    Singapore Botanical Garden is a large green park not far from downtown area. On the guide map at the entrance, we can see that it has a long history. It can be traced back to the small experimental botanical garden established by Raffles in 1822. After that, the botanical garden with British style has been expanding with the passing of time. Today, the botanical garden, which covers a large area, has developed to 74 hectares, showing the pattern of a large plant kingdom of 2.5 kilometers north and south, but its east-west direction is not very wide. Our tour plan is to go from the north gate to the South gate. In this free park in the morning, besides a few tourists, there are more local people exercising. Some are practicing yoga, some are running, some are doing morning exercises, some are dancing swords, some are boxing. People enjoy leisurely life in the green landscape of nature, which is the life state after being rich. We also slowed down our visit to the botanical gardens as the Romans did. On the edge of a small lake, a black swan was swimming along the lake, several pigeons were staying on the shore, and a child was making eye contact with the animals in his eyes with the attention of his mother not far away. Human beings live in the living environment of animals and plants, in which human beings should pay more attention to animals and plants, because paying attention to them is to pay attention to our own living environment. Many plants in botanical gardens are covered with pictorial signs. Unfortunately, they are all introduced in English, so there is not much possibility of gazing at them. However, many rare plants along the way attracted our cameras and mobile phones. Although we could not name them, we were willing to leave the images of these plants in our photos. In the natural scenery and cultural landscape of the ornamental botanical garden, we walked along the tree-shaded road, through the jungle trail, and arrived at the visitor service center in the middle of the botanical garden. After visiting the Hujilan Garden in the Botanical Garden, we continued to visit the Botanical Garden from north to south. Although the scenery we saw along the way was better than that in the first half, because we had seen the beautiful Hujilan Garden, the garden vegetation here seems to have macroscopic momentum, but not microscopic delicacy. We were on our way in the sightseeing, because the clouds were getting heavier in the sky, and we were very worried about a sudden thunderstorm, which might be too late to dodge in the open park. Fortunately, we did not encounter the embarrassment we imagined. Finally, we passed a lakeside in the park. There were swallow sculptures in the lake. There were two big white geese swimming in the lake, which attracted many tourists to stop and watch. Arrive along the main road to the entrance and exit gate on the south side of the botanical garden. Say goodbye to the silver gate, which is exquisite and elegant and integrated with plant design.

    Singapore has two big treasure night zoos. They are flourishing and beautiful. They are the epitome of tropical islands. They can be regarded as a vivid Encyclopedia of nature. They take a walk around the botanical garden for about half an hour. The garden includes primitive forests and professional flower beds. It has more than 20,000 kinds of exotic flowers and precious trees in subtropics and tropics. One of the most noteworthy is Singapore's National Flower Brocade Vandeland, which holds an annual Huji Flower Exhibition in the Botanical Garden for visitors to visit. There is a souvenir shop after the garden. Making exquisite flower specimens would be a good recommendation by hand. Certainly, some of the gold-inlaid works of art cost thousands of dollars. As far as you can see, there is also a piece of green grass suitable for photography. From time to time, two pigeons fly in to break the tranquility by swaggering and strolling in the courtyard. It is better to play with them to pass the leisure time.

    When I went to the botanical garden, I hit the South Gate directly. It seems that I don't remember the South Gate very much. When I came back, I took the subway to the north of the map and went a long way to the subway station. There are many tall trees in Singapore that grow very tall without moving. Even those that pass by Hongmao Bridge are tall trees on the 2nd side of the road. So the Botanical Garden is no exception to seeing the tall trees that feel spectacular and fantastic. The dinosaurs with long necks in Jurassic Park eat leaves in front of me. Haha ~Sorry, I'm a science fiction fantasy ~I'm off topic ~I'm serving when I enter the door. A map of the botanical garden is needed for the desk and the staff. - Remember to ask for the Chinese version.

    Singapore Botanical Garden has a history of more than 150 years and is the epitome and representative of tropical island countries. In 2014, it was listed in the World Heritage List and is the first tropical garden in the world to receive this honor. Here, whether orchids, plants, or humanities, the environment is lingering, everywhere beautiful scenery will be intoxicating...

    Botanical gardens are free, very large, and the east half is dominated by popular science education for teenagers. Visitors visit the West half. In addition to large ponds and plants, they can also see small animals such as pigeons, pheasants, turtles in ponds and so on. Many local teenagers are playing expansion games. Huji Garden is definitely worth visiting. I don't think it will come out soon. In fact, it will take at least half a day to turn around. There are greenhouses and ice chambers in it. Many areas show different kinds of plants. Tickets are five Singapore dollars and more than 60 old people one. The drawback is that taxi is not easy to take when we come out. The botanical garden entrance can wait for a bus, but the staff said that this is not a taxi station, so the car will not wait for a long time. In addition to the door to the roadside, we can take a taxi, but in fact we are not very good at the roadside. Many empty cars drive directly into a hospital next door. It is suggested that the bus should be checked in the future. There are many trips, so it is convenient to go downtown.

    Walking into this tropical botanical garden, I feel green, birds and flowers fragrant, which makes me feel comfortable. The flowers are especially brilliant, and there is a special garden of Huji, which is rich in varieties. The Singapore Botanical Garden covers 54 hectares and is famous for its research and collection of tropical plants and horticultural flowers. There are more than 20,000 subtropical and tropical exotic flowers and precious trees in the garden, which can be divided into tropical, subtropical evergreen trees, shrubs, vines, palms, bamboo horticultural flowers, aquatic plants, marsh plants, parasitic plants and desert plants, as well as natural primitive forests and tropical gardens, among which the National Huji Garden is the most refreshing and charming. Specialized flower nursery, which planted eggs, roses, ferns, desert plants, etc., a wide range of plants including many endangered species, some rare plants, is the most distinctive Singapore Botanical Garden. It is worth mentioning that the tree behind the Singapore dollar is from the Singapore Botanical Garden. This huge tree has witnessed the rapid growth of Singapore. It is also a paradise for many Singaporeans when they were young. To commemorate it, its picture is printed on the back of the Singapore dollar five. The name of the tree is Grey Chenopodium.

    Singapore Botanical Garden is the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Singapore. The Botanical Garden is located on Clenny Road, covering 74 hectares.

It can be divided into tropical and subtropical evergreen trees, palms, bamboo horticultural flowers, aquatic plants, marsh plants, parasitic plants and desert plants, including many endangered species. The key is that such a beautiful botanical garden with many kinds of plants is free. There are service centers, drinks, catering and so on in the whole garden. You can sit down and have a drink when you are tired, and even have lunch in it.

    Singapore Botanical Garden is close to Orchard Road and can walk from Orchard Road. It is also convenient to park on the opposite side of the park by bus. It is a good place to enjoy flowers and trees and know tropical plants. There is also a big lake, swans on the lake. The environment is very quiet. The botanical garden is open for free. If you want to enjoy Singapore's national flowers, you can spend NT$5 to go to the National Hu inside. Ji Garden, full of orchids in full bloom, beautiful!

    It's more suitable for bringing children. Although it's a botanical garden, there are many wild animals. But it's quieter and more comfortable than a zoo. Just saw a snake peeling, I recorded the whole journey, I'm sorry for it yo! ____________
