The Singapore Botanic Garden

It is a garden within a busy city and a hiding place from the hectic hustle of the city life. The Singapore Botanic Garden combines the primary forest with its collection of botanical and horticultural plants. It is “MUST” visit if you are like flowers and plants. It also a good place for a family pinic and a getway from the city life. Evolution Garden is the newest attraction to the Singapore Botanic Garden which occupy 1.5 hectares. You could learn from the Evolution Garden how plants support the eco-systems, how long have arrived amd how they evolve into the various shapes and forms that we see today. It can be an educational journey for the whole family – old or young.
Other attractions such as the Eco-Lake and the Symphony Lakes will make the children happy as they are alive with fishes, swans, turtles and other creatures. Occasionally, outdoor concerts are also held near the Symphony Lake.
There are also the Herbaruium and Library that are open for botanical and horticultural enquiries. They also conduct Gardening courses, education tours and workshops for the public at a charge.
