Chinese Garden Pagoda

The view from the top of Chinese Garden Pagoda is fantastic, it is windy too ! We are talking about the 7 storey Pagoda.

Video : Kids were running laps at the Pagoda and shouting at the top of their voice.

Anyway, we are on a tour of 4 iconic Towers or Pagodas in Singapore, starting with Upper Seletar’s Rocket.

Did you noticed the Pagoda kept hiding behind the trees? It is definitely a landmark for the neighbourhood. We always pass this Pagoda from our car or on the MRT, but it never occur to us that we should go up the Pagoda one day.

How tall is Chinese Garden Pagoda

The Pagoda is opened from 8am to 7pm. Did we mention that you have to scale the spiraling steps up to the roof?

You will hear the kids’ echoes down the stairway, giggling and laughing as they hop up the steps. We seldom see these type of steps in Singapore.
can we climb up Chinese Garden pagoda

Trust us, the view from the top is worth the perspiration.

These are the other icons around the garden.

Chinese Garden is not exactly big, but maybe because there is lesser crowd, kids got vast space to run and explore.

They can choose to go slow, catch some tortoise or feed the carps too (Ticketed exhibit).

Perhaps Hide and Seek in the bamboos?

Tons of photo opportunities all around.

Bollywood casting ?

Be it hopping across the pond on big boulders..

.. or throwing pebbles at the smaller Pagodas. We had so much fun!

Kids trying to spot more fishes under the bridge.

Do pop by our Fanpage album for more photos.
