Singapore is known for its orchids, and the National Orchid Garden is one of the best places to see them. Singapore's National Orchid Garden is home to the world's largest collection of tropical orchids—more than 1,000 species, including one named after Princess Diana. The National Orchid Garden is part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for students or senior citizens. Several buses and taxis serve the area. Parking is also available.
Due to its proximity to the equator, the climate in Singapore is hot and humid year-round and can prove difficult to adjust to: Never in your life will you be more thankful for air-conditioned shopping malls. This climate, however, also blesses us with striking tropical flowers such as orchids.
The National Orchid Garden in the Singapore Botanical Gardens showcases thousands of the world’s most beautiful orchids. Take your time as you wander numerous tranquil paths through orchids of all sizes and colors.
Don't forget to bring your camera, dress for the weather, and drink lots of water.
