Located in Jurong are the Chinese and Japanese Garden of Singapore. Tourists can easily visit this park by MRT, that stops near the entrance of the Chinese Garden.
We first visited the Japanese Gardens. Japanese gardens always had my attention, just like the architecture of gardens. The atmosphere in the Japanese Garden is calm and the style is from Japan’s Muromachi period and Azuchi-Momoyama period between 1392 and 1615. There are a traditional house, red arched bridges and stone lanterns, all arranged around the ponds.
The Chinese Garden is located at the other island in Jurong Lake and connected with a bridge. There is a stone boat, tea house and 7-storey pagoda on a hill. From the pagoda you have a nice view over the gardens, so climbing these stairs is worth it. What I also liked to see was the Bonsai Garden. Unfortunately this partly was under renovation. The Chinese Garden also has a Turtle & Tortoise Museum, but we didn’t visit that.
