“Over rated destination”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

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.

“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Inside the Singapore Botanic Gardens, this is a magnificent collection of over 1000 species and 2000 hybrids. Take a nice slow stroll in the heat and humidity and let your eyes feast on the variety before you. So many differing orchid types, so many beautiful colours. It is obvious why this is such an attraction in a city of so many attractions. Easy to reach using the super transportation system that Singapore enjoys. Great for the serious gardener, the novice and those who just like flowers.

If Orchids are your thing this is your Valhalla. Even if they are not you cannot help but getting caught up in the beauty of the place.

“VIP orchids are fun”

special hybrids for VIPs; check out Margaret Thatcher and Princess Diana. You can lose yourself in the beautiful environment of these gardens.

Wonderful display. Value for money - a must visit. I would come again when in Singapore. Nothing to complain about.
