Want to see orchids and amazing flowers? Have a look at the Sinagpore botanic garden.

My experience, Explo description: 

The garden was founded in 1859 by an agri-horticultural society. It was originally planned to be a leisure garden and an ornamental park, but the society also organised flower and horticultural shows.

There is an interesting anecdote about this garden : this is were Singapore’s national flower, Vanda Miss Joaquim, was discovered. Indeed, an Armenian lady, Agnes Joaquim was in her garden when she noticed a new flower. Thrilled with the beautiful discovery, she went to the Botanic garden, where administrators confirmed that a new orchid hybrid, previously unknown to science and that flowered freely year round had been created... Now, you can still admire this flower in the park.

Have a look at the curious Swiss ball at the Tanglin core.

Do not miss the National orchid garden at Central core.

My personal recommendations: 

Get there at evening for a dinner in one of the park restaurants !
