    I used to like to go to the Orchids Garden to shoot Orchids, but then that's Botanic Garden...

    Alexandra Hospital has a garden that has some flowers, but maybe not as many variety that you would like to see. And there is also a nursery near Mandai zoo, but I've always just passed by and never actually been in there, so not sure what's in there and whether you need to pay.

    Nothing wrong on Hortpark, actually that is my favorite place but would like to get some where else.

    For botanic garden...... I dont think there is 'flowers', just trees!
