Unplugging is more important than it ever is in our digitalised world and the need for open spaces is essential for respite away from our concrete jungle. While Jewel Changi Airport and Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar are enticing to visit, this May, put Jurong Lake Gardens on your list of places to go to.
Jurong Lake Gardens is the first national garden in the heartlands of Singapore, following Botanic Gardens and Gardens By The Bay, and brings us one leap forward into being a “garden city”.
