When travelling to new cities we will often find our way to the “red” bus or “hop on hop off” bus. The second day of our stopover we found the bus and stopped at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Both our friends and we are avid gardeners and always are looking for new ideas or will visit a garden just to appreciate the plants and landscape artistry.
The gardens are magnificent and we found a little cafe for lunch and were entertained by the resident rooster, who was after a free feed and scooted in and out of the tables to see what rewards we would give him
The Orchid Garden is spectacular, with huge displays of Singapore Orchids in all shades of white, purple and lilac. Not to be outdone, the Cymbidium Orchids were showing all their elegance. The dramatic heliconia’s were standing in all their glory with strong red and green lobster claw like flowers
It was early afternoon when we had walked our feet sore, and we needed to get back to our hotel in time for our hire car to pick us up and get us to the airport to continue our journey to Europe, we didn’t wait for the bus to arrive, we hailed a taxi and sit in air conditioning comfort.
