A pleasant means of getting to the Orchid Garden. Neat and tidy but not special without the Orchid section

It's located near to main attraction in Singapore, Orchard Rd. Time to refresh and relax your mind. You can find lot of expatriate's wives walk their babies while jogs since it's also near to business district in Singapore. I always love place with lot of trees, and for bonus, it has swan pond, although I just saw about 2-3 swans.... More

I felt so good in SIngapore Botanic Garden, sitting under Banyan Tree next to a small lake, enjoying the moment. I think this was my favorite place in Singapore. It is one of the few places there or maybe the only place that is free :) To visit Orchid Garden (which is very beautiful and highly recommended) you just have... More

You don't have to be a gardener or into gardening to enjoy and appreciate this place. Just walk the tropical gardens and see and read about some of the "strange" (well to the Brits!) trees and plants. Its all free, the only charge made (optional) for the orchid gardens.

We went here as it had been recommended to us. If you like plants or just a walk in a park then it is perfect. The only thing you have to pay a little for is the orchid section which I would also recommend. The restaurant there is a little pricey but it is upmarket. We went for a cocktail... More

At about 2km end-to-end, it's a very pretty place for a casual run. Some paths are crowded though so be careful not to run into anyone.

How on earth in a country this size its been possible to build and maintain gardens like this... you have to go! And, visit the orchid garden whilst you're there. And, if you happen to coincide with a concert - you're mega lucky

This garden is well used by both locals and tourists and for good reasons. It's great as a place to stroll around, great for families (has a children's play area) great if you want to bring your dog to walk around,(dog friendly cafe) great for brunch, lunch or dinner and also a nice place to have picnics when there are...

Firstly - I am NOT a person greatly impressed by this type of attraction but I was super impressed. Entrance is free (except for the Orchid section - and for $2 it is well worth the price). Because of the climate in Singapore there is a lot going for plant life and the gardens has taken every opportunity to exploit... More

Liked the large display of plants, the rain forest & orchid garden. Also liked the restaurant. Did not like the directions and map - as we got lost - so did other people!
