Dubbed “City in a Garden,” Singaporeans are naturally proud of the island’s greenery, which benefits from our location just above the equator. Singapore’s tropical climate is ideal for trees, plants, and flowers to flourish.
We have an abundance of flora and fauna all over our island in four nature reserves and more than 300 parks that sprawl across Singapore. They are enhanced by an island-wide Park Connector network linking major parks, nature areas and residential estates for walkers, joggers, and bicyclists.
Added to this is our extensive streetscape, or roadside greenery, that forms the backbone of our garden city, and frames even our expressways with lush foliage and blooming bougainvillea.
Join a walking tour and see our beautiful birds in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Gardens by the Bay, and Pasir Ris Park. If you’re more adventurous, explore one of Singapore’s outer islands with a visit to Pulau Ubin, a 10-minute boat ride away from the mainland.
Little known fact: Singapore is not just one island, it’s actually 64! Escape the hustle and bustle of life in the Lion City while you explore one of the country’s outer islands. It’s as if you’ve stepped into a time machine to discover 1960s Singapore and the last remaining kampong (village).
