My Visit to Singapore Orchid Garden

The Singapore Orchid Garden is located within the premise of the Singapore Botanical Garden. This orchid garden is like a specialty park highlighting all the beautiful orchid and many other plants. It cost S$5/- per entrance for adult to visit this park and it is definitely worth the price. A tip for visiting the Singapore Orchid Garden is to check out the weather for the day before actually going there. If the weather is sunny, then it will be a good time to visit this park and capture some photos of orchid as well. Another point to note is that there are no food kiosks inside the Singapore Orchid Garden, so do remember to bring a bottle of water along; as all the walking during the sunny day will make you thirsty. Food kiosks are available just outside the entrance of the Singapore Orchid Garden.

Inside the orchid garden, I was amazed to see so many different types of orchid, in fact I have never seen so many orchid in my life. I took about 3 hours in total to complete the sightseeing of this orchid garden. One of my favorite is the Coolhouse, where you can see many plants that are grown commonly in the mountains in Asia. The Coolhouse is totally air conditioned and there is even a small waterfall. There are also carnivorous plants and ferns on display. The VIP Orchid Garden is also another highlight of this orchid garden. This is where outstanding breed of orchid are named after famous dignitaries and head of state of various countries.

The Singapore Orchid Garden was officially opened by Mr. Lee Kuan Yew on 20th October 1995. It has been more than 15 years now since the opening, and I feel that it is still a very outstanding park.  I do hope to visit this park at least once every year.
