjoyed walking around this paradise so much!
