Singapore is one of the countries actively building a more sustainable future. With much of the original ecosystems long gone, the island has over the last thirty years, worked towards preserving what’s left and placing great importance on protecting natural heritage. It helps with the booming industry of course, but any reason to be eco-friendly is a welcome one. As it is following through on its plans of becoming a “Garden City”, visiting nature parks, wildlife reserves, zoos and other botanical wonderlands is one of the top things to do in Singapore.
The Singapore Botanical Gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s been around since as far back as 1860! While the more modern take is the Gardens by the Bay. Relax, unwind and let your imagination run wild as you witness the amazing vertical gardens, sculptures and stunning flora and fauna. It is truly something else. Once you’ve covered these must-see places, you can plan a hike bike ride along one of the scenic pathways at the Southern Ridges, MacRitchie Reservoir or Chestnut Park.
