I was there in May and the gardens were very quiet. Bonsai gardens fantastic.
Hi, we visited both gardens in the end of March, weather overcast with the sun breaking through, warm temperature and dry. The gardens were virtually empty of visitors.
Hope this is still relevant. But in Singapore there is really only two seasons. The rainy season and the really rainy season. Nov-Jan is the really rainy season. But there is always good weather to be found here and the gardens are lovely all year round.
Best if no rain is forecast as not much shelter and take water as it can get very hot and you have a fair amount of walking to do.
i went on july...not too hot...I think don't go there on rainy season...
we visited after the chinese new year in january. it was packed w/ people and the weather is so hot. you should wear something comfortable, there will be lots of walking.
Since Singapore is located near the equator, there are hardly 'seasons'. There's a chance for rain every day. Quite unpredictable.
Anytime in the year is fine. This is after all a tropical island which may see showers from time to time and dries up quickly thereafter. Exception - perhaps in the "wetter" months towards the end of the year. June through August is when the locals (ie us) consider it driest and "hottest". Best time to come is early in the morning via the MRT line (ironically called Chinese garden stop).
Hi, we have just returned from Singapore to OZ and found the gardens in autumn were beautiful, but on saying that we were told by locals that they are like that all year round. But remember this period now is the cooler period in the location. Spring to summer the heat starts to rise. Take water when ever you travel around. Travel by train also, so easy and cheap, and the station is right at the gardens. Hope the answer is helpful, and enjoy Singapore and your travels.
We visited in October. The weather was warm (31C) and humid so take water. There's some seating and sheltered areas so it's not all open spaces. There were only a few people around during our morning visit. The gardens are more about design rather plants in flower.
