Singapore Botanical Garden

The Botanical Garden in Singapore is free. Not only does it have great flowers and trees but a Children's area that could be a full day of fun for the kids. We did visit the National Orchid Garden the only part that comes with a fee. Orchids are my favorite flowers and I was very excited to get this opportunity to see a large display of them.

We learned about Epiphytes- a plant that grows above the ground, supported nonparasitically by another plant or object, and deriving its nutrients and water from rain, the air, dust, etc.; air plant; aerophyte.

The Children's Garden was great it reminded us of FMG in Grand rapids. Tree house, sand box, a place for kids to get wet, some educational displays about soils, and music. All that was missing were the sculptures.
