Gardens by the Bay – Orchid Extravaganza 2016

Gardens by the Bay - Orchid Extravaganza 2016 - overview

See an enthralling display of prize-winning blooms at this year’s Orchid Extravaganza at Gardens by the Bay.

Together with Singapore Garden Festival 2016, the Singapore Orchid Show displayed some 400 orchids within the Flower Dome as well.

This time, the Orchid Show is displayed along several gardens leading towards the Flower Field. A far more cramped design, but it offers visitors with a closer view to these prized specimens.

The display at the Flower Field is not as extravagant as the last edition in 2014, but feels far more immersive. The orchids are better integrated into the overall design this time, and the landscaping is far more lush.

Some people may miss the dazzling kaleidoscope tower from 2 years ago, which is replaced with a smaller ‘spiral’ this year.
