This is a breathtaking utopia that offers unmatched ambience and tranquility. It is situated in the highest hill in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. This 3-hectare paradise has a carefully curated landscape and is home to more than 2,000 hybrids and 1000 species. To wow visitors, about 600 hybrids and species are put on display.

Thanks to the intricate design concept of this illustrious garden, visitors can view the display of numerous plant species in 4 distinct color zones.

Winter- zone of pristine white and brilliant violet shades

Spring- zone with dominant colors of gold, cream, and yellow

Autumn- zone of dark and matured shades

Summer – Zone of bright pinks and reds.

To achieve the 4 distinct color zones in the garden, selected herbs, trees, orchids, and shrubs with complimenting floral colors and foliage were put together.

On October20th 1995, this iconic garden was opened to the general public by Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. Students were given a free pass to explore this amazing garden on the first week of every school term holiday in November, September, March, and June.
