Singapore's oldest garden and the the first UNESCO Heritage Site in Singapore.

The sprawling grounds of the Botanic Gardens is a popular place to have a leisurely stroll, picnic, or to engage in recreational activities. It's a great place where children can learn about plants and horticulture as well as appreciate the beauty of nature.



Jacob Ballas Children's Garden

The Jacob Ballas Children's Garden is the first and biggest garden in Asia that is dedicated to children. Kids absolutely love this place as there are so many things to explore and learn here!

National Orchid Garden

Over 1,000 species and 2,000 hydrids of orchids bloom in splendor here.

Rain Forest

A primary tropical forest covering six hectares and containing a multi-layered ecosystem of herb, ferns, climbers, shrubs, and trees.

Ginger Garden

The Ginger Garden houses several hundred species of gingers and other plants from related families. The picturesque grounds with its waterfall and pool filled with giant Amazon water lilies makes it a popular destination for visitors.

Ethnobotany Garden

The garden showcases over 300 species of plants that are deeply rooted into traditional cultures of the Malay Archipelago, Indochina, and South Asia.

Centred around a water body, the garden is divided into four zones. Visitors can learn about the various plants in each zone, and how they are used traditionally by indigenous communities of this region.
