Botanical Gardens of Singa·po·re

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is at least 156 years old.
There is no admission fee unless you want to see The National Orchid Garden. It is located within the main gardens and is at the forefront of orchid studies and a pioneer in the cultivation of hybrids, complementing the nation’s status as a major exporter of cut orchids. Thanks to the equatorial climate, you can see the largest orchid collection of 1,200 species and 2,000 hybrids.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens has a small tropical rainforest of around six hectares in size, which is older than the gardens themselves. The rainforest and its bigger cousin at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve are located within the Singapore’s city limits.

There is a lovely coffee shop with variety of freshly squeezed juices and tasty options of stir fries and other Asian inspired dishes.

Fun Fact: Singapore is one of the only two major cities with a tropical rainforest within its city limits, the other being Tijuca Forest in Rio de Janeiro.
