Chinese & Japanese Gardens
Perfect for a meditative stroll
What we say:
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.
