My last visit to Singapore I was hosted on the far western side of Singapore in the NTU campus area, near the border with Malaysia. Most of the Singapore attractions are far away from that area but there’s one attraction that’s really worth visiting – Singapore Botanical Gardens. It features Chinese gardens, Japanese gardens, and a host of lakes and pagodas. Surprisingly, it even features some of the local wildlife, that scared the s&@t out of me when I first noticed them – the dinosaur lizard looking large monitor, over one meter long, and various large beaver looking mammals.
Walking around is really a treat, and there are some attractions in pavilions aside from the gardens and lakes for you to explore. I wondered around for 3 hours and I felt like I haven’t really seen it all. It’s that big.
So here’s a bit from my visit to the lovely Singapore Botanical Gardens
