Singapore Gardens - which one?

Hi all,

If you could choose only one garden to see in Singapore - National Orchid Garden, Singapore Botanic Gardens, Gardens by the Bay - which would you choose and why?

Thanks,
Judy

National Orchid Garden is inside the Singapore Botanic Gardens so you could knock off both in one morning. Both are well worth visiting...

So, botanic garden over the orchid garden?

I wish we had more time, but even if we did, I don't think I could get my bf to go to all three (or even two unless maybe if we had a few days between them...). So, I'm really torn as to which ONE to go to. Every time I think I've decided, I regret not being able to see one of the others.

Oh! Thanks Craig! I was submitting my post before yours popped up. That's great!! It's decided then. Orchid Garden and Botanic Garden it is! Or I wonder if I could trick my bf into going to all 3 by saying that we're just going to 2? Lol

Btw, thank you to you too Smeagol!

You could go to GBTB too and promise him drinks at MBS!! honestly all 3 are worth going too. Go to the botanical gardens in the early morning, GBTB lunchtime/ afternoon!

Gardens By the Bay is soooo gorgeous at night. You could get a glimpse of the super trees on your way to the hotel from the airport if you're taking taxi.

Anyway if you don't want to pay entry into the domes (or have a lack of time), you could drop by after dinner at the free outdoor park where the super trees are and enjoy the view and lights for a bit. It's cooler too.

I'm excited. Definitely orchids and botanical garden, and Night Safari later. Then maybe outdoor park by Gardens by the Bay at night (the next night). But, at least definitely orchids and botanical garden. Thank you to everyone for helping me make up my mind!!
