It’s easy to get lost with all the many tourist destinations in Singapore. But for you to avoid going through that “ordeal,” it’s best that you head first to Holland Village, which is one of the country’s prime spots for people who are looking a fresh place to enjoy nature, bond with their loved ones, and know the cultural diversity of the place.
But where to go?
Well, here are some of the best tourist spots to go to in Hollan Village.
The Atlas Coffeehouse features an industrial-styled setting that gives you a fresh doze of Brazilian and Guatemalan blends. Try out their famous Black Bird if you’d want some chilling nitro brew sensation that’s fully packed for a hot day.
Chopsuey Cafe is a place fit for nature lovers. Go here and enjoy the 1930’s vibe of the Singapore rural lifestyle long ago. See for yourself the handcrafted rattan chairs while enjoying a sumptuous feast on their Chinese and American dishes. Some of their best-sellers are their coconut salad, grilled pork, and their all-famous lobster wantons and lettuce cups with minced meat.
National Orchid Garden
The National Orchid Garden is a treasure trove of floral and plant life as it houses more than 60,000 plants from orchids thriving in cold climates to pitcher plants of the tropics. Here you’ll see the Vanda Miss Joaquin which is the national flower of Singapore, as well as the cross-bred orchid of Agnes Joaquin from 1893.
Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar
Feel hungry? If so, then the Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar should be your first stop. But it’s not just a place to dine but also where you can bask on their tropical scenery with lantern lights and ornamental natural decors. Then have a taste of their creamy burrata or perhaps their famous spice-crusted snapper.
Singapore Botanic Gardens
The Singapore Botanic Gardens is another natural wonder you need to go to in Holland Village as it is named as a world heritage site by Unesco. It’s created back in 1860 featuring vast lawns, glassy lakes, and vivid gardens. It’s also where you’ll find the National Orchid Garden that is home to more than 300 plant life species.
Being a tourist and visiting those places mentioned above is already good. But why not make the experience more memorable by gifting your loved one with a bouquet of flowers? The best floral shop you can go to is Flora Moments.
