Lovely gardens with plenty of places to walk, great variety of plants and a peaceful haven near the city centre. I was keen to see what wildlife was on offer but had to visit on a Sunday when it was quite busy and so wildlife watching was not quite as good as it might have been had there been less... More

Excellent gardens and the orchid garden was amazing. Need at least half a day probably if you are going to cover the whole of the gardens or if you have less time it is well sign posted and you can see your priority areas.

This is a very nice place with lots of plant varieties. It is quite big so wear comfortable clothing and shoes as it will get very hot and humid

Whether you are a one time visitor to Singapore or a local, the Botanic Gardens is a must do. Just lovely. Expansive garden with many theme gardens inside - orchid garden, ginger garden, healing garden, evolution garden, children's garden, rainforest walk, etc Come early in the morning to see the locals exercising, doing yoga or Thai chi on the dew...

It is a nice garden and the most remarkable memories were the bites of mosquitoes we got! Otherwise, the orchids were nice and the whole garden was fantastic. We used mosquito repellents but that did not work out in here. (In other South East Asian countries we never got bitten.)

We had planned a quick stopover in Singapore and enjoyed strolling through the gardens before the flight to Taiwan. The Gardens were just down the road from our Hotel. Worth a visit if you have the time.

This is one of my highly recommended places for my overseas friends to visit when they are in Singapore. It is a quiet oasis with lovely large shady old trees where one can sit and contemplate life. It has everything, open spaces, ancient trees, stunning flowers, cute tortoises, white swans, hungry fish etc. For those who love orchids, a must... More

I love visiting the Singapore Botanic gardens. It offers a tranquil area in the bustle of Singapore. It is neatly kept (what else to expect in Singapore) and offers stunning views. But the real pearl is the Orchid garden (for entrance one must pay a small fee. Admittance to the Botanic Garden itself is free). The Orchid garden offers a... More

We travelled 45 minutes on the MRT to visit here and to be honest it wasn't really worth it. Although it was nice with different areas to visit etc it was like being in Roundhay Park in Leeds! Gardens by the Bay a much better choice.

It's fair to say you need plenty of water for walking around here! That being so, it was still an enjoyable walk, seeing nature and animals. I would suggest according this in the peak heat, and allowing a few hours at least here.
