If gardens, flowers, lush, green lawns perfect for picnics is your passion then the Botanical Gardens in Singapore will not disappoint. This 74-hectare horticultural wonder is a peaceful haven and urban escape.
Along with the serene open spaces, visitors will also find a National Orchid Garden which maintains a collection of more than a thousand species and 2,000 hybrids of Orchids (including Singapore’s pink-hued national flower), while three lakes, a botany center, and a ginger garden offer opportunities for eco-education.
The Botanical Gardens is also home to many birds, insects, and animals offering unlimited photo opportunities. The Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage also calls the gardens home and is located on Symphony Lake where there is an occasional free concert offered on weekends.
