Singapore - Botanic Gardens

Another green oasis worth a visit in Singapore is the Botanic Gardens. Located just a stone's throw away from Orchard Road, it is easily accessible. The garden is open from 5.00 a.m. to 12.00 mid night, so very convenient.

The Garden covers an area of around 52 hectares. It is huge for the land-scarce island of Singapore. There are many attractions including 3 lakes, an orchidarium, a mini-rainforest,  a ginger garden, etc. 

If you don't have much time, head to the entrance at Holland Road. Take a quick walk around the Swan Lake, then head back to the Green Pavilion for a nice cold drink. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours and get some much needed exercise.

If you are into nature photography, the Garden provide great photo-opps.

OMG those pictures are breathtaking! Thanks for visiting my blog too :) I am getting ready to have my 9th open house a that means my 9th Indonesian Rijsttafel. Is there anything new and trendy you can suggest? I unuslly do Nasi, rendang, chicken curry, gado gado, satey, meatballs a few I can't remember and some Dutch dishes. It's a buffet so it has to have holding power.

Hi Andrea. Have you tried making Thai Salads ? I find that they are really refreshing and gives a bit of variety to the meaty dishes. My favourite is Green Papaya Salad, Green Mango Salad, Thai Seafood Salad with Tang Hung, etc.
