Parks and Gardens in Singapore
You’ll not want for natural attractions in Singapore. As with many other facets of the City-State, Singapore’s Nature Parks are extremely well organised and planned. Singapore Night Safari has many fascinating draws, as does the zoo and the Underwater World. The Jurong Bird Park is justifiably world famous and another big draw is the Reptile Park.
Gardens by the Bay
Located in Marina Bay Park near the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel, this gorgeous 26 hectare green space not only features broad views of the bay and Singapore skyline but includes some of the city’s most inviting gardens and grounds.
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
Bukit Timah Hill is Singapore's highest point, at a mere 163 metres. The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is a 164-hectare primary rain forest reserve just a half-hour ride from the heart of the city. Here you can breathe in the sights, smells and sounds of an authentic primary forest as you walk. The place also boasts of an abundant wildlife - watch out for the noisy long-tailed macaque!
Singapore Butterfly & Insect Kingdom
Fans of butterflies and insects will enjoy the Butterfly & Insect Kingdom, located on Sentosa Island. It features about 3,000 species of butterflies and insects with an exhibition hall explaining their life cycle as well as an informative frame collection.
Chinese and Japanese Gardens
The Chinese and Japanese Gardens are off Yuan Ching Road, and adjoin Jurong Bird Park. Stroll around the Chinese Garden and take in the majestic stone lions at the entrance, the stoneboat, the towering pagodas and the statue of Confucius. Marvel at the rockeries in the Garden of Romance and breathe in the smell of the culinary and medicinal herbs in the Herb Garden
