  • Just stunningly beautiful!! Such a lovely huge garden with style. Really enjoyed the orchids especially. They are thriving and so many!! JUST BEAUTIFUL!! If you love orchids you must not miss it. However do take care of the heat so best to go super early to beat the sun. We went at 1:30pm and I was drenched in sweat.
  • It’s beautiful! Saw a few roosters walking around. It’s a great place to just take a stroll. It has many benches along the way for you to sit and relax as well. We saw some people having picnic as well. Perfect for all ages!

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.
