The Chinese Garden is quite nice. A traditional Chinese garden will combine four elements: rock, water, plants and buildings, and will provide the visitor with interesting and pleasant vistas around every bend, often surprising the eye. This one does meet those standards. It’s less than...More

Wonderful garden that looks like an expansive palace. The biking trail, bonsai garden, lake and canopies gives it a remote look contrast to crowded town of Singapore. Its lakeside is a peaceful place to relax and read books.

Took off from Chinese Garden MRT station. You can see a tall pagoda. It was very hot so you should bring a hat or umbrella. It's a good visit to relax (even though the weather was super hot)
