[Introduction]

I traveled to Singapore in late June for the first time in two years. In addition to famous tourist areas, I went around spots I have never been to before this time. While I have lived in Singapore for a year and half before, I find something new whenever I revisit Singapore. In this article, I will write about Chinese Garden as part of Day 2.

[Main Part]

Following the previous post, I moved east from Tuas Link Station, the last stop of East West Line, and got off the train at Chinese Garden station.""

As the name of the station suggests, I will visit Chinese Garden.""

About Chinese Garden

Chinese Garden is a park located in Jurong East area, the west side of Singapore. Built in 1975, the garden is modeled after the northern Chinese imperial style of architecture and landscaping, particularly during the Sung dynasty period.

Go around Chinese Garden

I passed through the East entrance, which was connected from the MRT station, and found “Seven-story Pagoda”.Singapore Chinese Garden1

It had rained until just before.Singapore Chinese Garden2

Here are photos from “Bonsai Garden” area.""

""

At “Tea House Pavilion”, people gathered to do Tai Chi.Singapore Chinese Garden3

It was a circuit style garden with a large pond in the center.""

""

“Twin Pagoda”.Singapore Chinese Garden4

The “Twin Pagoda” reminded me of “Dragon and Tiger Pagodas” in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, which I visited last September (see the related article).

View from the “Twin Pagoda”.""

I reached “Garden Country Yard” area.""

The architecture resembles National Revolutionary Martyrs’ Shrine in Taipei, Taiwan, which I visited last July (see the related article). This may be just a coincidence, but Chinese Garden was also designed by an architect from Taiwan.

I just came across “The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum”.""

This is a facility where visitors are able to watch turtles and tortoises live. There were charges for observation (S$5), but I decided to watch it.

Here are some snap photos of “The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum”.""

I also found such funny objects.""

Then, I came to “White Rainbow Bridge”.""

Here are photos around the bridge, although the sky was cloudy.""

When I moved to the entrance gate to leave the garden, I just happened to find a cat.Singapore cat1

That’s it for the article about Chinese Garden as part of Day 2.

Talking of “Garden” in Singapore, I guess most people recall either “Botanic Gardens” (see the related article) or “Gardens by the Bay” (see the related articles: day / night) while Chinese Garden is less popular. However, Chinese Garden is also worth of visit, so especially if you are a repeater to Singapore, I would recommend it 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Tiong Bahru/Outram Park/Tanjong Pagar as part of Day 2.
