Singapore Botanic Gardens stretching over 80 hectares of land was founded more than 150 years ago and now attracts millions of visitors from all over the world. This unique tropical garden includes famous National Orchid Garden, Ginger, Healing and Sun Gardens, Sundial Garden and the Palm Valley, three lakes and other fascinating places.

The garden also features outdoor sculptures and installations by contemporary artists. Don’t miss a 3 metre tall bronze and steel sculpture by American artist James Surls called ‘Fifty Wings’, a symbol of the 50 years of Singapore’s Independence.

The Rainforest is another unique eco-system within the Botanic Gardens formed with grass, ferns, rattan trees and more than 314 other species of plants. Some trees are 50 metres tall and have been growing here since 1819 when Singapore was founded. By the way, amidst the greenery of the Ginger Garden you will find ‘The Halia’, a restaurant perfect for a relaxed lunch or romantic dinner.

Entrance to Singapore botanic gardens is free except for National Orchid Garden.

Key info: In 2015 Singapore Botanic Gardens became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These green gardens offer explorers a treasure trove of walking trails waiting to be discovered.
