Takes a while to get there via MTR but it really is a beautiful and serene park and a welcome respite from the city.

It is absolutely magnificent. 7 Stories Pagoda, Twins Pagodas, Bonsai Garden, Chinese New Year Characters Park are on Chinese Park Island and Stone Lantern Exhibition on Japanese Island are worth to be seen as well as small and large bridges. Highly recommended to be seen.

The gardens are absolutely beautiful. This must be on your list of things to do in Singapore. Just a short metro ride out of the city. It's free and so worth your time.

Absolutely! They go on now and best time is of course the night time when the lights come on. Alternatively there is one going on at Gardens by the bay, along with the lights for Diwali.
