Singapore Botanic Gardens: a green jewel in the city's heart


The only tropical garden that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is a breath of fresh air, just beyond the city centre.

This 156-year-old tropical forest is a must. Early birds will appreciate it as the sunrise's first rays of light hit the marina. The tropical garden in the heart of the park is home to over 10,000 different species of flowers and stretches over 82 hectares. After a refreshing break at the lakes, lose yourself in the gardens of bamboo and bonsai. Proceed through the Sun Garden, where you will see cactus, yuccas, and other plants from arid climates. The highlight of the walk is the famous orchid garden. The collection of some 1,000 species is alone worth the visit. The children's garden is also a delight. The atmosphere is very peaceful, and the plethora of colours is spectacular.
