A guide to visiting the Singapore National Orchid Garden

A guide to visiting the Singapore National Orchid Garden

One place in Singapore that I think should be on everyone’s list to visit is the Singapore National Orchid Garden. Why?? Because you will be stunned by the sheer beauty of the plants you will see. This post is an excuse to share some of the photographs I took (all on my iphone) as I think it is one of the most beautiful places you could possibly visit when it comes to seeing orchids.

The Singapore National Orchid Garden is located within the Singapore Botanical Gardens (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and were opened in 1995.

If you are planning to visit you can get to the gardens via MRT but if you are going specifically for the orchids I would suggest getting a taxi to drop you off at the Nassim gate. If you enter at any of the other gates you will have quite a hike to get to the orchid garden. The first time we visited we arrived via MRT and it was a long walk so this time we caught a taxi!

Entrance fee is $5 for adults and children under 12 are free.

Check the website for further details as opening times vary – Singapore Botanical Gardens

And now for the stars of the show…enjoy!

and more…….

and yes even more…..

We loved our visit to the Singapore National Orchid garden so much when we were in Singapore in 2013 that we had to return again in 2017 and they were even more spectacular!

    Ooh they all look gorgeous! When I was in Singapore we visited the Botanical Garden which also had its fair share of nice flowers but I think I would have preferred to visit the orchids if I had known of the place 😛

    I’ve always liked Singapore and have visited many times. I always believed there’s so much more to the country than just being a stopover destination. Great write up.

    Orchids are such beautiful flowers. I’d love to see such an abundance of them in Singapore’s National Orchid Garden.

    • August 17, 2017 / 8:42 am

      They are really worth seeing – so beautiful!

    I’ve never been out to the Orchid Gardens but it photographs beautifully. Going to the MRT then taking a taxi is a good idea because it’s super hot and the taxis in Singapore aren’t too expensive either.

    Those flowers are breathtaking! I would love to explore Orchid Gardens soon. When’s the best time of the year to explore this beauty?

    • August 24, 2017 / 11:01 am

      To be honest we have visited in April and in August and they are just as stunning whenever we have been! I think with the climate in Singapore being the same all year round that any time to visit is fine!

    Gorgeous photos! we went to an orchid garden in Fiji. Orchids are exquisite flowers and very photogenic. I will be visiting this garden if I find myself back in Singapore!

    The Orchid Garden is an enchanting place in Singapore. We loved the time we spent there. We were fascinated by the section where you have Orchids named after celebrities and visiting dignitaries.

    • August 24, 2017 / 10:59 am

      Ah we also loved that section too!

  10. August 19, 2017 / 8:51 pm

    I really love the variety of plants and flowers, I’m just fascinated! I’ll make sure to visit it when I visit Singapore since it’s already on my bucket-list!

    • August 24, 2017 / 10:59 am

      Definitely worth a visit – they are beautiful!

      I took so many photographs it was impossible not to!

  12. August 22, 2017 / 6:45 am

    OK so now I have a confession and now I feel silly… we caught the MTR to the Botanical Gardens and saw the signs for the Orchids. We strolled all the way through the park (yes it is a bit of a long walk) and when we eventually reached the entrance, it was at that point we found out there was a charge to enter. What were hot and bothered so chose not to go in, but these photos are making me wish we weren’t so hasty haha. Please don’t judge lol (I know you won’t, Im only kidding). I will visit when I return for sure! #FeetDoTravel

    • August 24, 2017 / 10:54 am

      Lol yes definitely visit next time! You walked all that way and missed out on the best bit!

    How gorgeous – I love orchids and it would be wonderful to see so many together, great tip too about choosing your gate wisely! Thanks for linking up with #citytripping
