Time Out Says

Established in 1859, the Gardens is a tranquil respite from the city buzz. This UNESCO World Heritage Site features attractions like a swan lake where visitors can feed the black Australian swans and the Evolution Garden Walk, a well-landscaped plot containing the fossilised remains of ancient trees. It's also home to the world's largest collection of orchids – some 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids, plus the national flower, Vanda Miss Joaquim – at the National Orchid Garden. During weekends, tours to its rainforest patch are available, while outdoor concerts are often held at Symphony Lake. And with the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden, where children can run wild and explore the farm, orchard, and forest which has its own stream and ponds, this nature spot is family-friendly.

Change the Present Save the Future Exhibition

  • Science and technology

  It's no secret that our little island nation is especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Even as Singapore continues to develop, much effort has gone into mitigating the effects of urbanisation, and to stave off the harmful impact of climate change. Find out what these efforts are at a new exhibition at Singapore Botanic Gardens. Jointly set up by City Developments Limited, NParks and Singapore Tourism Board, Change the Present Save the Future Exhibition showcases our climate change mitigation efforts, and ways everyone can play a part in building a resilient city.
