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

We spent a wonderful 3 hours in the gardens, including the National Orchid Garden. It is a huge place, and so many different options for things to see that it's almost overwhelming. We didn't see it all but we saw plenty. The grounds are nicely maintained and the signage is excellent. Loved the Ginger Garden, fascinating ... And enjoyed many... More

We were on a hop on hop off bus and decided to make a stop at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. We spent a very pleasant couple of hours wandering around this large and beautifully maintained garden. There were not a huge amount of flowers out but it was a peaceful place and we particularly enjoyed the spectacular display of orchids.... More

An oasis of greenery and wildlife. To have such a large area in a city that views space as a money making opportunity for a new mall or apartment complex is amazing. The gardens are extensive with different themed regions and wildlife just waiting to be spied by the keenest of eyes. We saw turtles popping their heads up in... More
