The garden is huge. Trekking in it is quite pleasant, with lakes and various sections of different plants & trees the garden comprises of. The National Orchid Garden is a must visit.

One of those places that you here about. Free entry but the orchid garden inside you do have to pay for. Found the map and directions for the gardens a little bit confusing.

We didn't plan on visiting this attraction but the hop on - hop off bus stopped here so we thought we'd give it a try. Feeling a bit peckish we went to the cafe near the entrance. The food was really good and very well priced. My only complaint was that the 3 mela s came out at different times... More

I would thoroughly recommend a visit to these gardens. The blooms were magnificent and the colours incredible. Loved the orchids and the extra displays for the Chinese New Year.

Our third stopover in Singapore and 3rd visit to the Botanic Gardens. A wonderful place to visit offering tranquiity and a chance to see some amazing trees and plants.We still haven't seen everything so maybe there will be a 4th visit!. There are various refreshment facilities and water fountains available.

Look, I'm not a big "plant" person, so I wasn't sure about the botanical gardens the first time I went a couple of years ago, but I heard great things about it and it was FREE. I didn't have much time then, but I could tell from the short time there that it was a must-see. So I went again... More

The gardens can be reached on the open top tourist bus, takes 20 minutes from the centre of Singapore. You will need to spend a good few hours to look round or even do it over 2 days. The gardens are nicely laid out with plenty of seats / benches to sit and admire some of the lovely vistas across... More

We spent last Sunday morning and early afternoon wandering through the botanic gardens, and really, truly enjoyed it. It's an easy walk, and a wonderful escape from the heat and concrete of the city. We culminated our vist with a very surprisingly pleasant lunch at Casa Verde- the outdoor restaurant at the entrance closest to the MRT. Wonderful food, very... More

For orchid and other flower lovers, this is one place in Singapore that should never be missed. For a minimal entrance fee, you'll enjoy exploring and discovering wonders of flowers!!! Amazing!

The gardens are extensive. We found that after a few hours in the heat and humidity, we were ready to head for some air conditioning. That being said, the gardens are well worth a visit. The orchid gardens (small entrance fee) are beautiful. There is even a "cool house" for the plants that grow in cooler climates, and the airconditioning... More
