    Lovely
    We stopped by the National Orchid Garden as part of a stop with Big Bus Tours. A great decision. We spent 1-2 hours at a fantastic array of orchids in all shapes and colours. Especially, the cool house was full of impressive displays of colour. Well worth the visit to see the national flower in all its varieties.

    OMG Best collection of orchids, perhaps nowhere in the world!
    What a collection of orchids! OMG! I have never ever seen such a large collection of orchids under one roof. OfCourse, they have created/ simulated the environment under a big enclosure. What a hard work to maintain all these.

    Beautiful gardens
    What a wonderful place to visit, nicely maintained gardens. The orchid house does have a fee to get into but it’s well worth it. The only negative I have is that it’s quite a walk to the orchid house, some form of transport to get around the gardens would be good, also not much shade from the very hot sun. Definitely worth a visit.

    Well worth a visit
    Had been to botanic gardens a few times in past but had never visited the orchid garden - so pleased we did. Much bigger than we expected and beautifully laid out. So much effort has gone into making the most lavish gardens. The greenhouse was a nice cool contrast to the humidity. There is a fee but it is only $3 for seniors (got to be some advantage to getting older!). Definitely recommend.

    Lovely orchid garden. Highly recommend.
    If you’re into Orchids this is a great place. I was able to see different types of orchids. Easy walking path. Arrived at 11am on Wednesday. Not many people there. One group of 15 was walking around as I saw. We took a taxi there from Orchard Road versus taking MRT and having to walk 15mins or so. Taxi ride was only S$9. We finished and as we weee waiting for taxi it was pouring rain luckily we were under the covered area.

    Absolutely beautiful.
    For any gardener, visiting Singapore, this place is a must. With thousands of orchids, you can wonder for hours looking at the flowers. There are orchids in every shade of the rainbow. Good gift shop and the gardens are easily accessible via walking through the Botanical Gardens. Just get the MRT to the Botanical Gardens MRT Station then follow the signs.

    Just stunning
    This has to be one of the most amazing gardens in the world. We visited late afternoon and there was hardly anyone else there. Everything about it is just amazing, although there could be a few extra places to sit down and admire the orchids. This is a "must visit" attraction. We took a "grab" taxi to the Tyersall Entrance (only c. 200m walk to the Orchid garden) and afterwards walked around the Botanical Gardens which are also immaculate, leaving via the Nassim Entrance. The open top bus also goes to the Tyersall Entrance and is an alternative option for visitors.

    Beautiful display - a must do
    While a small admission fee is required - it is well worth it. There are so many types of orchirds to see. And there were plenty of gardeners on active duty maintaining the displays throughout the garden. It's clear a lot of thought and effort have been placed into maintaining the displays. The Gardens also have put up a lot of detailed information on the orchids on large signs. This included their process of growing the orchirds all the way to flowering. The Sembcorp Cool House was a special highlight. So many displays in this uniquely built cool house, so even flowers that wouldn't usually survive in Singapore's heat can still be viewed here.

    Wonderfully displayed Orchids
    Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Botanic Gardens (free) plus the Orchid Gardens which had an entry fee 13 SG$(?). Pleased to find that over 60s entered for 3 SG$. Fabulous display of orchids arranged through gardens and orchid houses.

    So spectacular
    If the Botanic Gardens are the jewel in Singapore’s crown, then surely the National Orchid collection is the central diamond. It is absolutely incredible. Whilst entry to the Botanic Gardens is free, there is a small charge( with concessions) to visit the magnificent orchid collection. It is probably best to get there as early as possible to avoid large tour groups and it is, of course, cooler. Take your time! There is so much to see, such a variety of orchids and other plants that it’s easy to miss some of the displays. Also, make sure that camera/phone batteries are fully charged! Visiting here is surely one of the highlights when visiting Singapore and is not to be missed. At the conclusion of the visit to the Orchid collection, there is a gift shop and a nearby cafe. Very highly recommended and appreciated.

Never disappoints. Situated within the Botanical Gardens, the Orchid Garden exhibit provides a large variety if not the largest of orchids. The garden also features carnivorous plants as well.

None of us are gardeners, but this was incredibly beautiful and enjoyed by all. They were truly the most stunning flowers we may have ever seen.

It started by clicking a photo of the detailed map of the enormous Orchid garden .The Burkill Hall was a mansion with elaborate descriptions about different hybrid orchids going on further. we visited the VIP orchid garden, which was full of beautiful orchids assigned to various politiciansThe Yuen Peng Mcneice Bromland collection was a bewitching garden full of different species of orchids.The Sembcorp cool house was a fully air conditioned room full of photogenic spots lastly the Golden Shower Arches were a fitting ending to the enchanting orchid garden
Some helpful tips :
1. Bring your student ID it will cost only 3$
2. If you want to relax and enjoy the scenery, there are many benches as well

The main must-see thing to see at the Botanic Gardens. A beautiful collection of orchids of all different types, and good descriptions of them too. The Indoor Cool sone area at the end, which replicates mountain rainforest conditions, is the highlight and a nice respite on a hot day.

On our second trip to Singapore this came across my radar. The national orchid botanical gardens in Singapore! Over 3000 varieties 2000 of which are natively grown in Singapore. My wife was in heaven and she’s an orchid lover! The five star review is hers!

We visited this special space 4 years ago and it only got better. The basic layout remained the same but they have improved the garden by adding a couple of new zones. One particular new build is the cool zone "dome". It is fully air-conditioned and houses all cold climate plants. The displays are wonderful and the walk in the chilled air is refreshing.
The garden is definitely a highlight for any Singapore tour and you only need about 1.5hrs. BTW, there are a number of organised tours but the garden is quite close to the CBD so a Grab ride will give you easy and timely door-to-door access.

Orchards grow so well in climates like Singapore's so it's no surprise that the National Orchid Garden has such a great variety of these beautiful, sometimes curious plants. This garden sits within the Singapore Botanic Garden (free entry) and is surprisingly large with indoor and outdoor gardens including the Cool House (take a breather from the heat here) and the VIP orchard section with unique specimens named after the famous and infamous.
The entry fee is $15 (only $1 if you're local), but with over 1000 species and 2000 hybrids on display, and more being nurtured, (they run a breeding program here too), I think it's well worth the price.

The world famous orchid garden on the territory of the Singapore botanical garden in November is similar to a middle-sized flowers shop. Some plants are really beautiful but no compositions or interesting places. Just groups of similar varieties of orchids with chaotic labels attached by different suppliers to each plant - inside the domes. No Instagram spots. Some beautiful paths with small fountains on the territory. That’s all. 1 hour is quite enough to observe. As for me, Dubai Miracle Garden in Dubai is hundreds times more interesting and beautiful.

This special garden lies within the Singapore Botanical Gardens. There is a fee to enter but it's well worth it.

The variety of orchids and the way the garden is laid out is excellent. They have a "cold house" which is well done and provides a short respite from the heat of the day.

It's a fair way in so be warned you have walk for about 30 minutes to get there. You'll need to be fit to deal with the heat of the day.
