The almost-200-year-old Singapore Botanic Gardens is home to well over 10,000 species of plants. With 2,000 species of orchids, it is considered one of the top tier orchid research centers in the world. Kids will love running around the lush greens, but be cautious of the meter-long monitor lizards roaming around. They’re pretty harmless, but the sight of a giant reptile might cause a fright.
