If you love flowers this is a must see. From tropical orchids to desert cactus. If not go for the architecture. The buildings themselves are breathtaking. Worth a stop.

It is an excellent place to just get lost in. On a nice day you should bring a book and find a quiet corner. It is easy to get around with several exhibits. Perfect for a packed lunch.

It is a must visit, whilst in Singapore, to spend a couple of hours strolling around these gardens. They have not deteriorated in the 25+ years that I have been visiting. Best in the early morning before it gets too hot. Great to ensure the Orchid Garden is also walked through.

Stay for the lights show at night! You don't even have to pay to access the higher areas to enjoy it.

Very much within the framework as set by its founder Sir Stamford Raffles in 1822 you can explore all the treasures this boanical garden has for its visitors. There is a ca. half hour rain forest trail that is especially recommended. At on end of the trail there is just a short walk across to the entrance of the Orchid... More

Nice place to visit. The Orchid garden was worth the little bit of extra money to see. If you have a student card make sure you use it to get reduced entrance.

These gardens are well laid out and as natural as possible with various different themes To pay a couple of dollars to go in the orchid garden is a bonus Ideally allow 3-4 hours
