Our next stop was the Singapore Botanic Gardens which is a 157-acres.  It is around one-fifth the size of Central Park in New York and is the only garden in the world that opens from 5 a.m. to 12 midnight every single day of the year. The main attraction within the botanic gardens is a collection of more than 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids of orchids. Within the orchid garden, there are a number of mini-attractions such as:

VIP Orchid Garden:
The real hybrids of some of the VIP orchids are on display. Which are named after famous people like Margaret Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth II, Churchill, Laura Bush and Diana and many others from around the world.

Orchidarium:
The haven for serious orchids enthusiasts. Only the natural species are on display here in a tropical setting.

Tan Hoon Siang Misthouse:
The misthouse house contains a colourful collection of different hybrids. It also has a small collection of fragrant orchids.

Coolhouse:
The Cool House tries to recreate the environment of a tropical highland forest and so it showcases orchids that are normally only found in the tropical highland areas.

As you can see from some of the pictures the view was extraordinary!
