Singapore Botanic Gardens green path through the gardens

The Botanic Gardens offers many fascinating worlds for visitors to explore. Step into the cool surrounds of a primary tropical forest, with more than 50% of the species representing rare plants in Singapore. Or check out the Ginger Garden, Fragrant Garden, Bonsai Garden or Healing Garden to understand how plants are cultivated and used for therapies, food and aesthetics.

There are also several lakes in the Gardens, home to wildlife like fish, turtles and swans. Perhaps the most famous of these is Swan Lake, named after the pair of white swans that make their home on that lake. And at Symphony Lake, you can see free live music performances, from big band tunes to classical music. The lake houses a purpose-built stage, set among lily pads, and a vast green slope where everyone is welcome to bring a picnic blanket, wine, cheese and great company to listen to music under the stars. 

Finally, reward yourself for getting some exercise walking around the Gardens by stopping by one of the food and beverage outlets located within the premises – there's nothing like a verdant view for enhancing your enjoyment of a meal!
