It should be a beautiful walk around sundown, even if you simply intend to explore around the general (free) areas. I'd be quite keen to do this again at around 4:30ish or so when the sun's a tad gentler. We went at noon, and other than lunch by the SuperTree, we headed straight in for the domes to stay cool. If you're planning on checking out the domes during these hazy days, they might be a good idea for a bit of indoor-but-outdoors-y activity.

Coming from Marina Bay Sands hotel, we leisurely walked all the way to the Gardens. I would not suggest doing it at high noon, as we did. It was a reasonable walk for me, but I'm quite certain it must have been a very taxing walk for Red.
We were out from 10am to 4pm+, and I only had to carry her a couple of times for a total duration of 20 counts each time. Whenever she asks to be carried, I commit to carrying her only for 20 counts, and while she's not particularly happy about it, she knows I'm dead serious. Mid-way, she asked for milk, so we paused and allowed her time to make her milk herself. Plus, she carried her bag the whole time!
For the most part, she was happily running around and inquiring curiously on different flowers and plants. She's a trooper, this one; and she's all primed up to join me in travel adventures!

Sassy's an easy check. Strong looks like a tick in the box too. Continually working on smart and kind. :)
