Open from 5am to 12mn, the 74 hectare Singapore Botanic Gardens is one of the most inspiring and truly remarkable place in Singapore.

It is an oasis of greenery, offering a quick escape to nature with the location so close to the city busiest shopping district.

I never had a chance to see the garden on my previous visit to Singapore until I started residing in the country and it has been a constant personal favorite weekend refuge.

The 150 years old Singapore Botanic Gardens is a vast nature sanctuary divided into 3 core areas – the heritage trail of Tanglin, the educational trail of Bukit Timah and the Central gardens.

Thus for anyone planning to visit, it is a must to make it more than just a shopping side trip and make sure you wear good comfortable shoes, bring enough water to survive the overwhelming afternoon heat and of course don’t forget to bring a good paperback and maybe a picnic mat too.

I love how inside the gardens I get to experience the colors of each season- the orange and red fallen leaves of Autumn, the white-shade and blue stillness of Winter, the sunny yellow petals of Spring and the bright greenery of Summer.

  1. I just had an assignment last week on Singapore, when I discovered the botanical gardens and immediately fell in love with it. Whenever I visit a new town, the botanical gardens are always a must-see! I’ve got to give it to you though, your awesome photos just make me want to pack my bags and get on a plane to Singapore right now!
