Spent an afternoon exploring the gardens and walking around. The gardens were so peaceful and a perfect place to escape the busy city atmosphere. We were lucky it was a dry day however quite humid but lots of water stations around to top up your water bottles. Also good facilities on site. Entry was also free. Would definitely recommend.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens is well-kept and has numerous areas to explore within the garden grounds. I especially love to go for leisure runs or when they are free concerts at the Symphony Lake. Do be mindful of the limited parking lots on popular days like concert days and why not go earlier to take a walk around the pretty... More

Nicest in the morning around 7am where it's cool and quiet. Sightings of monitor lizard, swans at swan lake, catfish, koi, etc. Yesterday's sighting of an Oriental Pied Hornbill was a surprise. Lovely clusters of blooming Vanda Miss Joaquim near the bandstand (Nassim Gate).

I had been here years ago when there were monkeys in the grounds. Was encouraged by a resident to return and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Took heaps of photos of orchards and the gardens in general. A great break from the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road. Staff in the gift shop were very friendly... More

A real nice part of the Botanic Garden! Very well-planned and well-organized, and an enormous number of orchids to see. A must for anyone interested in orchids!

Lovely place to stroll through. It is free to enter and currently has trees of the world which individually decorated Christmas trees. The Orchid garden which is FABULOUS has an admission fee for tourists, but it is only S$5. Recommended to everyone as the number one place to go in Singapore.

We have visited Botanical Gardens all over the world - and this is one of the finest! So many areas I cannot list them all. I could spend a week here and not be bored. And they have several nice places to eat - as varied as the flora - and two shops. My favourite is the one by the... More

A beautiful garden within minutes from Orchard Road and suitable for all ages. The best time to visit is early morning to feel the dew or early evening to feel the sunset rays thru the trees. The trees and plants are from Asia, some are planted many many years ago. The orchid garden within is simply awesome. There are seats... More
