You love nature, don't you? Why waiting then, your nature trail starts immediately upon arrival, right in the airport...
Butterfly Garden is a "crown jewel" of the Changi Airport nature trail. Although small, it's two story high and is a wonderful and relaxing place to visit before or after your flight.
Orchid Garden and its Koi fish pond are in the middle of Terminal 2. It's a small but really beautiful and relaxing place which is well worth a visit before a flight.
That's an unusual one. The tiny garden imitates an enchanted forest with mysterious forms and sounds. It's well worth 10 minutes of your time before a long flight.
If you have the time to visit only one place in Singapore, I'd recommend National Orchid Garden. For just $SG5 you'll find such a variety of beautiful orchids as nowhere else.
They are HUGE! So much to see... You can easily spend a full day there and then return for more. The gardens are open from sunrise to sunset and the admission is free!
The garden is a children's playground inside S'pore Botanic Gardens. Not only it's a fun place for kids but also a safe one with a security guard stationed near the entrance.
Built on land reclaimed from the sea, Gardens by the Bay is one of the best attractions in Singapore. They are even bigger than Botanic Gardens and are full of wonders.
Cloud Forest is a "multi-story" pavilion inside Gardens by the Bay. Its "sky walk" is must do when visiting the gardens.
Flower Dome is an artistic greenhouse pavilion in Gardens by the Bay.
Singapore Zoo is one of the most animal friendly zoos in the world. As such, it's large and not the easiest one to navigate through. The place features a great variety of animals and is fun to visit.
Night Safari happens when those nocturnal animals are active while you might be a bit sleepy. It has various levels of "difficulty" from staying on the tram all the time to alighting on every station and walking a night trail to observe the animals more closely.
River Safari is a unique attraction in Singapore which includes a boat ride on a lake, an aquarium, and a small zoo. It's a fun activity for children and adults alike and, although small, their zoo includes some rare and beautiful species of animals and birds.
Jurong Bird Park is a zoo which is entirely dedicated to birds. It has several aviaries (one huge and a few smaller ones) but rest of the birds still suffer in their cages. We can only hope that they will be moved to one of the aviaries in the future. If you like birds (who doesn't :-)?), the place is for you.
Bukit Timah is a small nature reserve right in the middle of the city. It contains an untouched forest with some small wild animals roaming free. Monkeys feel at home there and it's one of the places where you can watch them in their natural habitat.
Chinese and Japanese Gardens lay on islands of Jurong Lake. The gardens are quite spacious and interesting to stroll around and enjoy their manicured nature and statues.
The Turtle Museum is actually a small zoo where turtles lay around, walk and swim undisturbed. I haven't seen that many anywhere else and they can be fun to watch especially for children. Although really small, this "turtle zoo" is worth its $SG5 admission ticket.
The Southern Ridges is one of the best nature trails in Singapore. It combines different terrains and scenery: from two canopy walks on different heights to Kent Ridge and Hort parks as well as Mount Faber.
Mount Faber offers some great views of Singapore from high above. There is also a very nice park on top of it and a cable car going to Sentosa. It can be visited either by itself or as part of a trail across Southern Ridges.
Hort Park is one of the "gardening hubs" of Singapore. It's best to be visited as part of the trail across Southern Ridges.
Jurong Eco-Garden is one of the hidden gems of Singapore. I actually found it by accident when visiting Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle. It's a relatively small park with free admission and some interesting features like stone sculptures and a nature trail.
South East Asia Aquarium is one of the best attractions on Sentosa and the main gem of its "nature trail". The tickets are not cheap but the aquarium is well worth the price.
Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon include a small aquarium, a koi pond, and, of course, Dolphin Lagoon with marine animal shows for kids.
Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom is a small zoo on Sentosa with some insects, reptilians, parrots, and other birds. It's not something spectacular but still can be a fun place for children.
Sentosa Nature Discovery is one of the few free attractions on Sentosa. It includes a small but educational nature museum and a very nice forest trail with a short canopy walk.
