  • 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.
  • Gorgeous gardens, beautifully kept and maintained. Plenty of path ways throughout. Gardens have many different spaces with a wide variety of plant and tree types, a lot of wildlife scattered around too. Just a shame we couldn't spend longer there. Loved the orchid gardens the most, absolutely massive variety in orchids

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.
