Kampong is the Malaysian word for "home in a garden", an apt description of this stunning attraction. This is one of only eight properties in the US owned by the National Tropical Botanical Gardens, and it offers a magnificent array of tropical fruit trees and flowering trees that are not found anywhere else. The facility, located on the site of the former home of plant researcher David Fairchild, also hosts current plant researchers, so plenty of information is provided about the wildlife that grows there. Don't miss the Indonesian-inspired house on the premises, complete with tropical lagoon, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
