One could easily spend a whole day here. The gardens are huge, you will need to wear comfortable footwear (I would suggest running trainers to be honest as my plimsol trainers didn't cut it) as there will be a LOT of walking involved! Take a camera with sufficient memory as you are likely to take a lot of photos! The... More

A place well worthy of its world class status. The gardens were spotless, beautifully maintained and attention given to every details in the park. Well presented signboards give interesting historical background to the flora as well its history and development. The National Orchid Garden should not be missed either.

Botanic Gardens are a nice place to walk and chill for a few hours. I would not say is the best experience of my life, but definitely is worth the time, free to enter and cheap exposition. Beautiful gardens to walk around.

We stayed at the marina bay sands on our last night and the botanical garden is conveniently located in the area. We visited it at night and during the day it was amazing I highly recommend it. Definitely a must when in Singapore .

This garden really lives up to its name. 158 years old, spanning 78 hectars and a UNESCO heritage site, it houses many different types of plants and it houses the largest orchid collection of 1,200 species and 2,000 hybrids. A great place to relax and recommended for all tourists! Be sure to check it out when visiting Singapore!

Singapore botanic gardens was the highlight for me when returning to Singapore after 10 years. In a nutshell: lots of tropical gardens, tall leafy green trees, shadey spots to chill out, green grass, beautifully landscaped terraces, lots of different tracks heading into forest or through different gardens, a stunning collection of orchids! Start your trip early in the morning to... More

We spent a lovely peaceful morning walking around the Botanical Gardens. It's probably best to visit early before the main heat of the day kicks in as there is a reasonable amount of walking. It's easy to get to using the MRT or "Hop On / Hop Off Bus", so don't believe the reviews that say you need to go... More

The exhibition at the garden was magnificent. I never thought of myself as a flower enthusiast but this experience nearly brought me to tears! The music combined with the quiet was the best soul food ever. Not too full, though I'm glad I went early 9 am. Easy to find in the MRT, very reasonably priced too

I can only imagine how old the trees are as I am deeply breathing and enjoying fresh air! Walking through the rain forest or looking at the swan lake I am grateful to be here. It is obvious you will need walking shoes if you decide to do this but I was surprised to see people wearing heels. We arrived... More
