Just opposite the MRT station, the first thing you notice is the beautiful padoga. A lovely place to sit and relax, walk around the lake and admire the warrior statues. Ther are no refeshments available apart from a vending machine, so take plenty of water or buy nearby. Best of all it's free

We have been to Singapore many times but not been to these gardens before.
Today we caught the MRT on our line to the gardens
Get off at the train stop " Chinese Gardens"
I love the culture , the buildings history etc and this was a bit of a fix for me
There were some nice pergoda's lakes statues gardens and Lakes
We wondered around for about 2 hours but you could spend much more there.
There is a cafe and a couple of places to get a cool drink
We really liked it enjoyed the gardens and the buildings

We read about these gardens in a travel article before coming to Singapore and decided to take the MRT for a visit. They are right by the Chinese Garden MRT station and are well worth a visit. They are situated on a lake and if you are lucky you can see turtles and tortoises. The pagoda is beautiful and the warrior statues interesting. The stand out for us was the Bonsai Garden. Be aware there are no refreshments in the gardens so take water. The gardens are free.

I love this garden. I first spotted it as a bit of a surprise travelling on the green line to Raffles Marina. The beautiful traditional tower rising up behind the green rolling hills and trees. When I got to visit I found a beautiful, sprawling ornamental garden which was so peaceful and beautiful. The gate by the tower has some vending refreshments on a hot day and there are plenty of city bikes if you prefer to ride. It is such a lovely place to relax and quite the mind. Each area is a bit different and the statues are enchanting. I went on a mixed day where there weather started out nice and then there was a monsoon. In the flooded river I even saw a croc!!!!!
