  • I didn’t get to see the whole garden but it was beautiful! I loved the lakes and amazing flowers all around. They were celebrating Christmas by planting 100 trees and that was amazing ! There are these beautiful vintage lamps that I just couldn’t get over. It’s a Great Walk and the park is detailed with little graphics of information and signage is very helpful. One of the free attractions of the city! I recommend going for a picnic and chilling in the gazebos after taking short walks all around :)
  • What a park! Lots of plants are seen their. The attracted things are their that the plants are maintain properly and classified them based on their medicinal properties. Even the name of the specific site is different. It was really a very charming and recommended place. If you have time please go their and enjoy the beauty of nature.

The country’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site is a showcase of spectacular tropical flora. There are also many idyllic photo spots throughout the Gardens such as Swan Lake and The Bandstand gazebo. Set in lush greenery, the 158-year-old Singapore Botanic Gardens is the country’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only tropical botanic garden on the list. Its impressive, ornate main gate is a not-to-be-missed photo opportunity. It boasts four pillars and supporting swinging gates framing a cast-aluminium lattice of Bauhinia kockiana, the climber planted at the fencing just beside it. Inside, the gardens is a showcase of spectacular tropical flora, with various species of plants and flowers that makes beautiful photo backdrop.
