“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

If you are looking for an oasis of quiet in the bustle of a major city, then you must go here. Its only drawback is that the place is very big and in the heat of Singapore, it was difficult to get round in an afternoon. The MRT station is also on the edge of the gardens making the walk quite long.However the gardens have something for everyone. We particularly liked the lake full of turtles and also the rain forest walk which was full of critters and birds and small mammels. Might be better to visit later in the day.

“Good for holidays life”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

As you know well, there are not so much nature in Singapore.
If you want to touch nature, you should go to Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Not only nature, but also attraction, for example, there is concert stage at centre of Botanic Gardens, so sometimes you can enjoy concert of orchestra.
It is good for Singapore residents on holiday life.

“Refreshing nature excursion”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

I must say, compared to my previous day excursion to Gardens by the Bay's domes, this place has a much more natural feel to it and is quite relaxing.

It is very desirable to have a picnic there, if only I lived in Singapore.

I loved the tropical rainforest section, despite it being a secondary rainforest which is not the best place to learn about rainforests in reality.

One thing to point out is I've found that the air is not that fresh there. I've had better at the Merlion park.

“Great Greenery”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The Singapore Botanic Gardens are a great place to visit. They are well sign-posted so that you can easily walk to all the areas you are interested in. The maintenance of the gardens is exceptional so all plants & exhibits are in fantastic shape. We visited twice during our stay & still didn't see everything, so this is a great place to go back to if you have time.
