  • Really nice place to have a pleasant leisure time. Just walk around and stretch your muscles with greenary on your back. Good for the eys and the Muscles too. A Must visit if you are a nature Lover. 
  • We visited this on our last day in the evening at around 5pm.I don't recommend this if you are tight on schedule. 
  • Very nice gardens, especially orchids garden , nice place to take pictures ,lot of walking go early morning or in the evening 
  • Get up early, eat a hearty breakfast and plan on spending the day here! Lots of walking trails, nicely organized, and a shady fountain area for midday relaxing. I loved the orchids area most. There was a display of specially bred orchards for famous and important people. Loved the one bred for Princess Diana. A lovely grass area for playing in. If you can, plan on two days to see every thing! They open at 7a.m.
  • A World Heritage garden with many plant specimens. Within the garden, one can find a great Orchid Garden with mesmerizing blooms at all times. By the lake, you may serenade the graceful ripples created by those beautiful swans. Please mark in your itinerary the next time you are in Singapore.
  • There are so many amazing attractions in Singapore that don’t cost a penny. I didn’t have time on my short trip to conquer them all, but I did get a chance to explore the Singapore Botanical Gardens and their MASSIVE Orchid Complex. The Gardens are so stunning and huge that they are a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site. You won’t be bored I promise. Definitely pay the small $5 SGD ($3.70 USD) fee to gain access to the Orchids. They have rare species from all over the globe laid out an amazing clusters among winding roads and greenhouses that stretch for miles. The whole thing is made to look natural, but you can tell it’s $100M+ worth of orchids carefully arranged and tended to with the eye of an architect to have the maximum visual impact.
  • I underestimated this place! Oh it's so beautiful! Go on a rainy day and you ll fell like you are in a rainforest. Best place if you want to be closer to nature and be in a quiet place. Carry enough food and keep yourself hydrated. Also well connected to MRT and buses.
  • Like all National Parks Board gardens and nature areas, the Singapore botanical gardens is an excellent place to unwind, exercise or just relax. There are many shaded sitting areas inside where one can sit and read a book. If the weather is sunny, some of the huge trees there give great shade and it is a pleasure to walk under them. At the end near Orchard gate, there's a nice cafe where you can get some good stuff to eat.
