Our taxi driver dropped us off here instead of the botanic gardens but this turned out to be a little gem. Very calm atmosphere with beautiful pagodas, lakes, and a lovely bonsai garden with some very ancient trees.

These gardens are a wonderful tourist attraction, and still you can see that they are enjoyed by the ordinary people from the neighborhood. They are cozy and fascinating in their architecture.

I live near the gardens and I love coming back here, taking a walk or cycling every week. Views are fantastic, it gets crowded but never noisy. People take a walk, run or cycle everywhere in the park. You can spot birds, butterflies and monkeys....More

Beautiful gardens just a short hop on the MRT to another world. We saw otters in the river, turtles, and a number of water monitors roaming about. A must see garden.

Lovely find, so tranquil. Really enjoyed it here. It’s a little MRT ride out but easy enough to get to and a short walk from the tram stop. The gardens are so well maintained

Take the MRT to Jurong and you reach a place hidden in Singapore. Chinese and Japanese garden is often visited by photographers for some nice photoshoots. As a landscape photographer your best best could be the tween pagodas. Definitely good place. The entry is free.

Chinese Garden – Singapore. The easiest way to the Chinese Garden in Singapore is by MRT that has a station just outside the garden. The station is rightly named Chinese Garden Station. The MRT (mass rapid transit) station entrance or the East Gate where the...More

So beautiful and tranquil. It's like an oasis of peace in the hustle and bustle of Singapore. We were quite impressed by how well-kept the gardens were, and that is is free entry for everyone.

A hidden gem in West Coast. Peace and tranquility. It takes around 1 hr to walk both gardens. So beautiful. No cafes as such so be prepared and bring some snacks and water with you

Absolutely! They go on now and best time is of course the night time when the lights come on. Alternatively there is one going on at Gardens by the bay, along with the lights for Diwali.
