  • I love the garden and go there for regular walks to get out of the city. Its quietness is perfect for a stroll with a Baby or Toddler. Just be aware of mosquitoes around waters. Mostly the trees...  more »

  • A must go for tourists if you have the time. Bring hat/umbrella and good walking shoes! Relaxing and Refreshing. Enjoy the greenery and foliage. Also a good place for exercise or jogging or brisk walking! ENJOY😊
  • If you're in Singapore you must visit this place. Spectacular. One of the nicest gardens I've been to. A UNESCO Heritage site. Has a fantastic collection of orchids and other local specialties. Very nice food at the central restaurant. Go early, it's very large and amazing in the morning.
  • Amazing place to go for nature lovers. Explore the place to discover new facts and experience the diversity of the plant world. If lucky, you might find some birds and monitor lizards too. There are places to eat and refresh yourself. There are lakes. You could also enjoy a date at the sundial garden.
  • A must visit.One of the best botanical gardens I have ever visited. So many different areas to explore, including the wonderful orchid gardens. Easy place to stroll, with lots of landscaped sections, lakes and corners dedicated to different plants such as cacti and bonsai trees. Would suggest good footwear and a good couple of hours to take in most of the sights. We were there for 90 minutes and didn't get to one side of the gardens. Lots of the areas are open and exposed so definitely bring sun cream and hats.
  • Loved this huge botanic garden. One day isn't enough to finish exploring the garden. You enjoy the nature here, learn about plants and can take many lovely pictures here as I saw my second visit couple were doing professional photo shoot for their wedding photo album🦢🌳🐿💕

The country’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site is a showcase of spectacular tropical flora. There are also many idyllic photo spots throughout the Gardens such as Swan Lake and The Bandstand gazebo. Set in lush greenery, the 158-year-old Singapore Botanic Gardens is the country’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only tropical botanic garden on the list. Its impressive, ornate main gate is a not-to-be-missed photo opportunity. It boasts four pillars and supporting swinging gates framing a cast-aluminium lattice of Bauhinia kockiana, the climber planted at the fencing just beside it. Inside, the gardens is a showcase of spectacular tropical flora, with various species of plants and flowers that makes beautiful photo backdrop.
