Dedicated space for orchids

In the past four years, the Cloud Forest's changing orchid displays have brought in orchids from regions like East Asia, and Central and South America.

The new Orchid Haven is about three times the size of the original space for changing orchid displays.

Development works of Orchid Haven started last year but were held off due to the pandemic.

Beyond the changing orchid display area, there is an open space with a bench on one side for you to rest your legs and catch your breath in front of a mini water fountain.
