The garden is one large oasis for a long but tranquil walk. Who doesn't love the nature? There could be no scenery without it.

The entrance is free. The greenery here is overwhelming, even just before entering its gigantic gates. I have enjoyed every flowers I saw. Each plant, flowers and trees are labeled with its scientific names and where they came from, i know no one cares for brain exercise now. But it would still be nice to know even if you will not remember it anymore as soon as you turn your back at them 2. If you are with children, it would be educational and would be more appreciative, I bet.

The garden consists a forest, lake and themed gardens like the Ginger Garden and the Orchid Garden. There is a $5 entrance in Orchid Garden. You will see a vast species of orchids. If I remember if right, orchids is also Singapore's national flower. You will enjoy the lovely collection of orchids here blooming with its different colors and fragrance. I don't smell anything fragrant though when I smell orchids but it is said to have been studied for a potential perfume chemical.

Below are also themed gazebos, where you can just sit and relax. Absolutely no littering! (≧◡≦)

There are also restaurants inside so no need to worry if your stomach screams in hunger. You will probably experience hunger if you happen not to eat when you go. It's a longer walk than you can imagine. Make sure to bring a bottle of water. Although there's plenty of shades alongside, it is advisable. A good weather in Singapore will prolly mean hot but at the same time bright.

I've been there about three times already. I would advise not to come on Sundays. But if you love the crowd, I don't see a point why I'm saying this. Enjoy! (◠‿◠)✌
