...If you're tired of all that air conditioning and indoor entertainment and you want to get the feel of walking in a greenhouse while actually being outdoors, head for Singapore's excellent botanical gardens to wander among all the tropical plants and thick greenery this equatorial country provide. Botanical Gardens are a great 19th century British tradition and Stamfor Raffles, the city father, was an amateur botanist himself, so this garden (not the first one built in the city) is an authentic Singapore experience. And, while I thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas tree display put on by all the embassies and civic organizations, my favorite part of the park is the National Orchid Garden, a conucopia of little beautiful tropical flowers. Make sure you spend some time withthe Canda Miss Joaquim, which is Singapore's National Flower.
