Residents of Singapore are being encouraged to take a local holiday – dubbed a “Singapoliday” – and rediscover their home country while supporting local business through a S$45 million marketing campaign over the next nine months by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and other agencies.
As a citizen of Singapore, I will also play my part to showcase some Singapore sights and provide some insight to Singapore attractions. I guess it will be useful for expats who are not familiar with Singapore Botanic Gardens.
After 4 months of trapping ourselves at home, we finally went back to Unesco World heritage site Botanic Garden to have a walk.
7 tips for families who are going to the UNESCO World heritage site, Singapore Botanic Gardens.
🌱 Singapore Botanic Gardens is huge! You may need the whole day to cover everything. I feel it’s tiring to do everything in a day. Break the excursion it into 2-3 days and wear comfortable shoes, not slippers!
🌱 where to start – there’s 3 places which you can start your journey: Tanglin Gate, Nassim Gate (visitor’s centre) or Bukit Timah Gate.
🌱 Botanic Gardens MRT station is nearest to Bukit Time Gate.
🌱 Tanglin gate is nearest to Orchard Road. Plan a morning walk there with lunch at one of the malls there!
🌱 Bukit Timah Gate is also nearest to Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden.
🌱 Skates, scooters and bicycles are NOT allowed even for kids so do not bring them. When we were there last year, kids were allowed to scoot.
🌱 there’s a lot of animals to spot! In other trips, we also saw a peacock, otters and much more!
