The Gardens has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site at the 39th session of the World Heritage Committee (WHC) on 4 July 2015. The Gardens is the first and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

The orchid garden is a good 800m walk from the Botanic Gardens MRT station. You need to cross the other landscaped gardens, including the rain forest to reach the Orchid Gardens. The entrance fees to the Garden is 5 SGD and you will not regret it. The National Orchid Garden is located on the highest hill in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Three hectares of carefully landscaped slopes provides the visitors a glance of both hybrid and indigenous orchids. As per the official website, the Orchid Garden boasts of 1000 species of orchids and 2000 hybrids. A rain forest replica is created within the gardens and is a treat to the eye and the camera alike. It was very tastefully landscaped and in addition to the orchids also had a beautiful waterfall, complimenting the rain forest look.
