The Chinese Garden is a park at Jurong East. It is located next to the Chinese Garden MRT station and connected to the Japanese Garden by a bridge. At the main gates of the Chinese Gardens, there are two marble lions, welcoming the visitors and guarding the entrance of the garden. There is a pagoda on a small hill in... More

We had an extra day of subway passes and decided to go out to see these gardens. First of all, we were thrilled that the subway surfaced and we were able to see more of Singapore from above ground. The gardens are adjacent to the MRT station, just to the south. It is more a "local" park than anything. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Tranquil and pleasant. Lots of birds, monitor lizards and turtles. If you've had enough of the hustle and bustle a visit here is lovely. Easy to get here the MRT stops right outside. We also went to the Tortoise and Turtle Museum which is in the gardens. 5 S$

There are couple of nice spots but overall in comparison to the Botanical gardens or Garden by the bay it is not worth the way from the downtown. Regardless what other people say the turtle musem is nothing special and even though I might not understand it I felt bad for the animals. Most of them were kept in tiny,... More

The entire gardens are fun to walk around in and picnic, but the turtle and turtoise museum is a hidden gem. It requires a separate entrance fee-- but it is totally worth it. You have turtles and turtoises walking around, and you can buy long beans/other pellets to feed them. Wonderful with kids (perhaps 5 and older--once they have a... More

These gardens are located close to the Chinese Garden mrt station, which is 1 stop west from Jurong East. Covering quite a large area with a few interesting statues and lakes. The main pagoda is currently under renovation. Better to come in the morning to avoid the heat. Free entry.

We visited Chinese gardens on a weekday and it was empty, which meant it was lovely and peaceful. There isn't much to do, but that's the point. If it's floral diversity you want then you're better off going to the Botanic gardens, but there are plenty of statutes and structures to look at. There is also a turtle and tortoise... More
