The last time we went to Singapore, we were not really into palms. But we did see the orchids. Time to go back soon, I think. Thank you for posting the photos. Have you found out what the previous palms are ???

The thing about Singapore that my other half finds so annoying.... BEER is too expensive :) :). Food is excellent though, so we can't complain.

Regards, Ari :)

Kyle,

To get there first is a 4 hr flight to Australia then 8 hours to Singapore but Singapore is a good stop off place for a break if you are taking a long journey. Most flights heading north or west from oz will go that way.

Yes Ari

Alcohol is expensive but the exchange rate is good for most travellers.

Orchid pics will be coming after some more palms.

Here is Wallichia disticha
