If you are looking for a serene place that you can admire asian architecture and culture, relax, walk and take pictures, this is the place. I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes and bringing water and some quick snacks. Both gardens to cover requires some walking. Very accessible, it just a few steps from the I visited on a weekday and... More

Easy to get to by MRT, these lovely gardens are great for a stroll and chilling out, although we went on a bank holiday so it was fairly busy. Worth a visit to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

I love going to these Gardens. It's a great outing, with some head phones in checking out the scenery. My favourite thing to do in Singapore. Keep an eye out for the turtles, squirrels, and monitor lizards. The tortoise museum is definitely worth the $5 entry fee, to see all the different types of tortoise. Although a little sad to...

If you visit Singapore and find it's just too crowded everywhere you go, and if like me, you hate crowded place, do visit Singapore Chinese / Japanese Garden. It's not as crowded as anywhere else in Singapore. There are a lot of nice views here which you can take photos or just enjoy the scenery and fresher air. Booking is... More

One of the most beautiful gardens in Singapore is this park. It has nice and unique gardening and interesting statues. Some of the statues are the Chinese year`s symbols. You can find your own Chinese birth year and find out which characters you have! Most of the time, the park is not crowded except at public holidays and also when... More

We loved these gardens, especially the bonsai garden in the Chinese garden. The gardens were virtually empty on a weekday and close to Chinese Gardens or Lakeside MRT stops. Free entry. Note that the part of gardens near the lake itself on the way to the Chinese and Japanese Gardens is closed. You have to walk a fair bit to... More

Not many tourists may know these gardens (probably most of them go to Gardens by the Bay), but surprisingly, we enjoyed our visit here. We went on a weekday as advised by one of the T.A. members, and it was really quiet and peaceful. We had many photos with good scenic backgrounds. There was also a group of photographers who...

Enjoying nature in Singapore, has the added benefit of Pokemon hunters added to the mixture now. On my recent trip there seemed to be approx 10 people enjoying the great spaces and relaxing and many many many hunting the elusive Pokemon. The great thing is that there is so much space that we can all enjoy a day out and... More
