  • Lots of gardens and plants to see whatever the time of the year. Basically all for free which is amazing. Definitely worth a visit but be prepared to be hot and bring suncream. There are water fountains dotted around to refill bottles. The orchid gardens were definitely worth the money too. I would recommend for all ages you can spend ages there.
  • This place is beautiful! You can jog, walk, relax, play and do lunch more here! The plants and trees are very beautiful and smell great. There is a big open field too do that you can play and have a picnic with you're family. There is a canopy net that is really fun to walk on. If you don't like the sun and want to have a picnic, there are a few picnic spots under some shady areas that would block out the sun so you could enjoy your picnic. There is also a pong where elegant swans would swim but remember, do not feed them! Overall, I would rate botanical gardens a 10/10!
  • It's the only tropical garden to be regarded as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It houses unique Flora and is truly picturesque in all its senses. Come here to relax, read a book, do a family picnic, play with your kids or attend a symphony concert. A complete place to enjoy with family.
  • Singapore's pride! Nature at the heart of a progressive city. It houses the National Orchid Center and a number of gardens, lagoons, and plant showcases. You can also encounter various animals going about the garden like orioles, monitor lizards, and other reptiles. This area is senior citizen - friendly and has lots of rest areas indoors or alfresco.
  • One of the best spot in Singapore if you want to enjoy nature. Great for running, jogging, or picnic. If you like photography, this is also a good place to practice your skill to snap great photos.

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.
