If you want to explore a park in Singapore a little off the beaten path, I would suggest the Japanese Garden and Chinese Garden in Jurong East. Both Gardens are built on artificial islands in Jurong Lake (previously Jurong River) and are connected by a 13 arch bridge. The Chinese Garden features a Pagoda, a stone boat, a Garden of... More

This is one attraction that caught my discerning eye. Chinese and Japanese gardens side by side. An impressive entrance behind which are the types of gardens that fits your minds eye very snugly. Wonderful bonsai garden, Stone Boat, tower, bamboo gardens, koi, statues, water features all merge to give a very restful, graceful and enjoyable experience.

A good outing for a couple of hours. The stand out features for me were the Pagoda (nice views), the turtle sightings in the ponds and surprisingly what appeared to be Komodo dragons. The last was a surprise but really nice to see. Entry was free, it is easy to get to, and apart from the heat of the midday... More

Nestled on the eastern side of Singapore, just a step away from the concrete jungle of downtown Singapore are these Chinese and Japanese Gardens, popularly called just the Chinese Garden. Its a very nice place, lush green with very well designed gardens, replete with water bodies, lots of places to rest, public utilities and even a high rise pagoda. The... More

Not good for a hot day, try evenings. Beautiful tranquil place to be, interesting settings. Probably nicer when there are events like the lantern festival going on.

Despite the lively, cosmopolitan impression Singapore likes to give its visitors, there are still some bits of it that is quite dull. This is, if unhelpfully, one of them. OK,it's a park in a residential area, modeled with the archetypal medieval Chinese / Japanese town garden in mind. And a major overhaul is under way: in a few years' time... More
