Awesome Orchids

As well as a wealth of stunning architecture Singapore also has a fantastic green heart full of exotic, beautiful orchids.

The National Orchid Garden showcases over 1000 species and 2000 hybrids of orchids in a wide range of colours and patterns.

The gardens started an orchid breeding programme in 1928 and the results of these extensive experiments equal a wonderful display.

The National Orchid Garden is set within the larger Singapore Botanical Gardens which are free to visit.

The orchid section is $5 for adults. Well worth a wander around.

The orchids are arranged in colours. Cream and yellow orchids stand for spring and pink and red orchids for summer.

White orchids form part of the winter display, and purple and red orchids grace the autumn section.

Whether you’re a green fingered garden enthusiast or just enjoy pretty flowers, the orchid garden offers an oasis of calm in the high octane city.

There’s three hectares of lush planting to explore, from a misted garden to a much needed cool house that provides an escape from the city mugginess.
