I was in Singapore the day that the Singapore Botanic Gardens had achieved UNESCO World Heritage Site status (July 4, 2015). It was all over the news, and it delighted me to see how much pride the Singapore community took in establishing this status. To join in on the fun as Singapore gets ready to celebrate their 50th anniversary of independence this weekend, I’d like to share with you some of my best photos from the Singapore Botanic Gardens. If you visit Singapore, do not miss a trip to see these sublimely beautiful, lush, extensive gardens.

You can take the SMRT straight to the Singapore Botanic Gardens (you can read about how much I love the SMRT here), or a taxi from the Marina Bay area will cost about $10. There is no admission fee, except for the National Orchid Garden.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens also feature the informative Healing Garden with over 400 plants that are used medicinally, the Ginger Gardens, and the Evolution Garden which traces the history of plant-life from a time long before humans arrived.

I hope you enjoy the photos.
