Lovely in any weather - lots of walks, and at Casa Verde to warm up if you are there on a brisk day. There seemed to be even more to see than the last time i had visited (a year ago).The Ginger garden and the Cool room are so awesome.The Rainforest walk also so exotic.

The place is very close to main shopping street of Orchard Rd, it takes 30 min walking or you can arrive with MRT just with little longer trip. Entrance is free all day everyday. Best to enter from the side opposite to MRT, close to a big hospital. From there you are immediately close to a nice lake where you... More

We spent a whole day there, and enjoyed every minute of it. The gardens are well maintained, there are lovely trees there to admire, amazing plants, the orchid section is full of colour and very beautiful, the orchards were interesting, thank you, Singapore for a great time there, so many lovely places to visit.

Visited last August. It was part of a tour and I wasn't looking forward to it as on paper it didn't have the wow factor. I was pleasantly surprised - it was gorgeous. Well laid out - meandering pathways - the vast amount of flora and fauna all in immaculate condition was beautiful. The Orchids were amazing! We walked for... More

I was actually quite disappointed with this. It appears a bit run down already and not much interesting attractions. Well, it's free after all, but expecting that a country like Singapore should be able to do better with this. Overall, I think it's still a good experience to stroll around, given the contrast between this and Singapore's busy concrete city.... More

Once again a lively place for colours and to see some fantastic plants and flowers. I strongly suggest giving yourself a full day to visit and explore this wonderful attraction.

These gardens are a « must see » of Singapore. An early morning visit not only is cooler but an insight into the diverse culture of Singapore – Tai Chi, Expat Nordic walking groups, Mums and Toddlers aerobics classes etc. The gardens are beautifully arranged, children friendly and the orchid garden is stunning. It’s also only a short walk out... More

Whether it is a morning run, or an evening stroll. This is one of the places to be especially if you like fauna. There's always people though not crowd unless on weekends.

Beautiful, lush, well maintained, varied, some with shade, plenty of benches - all great. The variety of plants is awe inspiring. Very well thought out. Minor negatives are that better signage and better maps would be really helpful. And then there is the heat.... There is a range of food and beverage opportunities, and I found a water fountain. With... More

These gardens are simply stunning. I spent only a few hours here but I could have spent a whole day or more here. The cafe by the Orchid garden is a lovely place to stop and have tea and cake.
