We went here early in the morning and there were joggers and tai-chi going on. The gardens are beautiful and several of the workers stopped what they were doing to talk about the plants. Would have liked to have spent longer there!

Right up there with Kew Gardens in London but far more exotic. The National Orchid Garden is quite remarkable.

Lovely place for a stroll to get away from the hustle of Singapore. Gardens are immaculate with so many different species of Flora. Lovely lake full of Carp and Terrapin. Really good eateries all at sensible prices. One really good thing, if you fancy a picnic you can buy one complete with a ground sheet for only $30 fir two... More

While spread out, the botanic gardens are gorgeous and an easy walk from Orchard Road or the MRT. Lush, green, well laid out (most of the layout is original from the 1800's) and with convenient eateries and shade houses to cool off. Well worth a visit.

If you are a garden lover the botanic gardens should be a must of your list of things to visit while in singapore. The gardens are free to visit and a pleasant way to spend a few hours away from the busy city.

Beautiful gardens, well maintained, very peaceful and quiet despite being close to the city. Bring a picnic basket though. Food and drinks are quite costly.

I'd recommend Singapore Botanic Garden to anybody that visit Singapore. Besides being free, it offers tired visitors some respite amongst the green. Do bring your picnic basket, mat and book along as it is a great way to spend some quiet time there, taking in the lush greenery and attain some peace.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens ... a beautiful garden filled with lots of botanical surprises and loads of exciting fun. This is a garden not only for the researchers, it is a great place for the children, too. Visit the Jacob Ballas Children Garden, a children garden within the Singapore Botanic Gardens. This is a garden dedicated specially for children to... More

A great place to walk in the shade and see beautiful trees and plants. If you are lucky you get to see tiny squirrels darting in out of the foliage. My daughter lives in Singapore and walks in the gardens every week and loves it.
