The Chinese Gardens, along with its neighbor the Japanese Gardens, are one of our favorite getaway places when we want to get out of Singapore's modern city center. The gardens are easy to get to are very relaxing.

Within the Chinese Gardens is a large bonsai garden housing a huge variety of species spread among several Chinese styled pavilions. A narrow channel connecting the two large lakes of the park borders the bonsai garden on the north side. Across the channel you can see the eight story pagoda on a short hill.
Take the MRT towards Jurong and alight at the Chinese Garden station. The gardens are a short walk across an open field south of the station.
