Botanic Gardens

We went to visit the Botanic Gardens ¬†yesterday. It is free to get in and there is lot’s to see. I would definatley reccomend going! There is an Orchird Garden, within the Botanic Gardens, which costs $5 spd to get in. That is also well worth visiting. The park is open from 5.00am till Midnight, and the Orchird garden is open from 7.00am till 7.00pm. It was nice to get out of the city for the day. It is a very popular park for jogging and cycling. We saw some people doing meditation and also Yoga.

We took quite a few photos, to have a look at them just go to the gallery. 

We leave Singapore tommorow afternoon, to fly to Bali. We plan on staying in Bali for 2 weeks, then we fly to Bangkok. We have enjoyed being in Singapore, however after a few days here, we are ready to move on. Things are very expensive, compared to the rest of Asia, and there are so many shops, but as a backpacker this is not what you want!

There are a few things that I would definatley reccomend, when coming to Singapore.

  • Science Center- Costs $6 each. You should spend a whole day there, as there is too much to fit in, in just a couple of hours.
  • Sentosa Island- Costs $3 to get the Sentosa Express. That also gives you addmission to the Island. There are lot’s of things for you to do on the Island, like, rides, 4D Cinema, Cable cars, Luge ride, rollercoasters, beaches ect. We went on the Cable car and Luge Ride, which I was unsure about doing at first, but really enjoyed it! This costs $11 spd each, for the cable car and Luge. There is also a bridge you can cross which takes you to the most southern point of continental Asia.
  • Shopping Centers- There are many shopping centers, mostly centered around Orchard Road. Even if you are not wanting to buy anything, it is worth visiting to see the designs of each building.
  • Botanic Gardens- of which I’ve already mentioned. This is a good day away from the city, and doesn’t cost a penny!
  • Marina Bay- This is where the famous Merlion is. There is also a new theatre there, called Esplande where you can see performances daily.
  • China Town
