Walked through the park on our way to look at Orchids. It is a beautiful park, clean and well run. Totally unexpected just metres from the underground. And so big! Could easily have spent much longer just wandering around. No charge for access. Great!

There's a big lake with an area full of fish and turtles that's really amazing to see. Bring some coins so you can buy food to feed them with. Also bring an umbrella...it can unexpectedly rain and there's not a lot of cover

The gardens are a lovely way to walk about out of the city life I would highly recommend a visit to the Orchid Gardens as well (there is an entrance fee) but it is worth it - some of the most beautiful colours I have seen

The National Botanical Garden is a great place to visit. Set aside a couple of hours at least. Long walks, wonderful collection of plants, trees - and orchids. The Orchid Garden is a must visit. They have a couple of Black Swans at the Echo Lake, unfortunately could not see them, seemed to be hiding!! Must visit when in Singapore

Pretty cool place to check out for a morning or afternoon. It's free so if you're on a budget this is a good activity to keep you occupied. It's huge so be sure to wear some decent walking shoes. Beautiful place, definitely worth a visit.

The garden is nice. If you have a longer stay or live there, it is a great place to relax. If you compare it to other botanical gardens it is not an extraordinary beautiful park/garden. You have to pay extra for the orchid garden

Very well thought out and kept. It was such a beautiful place and very professionally done. Lots of walking (allow at least 1/2 day), but definitely worth the visit. Make sure that you have a look at the labs near the main entrance. The library also has a comprhensive collection of pressed plant specimens.

A well laid out lovely nature escapade right in the heart of the city. The pathways are clean and easily accessed with plenty of themed gardens such as Ginger, orchids and so on. Some portions require fees to enter but otherwise, there's plenty to see even if you don't plan to spend a few dollars. Check with the reception at... More

This is my second or third visit to these gardens, and I spent a beautiful few hours connecting with nature here in the middle of a big city. These gardens are so well designed and the upkeep is magnificent. The Orchid Garden is always a special treat, with a riot of colour, and beautifully arranged settings for use as backdrops... More

The orchid garden was the most impressive of the areas we walked. Everything was beautifully maintained. Took quite some time to get a cab afterwards back to our hotel...the line was long.
