Chinese Garden

The Chinese Garden was built back in 1975, modeled after the Northern Chinese imperial style of architecture and landscaping. You will see pagodas, arch bridges, and tea houses among many types of ancient Chinese buildings. Apart from the buildings, there are numerous gardens, winding streams, pavilions, and footpaths, all meant to create a scene of harmony. There is also a Bonsai Garden, with over a thousand bonsai imported mainly from China. A recent addition to the Bonsai Garden is a training center, where experts from Suzhou and Shanghai China will teach those interested in the art of nurturing and caring for bonsai.

In close proximity to the Chinese Garden, there is the Japanese Garden. While the Chinese Garden aims to be more visually stimulating, the Japanese Garden evokes wellness and serenity in visitors.

Admission to the main gardens is free, though certain small attractions within the main gardens have very small admission charges. It is best to visit the gardens during major Chinese festivals such as the Mid-Autumn festival (early September to early October). The Gardens will be magnificently lit up in the evenings, and during the Mid-Autumn festival, there will be many young children carrying unique lanterns amidst the well-decorated buildings and pavements.

How to get to Chinese Garden

Take a train and alight at Chinese Garden MRT station. The Garden is a 5 minute walk from the station.
