If you are interested in Chinese & Japanese culture this is a place you must definitively visit. No entrance fee. Took us at least 2hrs to roam around & take pictures

These are stunning gardens. To get there take the MRT to the Chinese Gardens station and it's a short walk from there. Entry is free. Try to arrive early in the day as it can be hot walking around the vast grounds. There are many photo opportunities with beautiful arches, bridges and plants to enjoy. At the Chinese gardens is...

If you're in Singapore, you must visit this place! It's the most beautiful garden I've ever seen. Beautiful architecture, cool Bonsai trees and peaceful atmosphere.

So some of the entrances are shut so I walked for over half an hour in the heat trying to find it. Get off at the garden/lake stop and go in through the Chinese gardens not the Japanese as they are working on that entrance! No cafe so eat in advance - I didn't and was starving the whole time....

Worth it for the bonsai collection alone with some trees being over 300 years old. Made it through about halfway around the park and have to say it was wonderfully kept and maintained.

We have visited the bonsai garden and it was great. Lovely decorated trees in a great surrounding. Worth a visit for sure and it's free of charge. The MRT station "Chinese gardens" brings you right there.

What a beautiful place. An almost hidden tranquil gem in a bustling city - beautiful gardens just outside the main city area, easy to get to via the MRT (stops right at the gardens) and very quiet with mainly locals wandering through it. We were here during peak holiday season for Singapore and these gardens had hardly anyone in them.... More

These two gardens have been here for a very long time. The gardens are well maintained over the years. During the evening and early morning, I can see many old folks and residents staying nearby exercising in the park. Very good sceneries around the garden. Certain parts of the gardens really feels like one which we find in china.
