Chinese Garden, Singapore

I came back from my latest trip to Singapore with a visit to the Chinese Gardens, located a short walk from the Chinese Garden MRT.

I was glad to get in as the last time I went, it was closed for renovations. The weather was fine and I spent around an hour walking around the gardens, taking a few pictures on the way.

Sadly, access inside the tower was denied. Later my friend told me that there was a suicide case there recently.

  1. Great pictures! I can't wait to go back!

  2. Duncan these pictures were absolutely gorgeous. The colors were amazing and I know you must have had such fun seeing it all in person. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Nice photos, I really like those Chinese gardens certainly worth the visit. Greetings.

  4. These are frantastic! What a beautiful place.

  5. Not been to the garden yet. But it looks like a nice Chinese garden, with arched stone bridges, walkways and nice bonsai plants. Some great pictures, Duncan. And the place looks tranquil. Just the place to retreat to for some quiet contemplation.

  6. Nice photos, Duncan! The bridge, the stone boat, the pagoda are all elements which exist in the beautiful Summer Palace garden in Beijing (I wrote about this here: http://travelinghawk.blogspot.com/2011/01/o-data-in-viata-china-ep21-palatul-de.html
    Probably that in Singapore is a copy after that garden.

  7. Jennifer, Odie, Leovi, Anthony and ordinary malaysian, thank you for your comments.

    Traveling Hawk, it may well be, it has a lot of Chinese influence.
