This is a great place to go waste an hour or two and have a long lunch. Nice statues and Pagodas. Good place to shoot some pictures.

The last time I visited was during the mid-Auterm festival many years ago. The place was understandably packed to the brim and I never went back till today. This time I went at 8am on a Friday morning for a walk and found the tranquility and quiet I was looking for. Parking at the Japanese Gardens was very limited, so... More

Its a nice place to go with open park land and some interesting statues and gardens but its best for people on long stays in Singapore - a tier 2 attraction.

I really like going to the Chinese and Japanese gardens for bonsai (Japanese name) and penjing (Chinese name). There is large collection of these miniature plants. Some of them are really old one. The second thing that brings me to this place is collection of Japanese garden lanterns. I guess, all known types are there. There are of course many... More

Big gardens with chinese leaders and philosopher s statues. You need half day to explore it. Chinese garden MRT is nearest one. Avoid sundaybecause of crowd. Enterence is free of cost.
