“While you are inside the Botanic Gardens...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Do not let all the amazing plants, trees and flowers get tired, and pay a visit to the section dedicated to the orchids, the National Orchid Garden. Amazing other than unique!

“Wealth Of Orchids, Not To Be Missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

The National Orchid Garden, although situated within the Singapore Botanic Gardens, is an entirely seperate attraction.

The National Orchid Garden boasts over 1000 species and 2000 hybrids, with over 600 species on display. Unlike the Singapore Botanic Gardens, there is little activities to be done here, except view the various flower species on display, but it is worth it, and highly recommended.

The National Orchid Garden features Burkhill Hall with its VIP Orchid Display, the Yuen-Peng McNeice Bromeliad Collection, the Tan Hoon Siang Misthouse, and the Coolhouse with its Waterfall and collection of Carnivorous Plants.

If you're planning a visit, the admission charges is $5 for Adults, and allocate between 1 - 3 hours of time for the visit. And bring a camera as well.

“Part of botanic garden - brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Even without being a plant and flower lover this was very much worth while the five dollars entry fee. The variety of orchids seen and how it was all assembled was just beautiful. Also enjoyed the little areas to rest in the shade - certainly more than helpful on a warm and not really shady day in Singapore. Take a hat and wear sunscreen!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I haven't visited the Orchid Gardens for nearly 30 years, but wander around the Botanic Gardens all the time. Only costs SGD$5 entry into this special area. Lovely to walk around and so many beautiful orchids. Very well cared for (as is the whole Botanic Gardens).

Glad I took an hour to visit.

“Spent Christmas Day 2011here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Singapore is a relatively sleepy place on Christmas Day. Probably because local families are having picnics throughout the gardens. Take an umbrella. It is one of the best orchid collections worldwide.
