The Botanical Garden of Singapore is impressing by its size and variety of plants. There you can take a walk through the rainforest, see unusual sculptures, find out the time on a sundial, have a picnic near the lake, and hug huge trees:)
In this post, I’ll tell you about the two our favorite places in the botanical garden, there are National orchid gardens and alley with bonsai.
National Orchid Garden
The highlight of the botanical garden is the pleasant orchid garden. There are orchids of different colors and sizes, it’s an array of riches.
I was surprised to see an unusual gray orchid
and orchid which was similar to the flower, growing in the Russian forests, we call it “Cuckoo boots” because of its shape like shoes of little bird.
Here you can see not only orchids but also other interesting plants. it’s very pleasant to walk on wooden paths in the shade of trees.
We were incredibly impressed by arches of flowers and plants.
You can visit Cool Garden, where you can enjoy the coolness and continue exploring the plants. If you are tired, you can use benches to sit and take a rest.
You can also do this near one of the numerous waterfalls on the territory.
After walking in the orchid garden, we went to the place where the bonsai is growing. We like these small trees very much and given the fact here is some special place with them we couldn’t miss it. On the map of the Botanic Gardens, this place is on the way to Swan Lake next to the Sun Garden.
Bonsai here are very diverse, some of them bloom, some just have a very bizarre shape.
Each of them is beautiful and unique in its own way.
