The drive to the Botanic Gardens was a very pleasant journey through the tree lined streets of Spore. My party of 3 and I stopped to have a meal and a drink (the food as is typical in Spore was yummy but the drinks were really quite expensive). I remember baulking at the price of a glass of house wine.... More

The Singapore Botanic Gardens near the Orchard Road shopping district in the Lion City is a 183-acre botanical garden that first amazed visitors in 1859, and is currently under consideration to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I immediately noticed that the grounds and foliage of the Singapore Botanic Gardens were amazing! I had been to Taipei Botanic Gardens and... More

Got there by open topped bus. Mainly went to see the Orchid Gardens. The main gardens are free but there is a small charge for the Orchid Gardens. A lovely day out.

In our opinion the Singapore Botanic Gardens are in the same class as Stanley Park in Vancouver, Balboa Park in San Diego and perhaps Central Park in New York. The park is manicured but is laid out with curved pathways, giving it an informal feel. The national orchid garden is fabulous. The lush tropical vegetation is a lovely contrast to... More

The Botanic Gardens are worth a visit. The greenery is soothing and one can visit the Orchid Garden which boasts a enormous variety of lovely flowers many named after distinguished visitors. Another section has the original jungle with tall trees hundreds of years old. Go in the early morning or the evening when it cooler and bring along some water... More

If you are into gardening and even if you're not this is a great place to visit. Many families here with picnic lunches. Very well labeled plants, trees and flowers. If you have time, don't miss a stop here.

Go in the evening. If you're lucky, you may catch a free open air concert. And if you're even more lucky, wait near the waterfall behind Halia restaurant, and you may even catch the red-legged crake going for its evening bath (usually around 6 pm or so) during the season when it migrates to Singapore.

A stunning area with plenty of walk ways to explore. Early in the morning there are often people doing Tai Chi. Whilst most of the garden is free the National Orchid Garden is well worth a visit.
