Set up during colonial times, and still having a few remnants of the Raj, this huge sprawling park is easily reached by Metro and is free, except for the Orchid Gardens, which charge a nominal fee. There are so many areas and themes throughout the park it could take more than one visit, especially due to the tropical heat and large areas to cover. There are kiosks and cafes in the park and a maze of paths visiting the specialist garden areas. Shady rainforest walks, palm and cycad areas and a large section dedicated to tropical food and Medicine tree crops make for a fascinating and insightful journey. For garden and nature lovers this botanical wonderland should be on everyone’s bucket list, especially when including the World renowned Orchid Gardens

What a beautiful, peaceful place with a variety of trails and areas to visit. You could get lost in here all day if you wanted to and can take your own picnic basket if you wish. The orchid garden was lovely and they had live entertainment in the outdoor theatre which was great. Very well laid out with signs everywhere. Very well kept and despite the heat, very enjoyable! Lovely!

Singapore botanical garden is easily accessible by walking from its subway station by same name.. the only hitch is we need to walk all the way back to catch a train so its a double walk maybe in warm weather thats a minus... Lovely gardens with great views picnic spots and variety of flora and fauna..National Orchid garden is their pride which is in the middle needs a 5$ entry fee a must visit to variety of orchids... Botanicals are ofcourse free... long walks if we want to cover all the places maybe will need 3-4 hours...one star less in the review is for absence of some tram or bikes ( altho it would mar the serenity but a separate way for reaching in the middle would be nice) options for people who dont want to or cant walk.
Locals go for their morning walks .

Outside of Japan, outside of Australia , there is no doubt that the Singapore Botanical Garden (SBG, abbreviation mine) is the best of its kind in Asia.

The fact that it has been around since the 1800’s makes it more amazing. I personally prefer it so much more than Gardens by the Bay.

The British , who used to run Singapore, contributed much with the beginning of the SBG with their steep knowledge on the establishment and the design .

It is a very walkable garden suited for young strollers and kids in “strollers”, and a great place for negative ions.

Culinary delights are made available to refresh the body too.

The foliage and the serenity are prized . Choose mornings or evenings to visit.

The upto 6 year olds should be brought to the relative of the SBG, the Jacob Ballas Garden, for additional outdoor enjoyment .

Well worth a visit considering it's free entry. Incredible variety of plants, beautifully laid out. You may even see some monitor lizards browsing in the undergrowth.
