Hi All,

Thanks to pinholecam and seefei's suggestion, let's go to Mandai Orchid Garden for July outing. From the following thread, seems Mandai Orchid Garden will be gone by the end of the year :( What a pity if so:

Let's go there to look around before it's gone.



Date: 10th July 2010
Time: 8am to whenever we wanna stop
Venue: Mandai Orchid Garden


Plan: we visit the garden first, then either head to the Zoo or somewhere else, or just stop there. There are a lot stuff to see and shoot there, but mainly flowers and birds.

Please put your name here in the list if you wanna join the fun.

Here is the place:





How To Get Here:

By Car / Taxi
From the city, take the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) towards Jurong, turn off at the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE, Exit 7) and follow the tourism signage to the Orchid Garden. The journey takes approximately 30 mins.

By Bus
From the city, take SMRT bus 171 to Mandai Road, cross the road then transfer to SBS Transit Bus 138. Alternatively, from Woodlands Bus Interchange, take SMRT bus 926 (only on Sundays and Public Holidays). Journey takes approximately 1 hr 15 mins.

By Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)

The butterfly garden at HortPark is open on the last sat of each month. Mandai Orchid Garden is open every day :bsmilie:

Must be his typo lah! If open only last Sat of the month. The garden "pa mong":bsmilie:

I paid the full admission fees when I last visited the garden. Then somehow a fellow Pentaxian informed the admission staff that he is from some photo forum. He got discount and paid less than S$2.
