  • Interesting place, not so much for the botanical interest (mostly common species of various climates) but for the aesthetic taste of the compositions of plants. Large artificial trees are spectacular, all a bit from "Wonderland" in style with the city

  • Very impressive botanical garden with cold storage for orchids from higher mountain slopes after many celebrities have been named orchids

  • One of the best tropical botanical gardens in the world. Return visit after an gap of over 20 years. Much have improved for the visitor experience, especially since the UNESCO award recently. Great retreat from the hubbub of the city. Almost feels like a different world. Tip would be to go early in the mornings before the heat of the day. They open very early (530am?) It is an amazing experience wandering the trails and listening to the jungle wake up! As fair critique, signage and access for the mobility impaired could improve. For example, there appears to be only 1 elevator from the underground parking garage. Was out of service during visit and no alternatives were provided. Spent a lot of time wandering the warm and humid garage with poor signage. When this was pointed out to the staff, the response received was "but there are stairs you can use" ... In the garden trails, mobility access routes could be better signed and ramp\step edges marked.
  • A true hidden treasure inside Singapore. Everyone now goes to the flashier Gardens by the Bay, but the Botanic Gardens are equally good! And the best part is - all of it is free! An extraordinary delight inside the garden is the orchid garden (the only place where you need to buy a ticket - nominally priced) - do check it out! You'll be more than surprised!
  • Various different trees. Great for run or walk. The orchid garden inside the botanic garden has a entrance fee but full of amazing variety of orchids. Especially during Chinese New Year and National Day you can spot amazing flora!
  • Lots of gardens and plants to see whatever the time of the year. Basically all for free which is amazing. Definitely worth a visit but be prepared to be hot and bring suncream. There are water fountains dotted around to refill bottles. The orchid gardens were definitely worth the money too. I would recommend for all ages you can spend ages there.
  • Most beautiful place I have ever been. It makes you feel as you are the part of the nature and responsible for everything you do because it makes a small step to make something amazing like this. And to keep it. I don't have many photos to add, I just enjoyed it and forgot about everything else.
