What
National Orchid Garden is located within Singapore Botanic Gardens. It sprawls across three hectares on the botanical garden’s highest hill.

The garden’s landscaped slopes display more than 1,000 orchid species and 2,000 hybrids. This gorgeous garden is divided into four zones that follow the four seasons with a distinct color theme for each zone.

The garden opened to the public in October 1995.

Why
The National Orchid Garden is a green oasis where you can admire the beautiful blooms of Singapore’s national flower.

Most businesses in Singapore open late so why not spend your early morning at the garden? Breathe fresh air and flower scents into your lungs before heading out to enjoy the rest of Singapore.

Once inside, pretty natural treasures will make you forget about the outside life. Use some time there to find the rarest orchids among the 60,000 plants and be amazed at the huge size of the flowers.
