  • A must go for tourists if you have the time. Bring hat/umbrella and good walking shoes! Relaxing and Refreshing. Enjoy the greenery and foliage. Also a good place for exercise or jogging or brisk walking! ENJOY😊
  • If you're in Singapore you must visit this place. Spectacular. One of the nicest gardens I've been to. A UNESCO Heritage site. Has a fantastic collection of orchids and other local specialties. Very nice food at the central restaurant. Go early, it's very large and amazing in the morning.

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.
