National Orchid Garden - Singapore

The National Orchid Garden is located on the highest hill in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Three hectares of carefully landscaped slopes provide a setting for over 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids, with about 600 species and hybrids on display. Over three hectares, the National Orchid Garden (within the Singapore Botanic Gardens) is the country's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. With 1,000 dazzling species of orchids, and 2,000 hybrids, explore four stunning areas based on spectacular colour spectrums representing the four seasons in an artistic blend of selected plants. Don’t miss the new star attraction, Sembcorp Cool House, walking through a forest in the clouds, featuring rare orchids grown only at altitudes of 1,000m to 2,000m.

The distinctive feature of the National Orchid Garden not to be missed is its design concept which presents the display of plants in four separate colour zones over most of its areas:

  • "spring" zone with its prevailing colours of bright and lively shades of gold, yellow and creams
  • "summer" zone with its major tones of strong reds and pinks
  • "autumn" zone of matured shades
  • "winter" zone of whites and cool violet shades

This colour zoning is achieved by a careful blend of selected trees, shrubs, herbs and orchids (mostly hybrids) with matching foliage and floral colours. The National Orchid Garden was opened on 20 October 1995 by Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
