An April 1999 trip
to Singapore by Leesa
Quote: We were very impressed by Singapore, finding it a very organised and efficient country. Do not expect, like we did, that Singapore is anything like Hong Kong. Singapore is largely flat, with a wonderful feeling of space despite the housing blocks, with plentiful patches of green parks at every turn.

Attraction | "National Orchid Garden"
The highlight though was the National Orchid Garden. There was a small entrance fee, which we considered worth it to see such a brilliantly colourful display of orchids in all shapes and sizes. The gardens themselves are a fair size, and the paths wander through lush undergrowth. Even for two non-gardeners we found these gardens a unique sight, as the swathes of brightly coloured orchids was simply amazing.
