David Fairchild, Indiana Jones of the botanical world and founder of Fairchild Tropical Gardens, would rest at the Kampong (Malay/Indonesian for 'village') in-between journeys in search of beautiful and economically viable plant life. Today this lush garden is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the lovely grounds serve as a classroom for the National Tropical Botanical Garden. Free self-guided tours (allow at least an hour) are available by appointment, as are $20 two-hour guided tours.
