Orchid Extravaganza at Gardens By the Bay

Orchids, Rumah and Kebaya.

This is what you will find at Orchid Extravaganza at Gardens By the Bay.

This year's Orchid Extravaganza is a partnership between the Embassies of Indonesia and Thailand, together with the High Commissions of Brunei Darussalam and Malaysia.


Vanda Miss Joaquim

Do you know that Vanda Miss Joaquim is Singapore's National Flower? It is also an Orchid variety.

At Orchid Extravaganza, you will see orchids cultivated in the east tropics with a wide range of orchids featuring Singapore's national flower, Vanda, Aranda, Dendrobium and more.

There are other flowers that added more charm to this exhibit.

Here's a peek at what to expect.


Rumah is a Malay word for houses.  Here's a selection of what you can see at Orchid Extravaganza. There are also interesting artefacts and handicrafts of each nation displayed alongside the houses.
