Botanico is housed at the two storey 1920s art deco conservation building now known as The Garage.
Other than National Orchid Garden and Swan Lake, do check out Jacob Ballas Children Garden (with water play area) and Food for Thought (with a small outdoor playground) at Singapore Botanic Gardens too!
Situated at the heart of the city of Singapore, the site demonstrates the evolution of a British tropical colonial botanic garden that has become a modern world-class scientific institution used for both conservation and education. The cultural landscape includes a rich variety of historic features, plantings and buildings that demonstrate the development of the garden since its creation in 1859. It has been an important centre for science, research and plant conservation, notably in connection with the cultivation of rubber plantations, in Southeast Asia since 1875.
SBG is also a habitat of animals. Some were timid peeking around, some walked across my path like bosses. I had encounter lizards from as tiny as 5 inches to larger 1 meter ones. Swans, ducks, different species of birds, large fishes swimming freely in the ponds and many squirrels! However, I did not see any monkeys during my visits. These "encounters" are some how different from looking at caged animals in the zoo. It's thrilling, it's exciting and it's sometimes unexpected. It's a shiok feel of FREEDOM!!

Botanico and Bee's Knees have definitely taken modern SEA cooking to the next level and I found myself surprised at every bite.
Her creations now reflect a greater nuance and finesse with a new focus on South East Asian flavours.
Beyond the inventive cafe dishes on the menu, another reason to visit Bee’s Knees is the atmosphere.
so 2pax dinner very good standard dishes for S$53 nett. boleh la!
I like that the truffle carbonara has arugula leaves on it so that the bitterness can undercut the heaviness.
They also provide corporate catering menus like buffets, seminars and meetings, daily packed meals and cafeteria food services.
ambience was great. relax and food was great.
Each dish looks small but we were quite full by the time the kaya toast dessert was served.
