The most famous gardens in Singapore are obviously the Gardens by the Bay attracting thousands of tourist every week. However, one of my favourite spots in Singapore is the National Orchid Garden. It is just so beautiful that I decided to put together a photo post of all those beautiful flowers for you.
The National Orchid Garden is inside the Botanic Gardens. Even though it will be a very hot experience, it is really worth taking a walk through the park. My friend and I planned to have a picnic at the Botanic Gardens. However, we soon discovered that this was impossible – not only because of the heat but also because of nasty pigeons recognizing our food bags and trying to attack us 🙂 We also spotted a 1 meter lizard just casually hopping into the water and a turtle family chilling out next to the lake on the picture above. We decided to head over to the National Orchid Garden which is home to 1,000 of different species of Singapore’s national flower. The pictures below are a sneak peak into the beautiful garden.
The National Orchid Garden is open daily from 8.30 am until 7.00 pm (last entry at 6.00 pm).
Regular tickets are SGD 5 (about USD 4, EUR 3), SGD 1 for students and senior citizens, children aged under 12 can enter for free
Note: some areas of the garden are currently under renovation.
