Don't miss out on Singapore's hidden green wonderlands! Discover these four picturesque gardens

Singapore is one of the cities with the highest degree of greening in the world. Not only does nearly half of its land area have green vegetation, but every building in the city is filled with greenery, making Singapore known as the "City in a Garden". If you want to explore nature here and enjoy the unique green scenery and diverse vegetation and species from around the world, we recommend four must-visit places where you can experience the beauty of this garden city.

Mount Faber Park

Mount Faber is the second highest mountain range in Singapore, about 115 meters high, and it is rich in natural greenery. Along the winding trails up the mountainside, visitors can enjoy the refreshing benefits of breathing in all the fresh air. It is a popular place for locals to take walks, exercise during the day, and go see the night views. If you're feeling up for it, you can start at the Telok Blangah Hill Park and walk up the trail to see the famous "Henderson Waves Bridge", which has been listed as one of the top ten strange bridges in the world.

The Henderson Waves Bridge connects Telok Blangah Hill Park and Mount Faber and is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore. Its bridge body is like a wave, cleverly set up rest pavilions between the undulating curves, which visually enhances its dynamic beauty. It is also one of Singaporeans' favorite places to rest. Visitors can start from here and walk all the way to Mount Faber while enjoying the natural scenery of Singapore along the way.

Gardens by the Bay

Zone 2A & 2B: Kingfisher Cascades

Gardens by the Bay is known as the "Central Park of Asia". Its "Supertree Grove" is composed of more than 10 towering trees that are over 23 meters high and is one of Singapore's representative landmarks. The Supertrees serve multiple purposes such as providing a stunning landscape and environmental benefits. At night, when the lights come on, the dotted and hazy lights make you feel as if you are in a world like Avatar. Visitors can purchase tickets to walk along the OCBC Skyway, which connects the Supertree Grove and enjoy the details of the Supertrees up close from a height of 22 meters, overlook every corner of Gardens by the Bay, and also see the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. This is also a recommended location to appreciate Singapore's evening glow.

At night, visitors should not miss the daily "OCBC Garden Rhapsody" light show at 7:45 pm and 8:45 pm. Combining music with light effects, the Supertree Grove transforms into a magical wonderland at night. The LED lights on the Supertrees continuously change, making it seem like you are in a starry universe. The show also changes the performance effects and music content irregularly, so every time you watch it, you have a completely new experience.

Singapore Zoo

Look up and see the orangutans on the trees! If you want to get up close with wildlife, you must visit the "Singapore Zoo", one of the four major zoos in Singapore which also include the Asian-themed "River Safari", the world's first "Night Safari" and Southeast Asia's largest "Jurong Bird Park". As the four parks are not far apart, visitors can even purchase packages and spend a whole day playing from morning till night. It is a must-visit place for animal lovers.

The "Singapore Zoo" is known as the "Best Rainforest Zoo in the World", covering an area of 26 hectares. It features more than 300 species and nearly 30,000 animals from around the world, ranging from kings of the forest to reptiles, providing visitors with an amazing sight. To bring new experiences to visitors, the "Retopia Reptile and Amphibian Area" has reopened at the end of May. Visitors can see over 60 exotic species from around the world, including the rarest blue dart frog and reticulated python, some of which are even endangered species. This is hoped to raise visitors' awareness of conservation of reptiles.

Singapore Botanic Gardens

The Singapore Botanic Gardens covers an area of over 240,000 square meters and is a popular destination for local residents to relax and unwind. It was originally an abandoned plantation until it was revitalized by the local Agricultural Horticultural Society in 1859 and became a vibrant tourist attraction with diverse green landscapes. With vast lawns, a swan lake nestled within the gardens, and meandering paths, visitors can enjoy various shades of green interwoven into picturesque scenes. scattered benches under trees also provide a peaceful spot for reading or simply enjoying the surrounding nature. The addition of European-style pavilions make this a popular choice for wedding photoshoots. In 2015, it was selected by UNESCO as the first World Heritage Site in Singapore.

Another highlight of the garden is the largest "National Orchid Garden" in the world, which is home to Singapore's national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim orchid. The National Orchid Garden houses over 60,000 plants and orchids that are arranged along the hillside with various colors to create gorgeous floral walls, making it one of the few attractions in the botanical gardens that requires a separate admission fee.
