The stunning colors of the plants and rock formations in the Chinese Garden contrast with the thought-provoking Japanese Garden.

Beautiful gardens just a short hop on the MRT to another world. We saw otters in the river, turtles, and a number of water monitors roaming about. A must see garden.

Lovely find, so tranquil. Really enjoyed it here. It’s a little MRT ride out but easy enough to get to and a short walk from the tram stop. The gardens are so well maintained

So beautiful and tranquil. It's like an oasis of peace in the hustle and bustle of Singapore. We were quite impressed by how well-kept the gardens were, and that is is free entry for everyone.

A hidden gem in West Coast. Peace and tranquility. It takes around 1 hr to walk both gardens. So beautiful. No cafes as such so be prepared and bring some snacks and water with you

Very peaceful and beautiful, a bit of an MRT ride out of Singapore, but well worth it, while here visit the Tortoise and Turtle living museum, and give them a feed, a great half day out and full of fum for the whole family.

Absolutely! They go on now and best time is of course the night time when the lights come on. Alternatively there is one going on at Gardens by the bay, along with the lights for Diwali.
