One of the more worthy tourist attractions in Singapore. It cost a mere US$4 to enter and one can easily spend a full day in it if you love orchids. It is located within the compound of the Botanical Garden although the latter is free to enter. Lots of joggers within the garden and a huge retreat within a tiny city like Singapore. I been here more than 3x and love it.
Its visitors include Queen Elizabeth II in the 70s, Margaret Thatcher in the 80s and now Prince William & Princess Catherine on Sep. 11, 2012!

The Singapore Botanic Gardens has been developed along a 3-Core Concept. The three Cores consist of firstly, Tanglin which is the heritage core that retains the old favourites and rustic charms of the historic Gardens; Central which is the tourist belt of the Gardens; Bukit Timah which is the educational and recreational zone. Each Core offers an array of attractions.
