Compared to the Orchid Gardens at the same site the Botanic Gardens lack the wow factor. I was disappointed by the repetition of plants and question the sustainability of this project in the long term.

It was wonderful trip to Singapore, Malasia and Thiland. However, orchid garden at Botanical graden at Singapore at Singapore are worth visiting & memorising. Singapore being commercial place, looking nature developed by them is really good. All other sight seeing places are good too, however, as a highlight I must mention this.

Such a beautiful place to spend a few hours, living in Hong Kong there is so little open space this is a real treat with wide areas of grass to sit on and gorgeous lakes filled with carp. If you are lucky you may also get to see the resident Monitor Lizard!

It's a peacefull park in the middle of Singapore. Depending on the season, you might see a lot of different flowers. Don't miss the Orchid garden. And I strongly advise you to check the events on their website (http://www.sbg.org.sg). Get some drinks and snacks and enjoy a free show (eg. concert) in the middle of the park.

Everything was beautiful, except that it was hot. I love the lake and the Swans, the old trees, fascinating. Beautiful flowers and greenery. It's best to visit after the sun sets.
