Handy to reach by train, these gardens offer excellent opportunities for taking photos of Singapore's colourful birds, as well as flowers. There are turtles in the pond, and the Chinese zodiac statues, pagoda and other buildings are beautiful and great for photo opportunities. A free activity to do, the gardens have water fountains and toilet facilities too - you can... More

The locals don't rate it, but I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful tribute to Chinese and Japanese heritage. Also, for those on a budget, it's perfect because entrance is free. Another bonus is that it's right next to an MRT stop. I spent an entire morning just walking around and enjoying the sights and sounds.

This attraction is worth you going out away from the main busy area to enjoy a true Japanese Garden experience. Here you will see natural wildlife living as it was meant to live. The sound of the wind moving through the open area allows you take in the peace that nature provides. You have some great photo opportunities with some... More

Just bypass these and go straight to the Orchid Gardens. These gardens are quite a long way out. We went by train, a pleasant enough trip and a short walk. But the gardens didn't deliver. Nothing much in flower and the upkeep left a bit to be desired.

It is very close to my home..The Chinese & Japanese Gardens are joined together by a bridge and offer a picturesque location with lush green lawns and stunning views of the Chinese Pagodas and lake. Bring your camera for this postcard perfect view. Kids can ride around the tracks, play ball games, fly kites or feed fish in the ponds... More

My parents and I like to walk in this garden because of the very large area. And i think there's no many people know about this garden. They are prefer to go to garden by the bay. Fee entrance is FREE.

A nice place to jog or stroll in the morning or evening. But during weekend this place will be filled with Philippines maid and bangala boyfriends having their lover moment there. Otherwise, it was a good place for a moment of quietness.
