Singapore Things to Do: 1,995 reviews and 3,531 photos


The Orchard Park in Singapore’s Botanic Gardens, a soothing getaway, is just minutes away from the shopping district on Orchard Road. It kind of prepares your Zen and restores your soul for the shopping to come It's a great place to people-watch. There's also a rainforest within the Botanic Gardens for your exploration.
The Botanic Gardens hold over half a million species of plant life spread over 52 hectares of land. The best time to visit the Botanic Gardens is early in the morning, when the air is cool and fresh. In the mornings, joggers, those practicing various forms of Chinese martial arts, and residents in the area walking their dogs love to converge there.
Admission to the Botanic Gardens is free. It is open from 5.00 a.m. to midnight everyday. On every 2nd Saturday of the month, there are free guided tours of the rainforest within the Botanic Gardens at 9.00 a.m., 10.00 a.m., 11.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. Meet at the Ranger Station. Contact Visitor Services at (65) 64717361 for more information.
