The most underrated visiting place in Singapore. If you get enter inside the orchid garden you will see a lots of expensive orchids are ready to welcome you. My suggestion please charge full of your camera and phone for photo session. Don't miss the sembcorp cool house. You will also see the celebrity orchid garden where different species of orchids are named after those celebrities... It's simply a orchid heaven.

Like any all-day breakfast, Singapore's Botanic Gardens are always worth a visit. I like to visit outside of concert hours as there are just less phones and cameras about. But for the best experience, I would recommend an early start or near closing hours so you can enjoy the cooler air and soak in the greenery and beautiful orchids. The National Orchid Garden is itself worth the ticket as it features some of Singapore's finest creations. Included the Vanda Miss Joaquim, this hybrid from 1893 was crowned as Singapore's national flower in 1981. Other celebrity orchids worth a mention are Elton John, Princess Dianna, Jackie Chan and Nelson Mandela. I ignore the names myself and just try and soak in the curated beauty of these gardens at the slowest pace possible.

If you are visiting the Botanic Gardens in Singapore, which are absolutely stunning by the way, you must complete the visit by entering the National Orchid Garden. Entry to Botanic Gardens is free, but to enter the Orchid Garden you need to pay $5 per person (price correct at the time I was there). It is well worth it. Inside the Orchid Garden it is much quieter, almost tranquil (because of the fee to get in), beautiful flowers and plants, little water displays and archways make peaceful and relaxing moods. Great to spend an hour or so to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Best time to go would be morning or late afternoon, middle of the day is usually just too hot. I gave 4 stars and not 5 because the area is small compared to other stately gardens I have been in and because of the heat I think there should be somewhere inside where you can buy cold drinks.

Went on a hot sunny Sunday when it is most popular with groups and couples having picnics in the shade. I arrived at the Botanic Garden MRT entrance and signposting to the Orchid Garden is very good, it is approx 1.2 km walk to the Orchid Gardens. At the entrance (to the Orchid Gardens) are stalls selling ice cream, drinks, food, etc. A gift shop (with a wonderfully cool fan to stand under), with access to toilets and water dispenser. I truly appreciated the discounted 60 yrs and over ticket price of $1 instead of the full adult ticket price of $5. I chose to do a circuitous route to return to the gift shop and back to the same MRT station by a slightly different walking (again well marked) route. If it is very hot and sunny, I strongly recommend a sunhat or an umbrella. A really nice way to spend an afternoon.

The National Orchid Garden is one of those amazing spots where you can lose yourself in the sublime - something so beautiful that it defies explanation or belief. The sheer volume of flowers and different varieties of flowers is staggering. Admission to the exhibit is only $5 and you can stay for as long as you like. I recommend heading up on to the VIP Orchid Garden and checking out some of the orchids that have been dedicated to particular personalities, like the Obamas and visiting leaders. It's a tranquil place to wander around and is easily accessible by taking the blue Downtown line on the MRT to Botanic Gardens.

Well worth the schlep, the MRT or a Tax Ride to the entry- cost-free Botanical Gardens and pay the $5 extra to go into this self-contained garden. ($1 if yiu are 60 or over...lucky me!).
For a Brit, it is wonderful to see such exotic plants flourishing outside.

For me the Botanic Garden is World Class Best; however, the best part of it is the Orchid Garden. It does cost slightly more to visit, but when the rest of the garden is free, this is still worth the cost. The diversity of orchids is simply amazing, almost as incredible as the quantity of orchid's blooming. Singapore is that rare sweet spot in Botany were you can have world class quality with world class quantity. That is what is simply incredible here. You absolutely have to see the Botanic Gardens and while there you MUST SEE Orchid Garden. It is incredible and neither words or pictures will do it justice.

We often visit the National Orchid Garden - we had our wedding dinner at Burkill Hall, so the place is significant for us!
The new section is amazing... we could easily spend hours there along the cool walkways. Orchids are so interesting - each is unique, as well as being beautiful.

Te national orchard garden is the cherry on the cake of the National Singapore Botanical Garden. There is a very modest entrance fee (SGD 1 for seniors), which must be the best value for money in Singapore. What you get in return is an orgy of colours and different orchid varieties - it is quite spectacular.

We are visiting from Maui, Hawaii. We love orchids, and loved the setting. Admission is affordably priced to allow access to all ($5 adult; $1 senior citizen). Beautiful photo opportunities are labeled "Photo spot". Good signage, and lovely adjacent location to National Botanic Garden, which is peaceful and serene. A cooler oasis in the city.
