peaceful, serene, beautiful

Little outside of the city, but what a gem. Both the Chinese and the Japanese gardens are very pretty, well done and give you a great sense of peace and harmony.

Fantastic place.easy to get to on mrt. Also the mrt trip gives you a great sense of the real singapore. It's a two minute walk to entrance. My children loved it and we saw two huge lizards just walking across footpath which made their day. It is so tranquil and no one seems to go there - well not tourist... More

Went for a quick visit, unfortunately, we didn't give ourselves enough time to explore and enjoy. Our first impression was of well laid out gardens in the Chinese and Japanese style. We thought they were superb and were sorry we couldn't have spent longer. They were very tranquil and relaxing, yet in the formal style the Chinese and Japenese are... More

If you feel like escaping the city and wandering around some nice gardens then this is a good place however the you can get better at the Botanical gardens which are much closer to the CBD

These Gardens are full of History and are kept beautifully, a credit to all those involved. Singapore you should be proud.

The Chinese and Japanese gardens are one of my favorite places in Singapore. It is an amazing place to just walk around and see the beauty of Mother Nature.

These are well planned gardens with wide, sealed walking paths. The gardens cover a large area and although they are popular it is possible to find a quite spot for a picnic, relaxing or admiring your surrounds. The lakes are full of carp and there are many water birds to be seen. Entry to the garden is free. Within the... More

It is more suitable for local people to hanging around. Nothing special in the garden only with a pond with fresh air. Suitable for family with kids like me to spend a weekend with them, picnic or jogging. For oversea tourists i would suggest to visit Botanic Garden instead.

There are no so many parks of such size in Singapore and this one could very well be the "botanic gardens of the west". However, nothing really seems to make it attractive, particularly the Japanese gardens section which is old-fashioned (tyres used as flower pots, large unappealing paths) and offer virtually no attractions to children, In land scarce Singapore, it...
