"An Ancient Rainforest near Orchard Road" Top 5 Page for this destination Singapore Off The Beaten Path Tip by bpacker
Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 432 reviews and 573 photos
Other than Rio De Janerio, Singapore is the only other city in the world that has an ancient rainforest right in the heart of the city !
It is true, the Botanic Gardens is the original piece of jungle left on this island and it is just a stone's throw from Orchard Road.
While it does not have any hunk in a loin cloth, it does give its visitors an insight on the rare plants and local animal life in Singapore. There is a thriving population of monkeys over there and if you're lucky, you might just catch a glimpse of those furry human-like creatures.
