Time Out says

Don't listen to what you hear in the songs – here's one waterfall you should be chasing. Located in the far West of Singapore is Yunnan Garden. Inspired by lush and landscaped traditional Chinese gardens, you'll find plenty of elements and features in this park that pay homage to the literature, culture and architecture. 

Start from the boardwalks at Nanyang Lake that will take you over and across and clear lake – keep your eyes peeled for fish and terrapins in the water as you make your down to Yunnan Garden. The main attraction of course is the 5.6-metre-tall waterfall at the heart of the park. There is an elevated viewing platform where you can get a clear view of the waterfall and the entire park grounds – but you can also stroll down the platform to get up close to the waterfall and artificial wetlands. 

The park is quite an educational one too – there are 19 routes and trails you can take, from the herbal and culinary trails to the art and literature trails. Along these designated trails, discover various plants, herbs and flowers that fit into the trail category. Don't want to cram your pretty little head with too much factoids? Take it easy and stroll around this serene park and check out the stone sculptures, little ponds and gazebos around the park before a photo opportunity at the Nantah Arch at the entrance of the gardens.
