Chinese & Japanese Gardens

Perfect for a meditative stroll

Photo of , , Greater Singapore

What we say: 3.5 stars

Set in a lake in Western Singapore, each garden is on an artificial island and connected by an arched bridge.

The Chinese Garden is the more spectacular of the two with tiered pagodas, a bonsai garden and 100 year-old fruit trees, and statues of famous Chinese people like Confucius. With its simple design and zen rock garden, the Japanese Gardens is perfect for a meditative stroll.

Visitors can rent paddle boats or pay to see haggard reptiles at the small Living Turtle and Tortoise Museum.
