“Wonderful , just try not to walk it all in a day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

These are probably one of the best botanical gardens in the world. Given that we're Brit's and are spoilt by Kew Gardens near London, the Singapore Botanical Gardens are spectacularly wonderful. The wide open landscape makes you feel you've escaped from the City, and that you could almost be in another world.

The lakes are beautiful and an absolute must is a visit to the Orchid garden, truly memorable.

This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Singapore on vacation, or with some free time on a business trip. Just don't expect to walk it all in a day, with the Singapore humidity it'll be a bit of a challenge.

“Love the greens and oasis within the garden e.g. the herb garden. Orchid garden has beautiful blooms.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

The wrought iron gate entrance to the garden is simply magnificent. Stepping into the garden brings one into an enchanted garden with matured trees and green lawns. The slope looking towards the stage gives an uninterrupted view of the performance and the atmosphere is certainly one of "a concert with nature". The herb garden with the ginger plants welcomes visitors with a fragrance of ginger. The orchid garden is a spot in the garden that I will never miss. Am always surprised by the many beautiful orchid blooms. Cafe Verde serves good quality pizzas and drinks to hungry stomach and tired feet.

“Love it. Green in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

It's green in the middle of the city.And the best thing is it's free. And new MRT station just next to it.
If you have the chance, visit the Orchid Garden inside as well (there is a fee).
Sometimes they have free concert on weekend at the Symphony lake as well.

wonderful peaceful oasis in a busy city, plenty of pathways and places to sit, large lake and orchid garden, entry fee for orchid garden but well worth it if you are an orchid lover. Well worth a visit.

“Excellent garden with no admission charge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Beautiful garden with several walking paths. Mature collection of plants especially palms and cycads. Do not miss the Evolution Garden (mostly cycads & ferns amongst boulders)
There is now a MRT entrance at one of the back gates.
