For more than a century and a half, Singapore’s Botanic Gardens have led the world in orchid research, while providing an expansive natural landscape in the heart of the city. Today, the gardens are one of only a few green spaces left in the densely populated downtown area, and are frequented by residents and tourists alike for the relaxing escape they provide. Spanning over 183 acres (74 hectares), the Singapore Botanic Gardens provide a great day out for nature lovers and families. Visitors to the gardens can discover local species of plants, a vast range of wildlife and an excellent location for a picnic.
The gardens open before sunrise so arrive early to beat the heat and enjoy some quiet time before crowds arrive. Listen to native birds sing and watch the sun rise from above the trees. Singapore is one of only two cities in the world that is home to a tropical rainforest; garden visitors will discover a dense canopy that provides shelter from the sun.
Explore the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden with the family, an excellent educational and interactive center for all ages. Children can enjoy the water play area or discover the process of photosynthesis. Make your way to the National Orchid Garden to find over 1,000 species of orchids. The center is considered one of the world leaders in orchid research and has created more than 2,000 hybrids.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens are located in downtown Singapore and can be reached by car, taxi or public transportation. Visitors arriving by bus can reach the gardens on a number of different routes. Parking is available for a fee or there is public parking on Tyersall Avenue. The Singapore Botanic Gardens are open daily and admission is free. There is a small fee to enter the National Orchid Garden within the grounds.
