Why You Must Visit The Orchid Garden in Singapore

by - 5:42 AM

Want to escape the bustling city and get swept away by breathtaking nature? Luckily the Singapore National Botanic Gardens is only a few train stops away from the city. The entrance to the actual Gardens is free for you to roam and walk around in. But everyone knows the best kept secret, I guess not so secret anymore, is the National Orchid Garden. Although it is not free, it is only a five dollar entrance fee. Inside you will find paths lined with orchid plants, exotic greenery, fountains, and a range of different species of flowers. There are some interesting cool houses to walk in as well, so make sure you don't miss out on any of those!

My favorite spot in the gardens is this arrangement of arches with yellow flowers. It is located near the exit of the Orchid Gardens, so make sure to save that for last.

You can even keep these flowers as a souvenir! Well, at least I think you can. I randomly picked up this flower that fell off of a tree. I used it as my little prop for the rest of my time in the gardens.

The cool house mimics a tropical highland cloud forest. Tropical highland cloud forests have a cool climate and high rainfall year round. Inside you will feel a simulation of cool air, cloudy like mist, and rushing water stream providing a highly realistic representation of high elevation sites in the tropics and will make for a breathtaking experience.

As we walked out of the gardens, we stumbled across a free classical music concert called "Poland Sounds Good" hosted by the Polish Embassy. This was a lovely surprise because if you didn't know already, I am half Polish so I really really enjoyed this unexpected pleasure of good music and socializing with other poles!

Hope you enjoyed the photos, it’s a truly amazing and unforgettable place you definitely must visit when you’re in Singapore.
