Why Singapore Botanic Gardens is special ?

Complementing the unique resources are sensitive developments and entertainment events, the Singapore Botanic Gardens  provides visitors educational and recreational facilities amidst the wonders of nature. It is the most visited botanic gardens in the world and is a unique example of the informal English Landscape Movement’s style in an equatorial climate.

What to explore at Singapore Botanic Gardens?

The Botanical Gardens are also home to a rare patch of dense primeval rainforest, accessible via an atmospheric boardwalk. Older than the gardens themselves, the rainforest is home to over 300 species of vegetation, over half of which are now (sadly) considered rare in Singapore.

The SBG Heritage Museum features interactive and multimedia exhibits and panels that detail the Gardens' rich heritage, while the CDL Green Gallery displays botanical related exhibits.

Kids will have a blast at the Jacob Ballas Children’s garden where they can play and learn all about plant life. A host of restaurants and cafes are also available to satisfy thirsty and hungry visitors after a day out in the sun.

And once you’re ready to step back into the concrete jungle, the Orchard Road shopping district is mere minutes away.

While here make sure to visit the National Orchids Garden. With hundreds of different varieties, its a green thumb's dream! Bring a blanket and stay for the concerts in Palm Valley.
