To Singapore Botanic Gardens – Weekend Walk to Feel Nature


Singapore Botanic Gardens has more of nature, unlike Gardens by the Bay that has more of man-made things and less of nature – doesn’t mean I don’t like it. They are just beautiful in their own terms. Former speaks about Singapore’s effort in conservation of nature whereas the latter does that of her technological creativity in the preservation of nature.

I have been to Gardens by the Bay several times as most Bhutanese who come to me prefer going there. But after I have visited Singapore Botanic Gardens last weekend with my friend Kezang, I want to confess that I love the Botanic Gardens more.

The moments of walking around this huge Botanic Garden of huge trees, expansive green lawns, pristine ponds, and beautiful orchids were so rewarding. Its peacefulness, serenity, and nature-ness altogether gave me such a therapeutic experience!

The history has that Singapore Botanic Gardens was started in 1859. Which means it’s already 160 years old. Because of that maybe, UNESCO has recognized Singapore Botanic Gardens as the World’s Heritage Site in 2015.
