Just FYI - The orchid gardens are a small part of a huge (and lovely) garden. Would take atleast half a day to see it all. An MRT station is located right in the garden.
It was a looong walk to the Orchid gardens.We reached there in the nick of time .The orchid garden ticket window is suppossed to close by 6.00 pm but was open till around 6.30 pm.Liked the landscaping of the whole garden and the relaxed air of families visiting it .The Orchid Gardens were rich in varieties of Orchids.(We arent ardent orchid fans as such) There were specific spots developed for photography in midst of the flowers.
But the weather was too hot to be comfortable.Also as vegetarians, we couldn't get any food except fruit slices at the food court.The only Indian food place , which served a few veg items was closed by 8.00 pm.
Overall a nice place if you have ample time. But not a can't miss it attraction.
