Singapore Botanic Gardens

1 Cluny Road
Tanglin District
Tel: 65 6471 7361's insider take:

Originally developed in 1869 for the scientific study of cash crops like cocoa and nutmeg, this beautiful 166-acre property is an oasis in the otherwise urban landscape of the city. Although parts of the gardens are still used for research and off-limits to visitors, the rest has become a popular place for Singaporean family outings. Don't miss the exquisite National Orchid Garden, with some 700 species of flower (180 of them native to Singapore). One of the city's best restaurants, Au Jardin les Amis, is located on the grounds, in the former groundskeeper's cottage.
