A relaxing stroll at the park. A short distance away from the MRT. You will pass thru a large park where locals playing cricket. During my time of visit Mid March. Once you enter the Chinese Garden you will see a large Pagoda with statues of famous Chinese heroes. Lots of photo opportunities of the scenery. Walked along the path... More

The gardens are easy to get to - you just walk off the MRT and you're there. It was a peaceful visit; the gardens are so large that it never felt "busy" when we were there. Lots of beautiful things to photograph. I especially enjoyed the bonsai garden - very old (150+ years!) and impressive tress. Bring snacks and drinks... More

My last visit to this local favourite had been some years ago. This morning, I was there with a friend for a morning walk and was deeply disappointed by what I saw. Instead of a Gardens that has gone from strength to strength to reflect our inheritance, it appears to have gone the other way. There were metal green hoardings... More

This came highly recommended by my friends who visited Singapore couple of years ago. I took the train from directly the airport to this place and I guess I landed here at about the perfect time to be here. Although there were morning-walkies who were jogging and walking in team or alone. The serenity and the calmness of the place... More

Very convenient to the MRT of the same name this is another nice place to touch base with greenery, wildlife and culture. The pagoda is definitely worth climbing for a great 360 view. We also popped into the turtle museum as we had 3 kids in tow. Despite my initial scepticism of keeping animals in captivity it was actually pretty... More

Don't bother with the turtle "sanctuary." You may get depressed for 5$SGD Very sad place. People who dont want their turtle pets dump them at this place.

If you wanna run away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, you might wanna visit this garden and feel the tranquility of the japanese and chines-inspired garden. I was fortunate enough to visit it when only a few tourists were around so I just basked in the serenity of the place by just sitting on a bench... More

Beautiful gardens that are well worth visiting. Very relaxing saunter around. We went on a very hot dry day so beware there is not a lot of shelter from the sun.

Its a lovely place to spend the day away from the busy city. Lots of photo opportunity. We spent half a day over here. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Bring umbrella or wear a hat to shade you from the extreme heat from the sun.
