The Singapore Botanic Gardens is without a doubt one of the best places in the world. I’ve been — and loved — a lot of botanical gardens in the States, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Ithaca and Berkeley, but this one is so far in a league of its own it’s insane. I took hundreds of photos, so this post will be broken into two parts.
The layout is so beautiful and easy to navigate and there are so many special little zones, like the romantic orchid gardens, the indoor “cool” forest, a cute children’s garden, a restaurant I wish I had the money to afford, an outdoor concert hall, super cool outdoor bathrooms, and the bromeliad garden (pineapples!). It was like an intensely fragrant zoo without any animals. Also, it’s free. Best thing in Singapore.
