  • The gardens are Unesco world heritage and deservedly so. The orchids are breathtaking. Advise to come early or late in the day to beat the heat.  more »

  • Beautifully arranged flowers with many rare species and combinations that you will not be able to see anywhere else in the world. Definitely a highlight of Singapore with many photo opportunities and a very enjoyable walk. It can get very busy with people wanting to all take the same pictures, as such, the garden is not as relaxing as it could be and for that experience I would strongly advise going during the week or perhaps close to the opening and or closing times. If you are lucky and patient you will also catch some wildlife!
  • Wonderful gardens. The Orchid Gardens themselves justify the visit to the Botanic Gardens. Colorful arrangements that will keep you walking for hours and make you loose track of time!
  • My wife and I hadn't planned to come here but we found out about it while walking through Gardens by the Bay. We are so pleased we visited as it is amazing and compliments have to be given to all the staff involved in keeping it looking and smelling so nice. There are many displays of flowers and wood structures. We spent over an hour here and it was relaxing. I'm not very keen on flowers but enjoyed it all the same. Visited April 2015.
  • This beautiful and well-appointed garden is worth the S$5 entrance fee. I could have easily spent so much more time here. Try to arrive earlier than noon as it may be difficult to tour and take pictures with the sun directly overhead and many other tourists present. Might even be best to break the tour up into two days.
  • Very nice place, beautiful nature and make sure to check out the various (free) events they organise regularly at the park

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
