    The best part of this garden is in the historic Tanglin core zone with colonial layout, orchid garden, authentic small rain forest, charming bandstand, lovely Swan Lake, a good place to relax.

    Probably the best botanic garden. Very comfortable space to walk and feel the nature. Don't forget to take water and umbrella. Beware of rain. The evolution park is really impressive.

    Garden sculptures. They add beauty to the garden. See if you spot Girl on a Swing, Swing Me Mama & Chang Kuda, amongst of the foliage -- some hidden right in front of u ;-)

    A huge botanical garden that seems to stretch on forever. It's very easy to get lost in here, so bring a map and tons of water. The shrill hum of the locusts just about made my ears bleed.

    What a gem in Singapore! Must check out the orchid garden ($5 admission totally worth it), the Fragrance garden and the Herbs & Spices garden. Avoid during wet weather.

    This one of the most peaceful and greenest gardens that Singapore has to offer. Located at 1 Cluny Road, this is the best place to take that early morning walk and even some tai-chi. Opens at 5 am.

    Perfect all day long. Morning and evening is perfect for running, the days for walks and picnics. Some good restaurants available as well. Sundays can be busy.

    Spend a day exploring The Singapore Botanic Gardens. Founded in 1859, it was recently designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, making it the first and only tropical botanic garden on the list.

    Great gardens fairly close to Orchard Rd. Don't miss the National Orchard Garden! Enter from Botanic Garden station. Exit at Tanglin Gate and take any of the busses to Orchard Rd in front of the Gate.
  • Elliot W.
    The Gardens are a great place to relax and go for a stroll or jog. Evolution garden, sundial garden, ginger garden, the lake - it's all good.
  • Jeffrey S.
    This is the largest and well designed botanic gardens I have ever seen. Definitely, need to visit this attraction while in Signapore. It could take all day to go through the attraction.

    The exit to the Botanic Gardens MRT is at Bukit Timah Road, all the way at the other end of the park from the usual entrance at Holland Road. It's about 2.2 km from one to the other.

    No wheels of any sorts allowed (cycling, skating/blading, scooter). They turn a blind eye when it's toddlers on a kiddy bike :-)

    While here make sure to visit the National Orchids Garden. With hundreds of different varieties, its a green thumb's dream! Bring a blanket and stay for the concerts in Palm Valley.

    Great place for picnics and lazy Sundays. Can be crowded and hot. Hang out at the gazebos to escape the heat. Note: bring drinks and food!

    perfect even for a late morn jog, as most parts are well shaded. start from visitor's centre in a clockwise direction toward the famous front gates - each round is 2km. go as many times as u require.
