Be sure to pay a visit- may be a bit underwhelming compared to other UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but it's one that incredibly accessible and visited by everyone- from locals to expats and foreign workers. I'm particularly fond of the Swan lakes, which are nice...More

If you need some exercise in between your tour program in Singapore, do spend a few hours at the Botanic Gardens. You can jog or walk briskly along the many paths and maybe like we did, come across a monitor lizard (I think), and drink...More

You can take a walk in a rain forest, on elevated walkways and come closed to the canopy layer and emergent layer and not only on the forest floor.

Go early or later in day as it is hot - worth the visit - food places or pack a lunch for a picnic - don't forget your camera.

Spend some quality time at this breathtaking garden. Picnic, relaxing, jogging, nature seekers, you can do almost anything in this place surrounded by thousands of species of plants and trees. Do not miss out the beautiful tree which is featured in Singapore's five-dollar note.

Oh yes.. the weather will probably be warmer but there's lots of shady areas. If the heat gets into you, you can always check into air conditioned souvenir shops and pretend to browse. Not to say there is nothing interesting... More
