Hello to the green ,
Are you a park/garden folks? Are you falling in love with big green field? If you have a plan to visit the lion city, Singapore Botanic Garden is the answer (for me).
Singapore Botanic Garden (SBG) is located in Central Singapore and I visited SBG at 5pm (Singapore Time). In my opinion, the best time to visit SBG is in the afternoon (after 4pm) or in the morning (before 10am). I took the Circle Line to head up to the Botanic Gardens MRT (or else you can take the new Downtown Line and stop at Botanic Gardens MRT).
Arrived at Botanic Gardens MRT, Let’s start the walk from Bukit Timah Gate which is near from the Botanic Gardens MRT (Circle Line). No need an entrance fee to the Singapore Botanic Garden (but there will be another entrance fee for national orchid garden).
Bukit Timah Gate – Botanic Gardens MRT (Circle Line)
This garden is so magical, beauty and very breeze. Walking around from the Bukit Timah Gate, I found the Eco Lake. This place is super big and full of activities, a little family play the frisbee, kids play with their scooter, others just strolling around or sitting around the lake.
I followed the trail to the Symphony Lake. Take a rest for a while and just enjoying myself with the nature itself. If you’re lucky, you can catch a performance at Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage.
Done with a 15 minutes rest, head up to the Orchid Plaza. I found the National Orchid Garden, which means for orchid lovers you should visit this. If you want to visit the orchid garden you have to pay the entrance fee around SGD $5 for adults.
If you’re thirsty or a lil bit hungry and need snack, find Provisions (a takeaway cafe). Provisions is located not far from the National Orchid Garden, so you can top up your energy for a while.
SBG is so big and I didn’t explore the whole SBG because not have much time on that day and too tired. If you have a plan to explore the whole SBG let me know, what kind of thing I should find for the next visit. (For more information visit Singapore Botanic Gardens site)
