I spent 4 hours there leisurely walking and checking everything out! I really enjoyed it! Such a rare spot for nature in Singapore. So many big lizards around and a very very interesting turtle museum! And all the bonsai trees in the Japanese Garden. It's one of a very few places that are not crowded on the weekends in Singapore:)

It's nice to see this big and green garden amidst the densely populated Jurong Town. We can view both gardens conveniently as they are linked via a nice oriental bridge. It's a great place for exercise, phototaking,family bonding, picniking etc. The landscape and architecture befits the culture and history of the two gardens. People can also enjoy the panoramic view... More

We went early afternoon on a bright sunny day. The buildings are just stunning against a blue sky. Free to enter and see the well kept gardens. Easy to get to on the MRT. You can climb the large pagoda quite a few steep steps but the views are great.There is so much to see around every corner. Take a... More

This huge park is outside the chinese garden mrt station. Entry is free and will take you an hour or two to walk the whole place. Many monitor lizards are present there and there is also a turtle museum (entry fee require) inside the park. Do fit up yourself with jogging shoes for a walk here. Directly across the park... More

This was our favourite place during 3 days in Singapore. We visited in the morning when there seemed to be not many people about. A must place to visit. Well maintained gardens, the Bonsai trees are stunning. Lots of birds and quite a few Malaysian Water Monitors in the ponds and lakes.

We caught the train early morning to visit. It is a lovely peaceful garden full of topiary and Chinese/ Japanese landscaping. Lovely trees pergodas bridges and houses, but there is not much shade from the sun

An older style open park with oriental gardens and buildings. It was one of the first gardens built in Singapore , hence a little dated. Nevertheless it is interesting and a good place for an evening walk .

The Chinese and Japanese Gardens are the gardens to go to relax in the evening, sitting by the lake or under the pavilion or go for a jog. The two gardens are situated next to each other on two little islands connected via a bridge with both islands connected to the main island. The Chinese Garden is modeled along the... More
