A Colourful Walk Around the Singapore Botanic Gardens


The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Botanic Gardens MRT Station (Google Map Directions) and finished at the Singapore Botanic Gardens bus stop on Napier Road (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 9km (5.6mi) in about 5hr (a slow walk I know, I did take plenty of breaks though and spent a long-time taking photos and enjoying the Singapore National Orchid Garden).
  • Grade: Easy, it's a walk in the park. There are some stairs and slopes but nothing too intimidating. The paths are very well maintained. Be careful of the heat and humidity.
  • Date Walked: 8th of September 2019

The Story

There is plenty to see on a walk around the Singapore Botanic Gardens: dazzling orchid displays, big lizards, wetlands, treetop boardwalks, lakes, cargo nets and plenty of green shady spots.
