Singapore isn’t all about shopping till you drop. There are other worthwhile things to do in the Lion City, one of which is visiting its first UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Singapore Botanic Gardens is the first and only tropical botanic garden in UNESCO’s World Heritage List and the first one in Asia.
A lush sanctuary in the heart of Singapore, the Botanic Gardens is just five minutes away from busy Orchard Road, which makes it the perfect spot for a peaceful timeout after enjoying the city’s metropolitan pleasures. The English-style garden consists of 3 core concepts, each featuring an exciting array of attractions that people from all walks of life will surely delight in.
Spanning 74-hectares, the Botanic Gardens also houses the National Orchid Garden, which takes care of more than 1,000 species of orchids and 2,000 hybrids. Some of these orchids are named after renowned entertainment and political personalities, such as Jackie Chan, Margaret Thatcher, and Nelson Mandela.
Here you can also find Burkill Hall, a lovely colonial house erected almost 150 years ago.
