Dating back to 1860, the gardens feature a herbarium, frangipanis and the kind of rainforest jungle that once covered the island. Dotted in-between are sculptures, a bandstand, fountains and a visitor center.
You’ll also find the National Orchid Garden here, with both tropical and cooler-climate varieties providing bursts of exotic color.
Garden tours highlight the collection’s rainforest and orchids. You might also like to drop into the gardens to catch a free open-air music concert or opera.
Great tour. Was able to see Singapore in a day. The National Orchid Gardens were amazing!
A good way to start your holidays in Singapore for first time visitors. Nice guide, well conducted tour a bit rushed though. Would have loved if we had a little more time at the Gems factory and botanic gardens. On the whole a nice experience of getting acquainted to a new city. Flyer a must (Whether you include it with this tour or do it on your own)
