after descending from the MRT, directly visible inscription "chinesse garden". There is a very wide yard along the park area. at the end of the road there is a red bridge over the lake. Favorite bridge for visitors. Almost all visitors will never miss to capture images at the top of the bridge.

Nice statues of the chinese zodiac. Very well kept. A bit far from the city but just outside the MRT.

While scrolling around on the maps app on my phone looking for something else I noticed two islands near Jurong East. Zooming in I found the Chinese and Japanese Gardens. A quick bit of research told me that it would be an interest and off-the-beaten-track excursion. While it would not be a place to visit if this is your first... More

This place is so quite and away from the noise of the city. You can chill, cycling and do outing with family or friends. It is really nice place to escape and relax during weekend if you dont have much time to go outside the country.

This is away from the city - the best and the fastest way is SMRT train but once you are there the sight will astound you . The vast collection of the Bonsai and the landscape of this garden will keep you looking for more until you leave . Need to plan for a whole day if you have time... More

The Chinese Garden is excellent, and better than the Japanese garden. Climb to the top of the pagoda for a great view! A very nice escape from the hubbub of the city!

These two gardens are located near each other in Jurong, the west of Singapore. As the name suggests, one is the Chinese Garden, which is Chinese themed and the Japanese Garden is Japanese themed. In the Chinese Garden, you have a nice bridge with arches across the lake. Walking around the garden, you also see a pagoda and bonsai plants.... More
