Flower Dome Opens to World Orchid Show from 14 – 20 November 2011
World Orchid Show visitors can visit the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay for an exclusive preview ahead of its official opening in June 2012. The Flower Dome is a 1.2 hectare conservatory (about the size of 2.2 football fields) which replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean and semi-arid subtropical regions like South Africa and parts of Europe like Spain and Italy. Visitors can expect to see groves of olive trees, palms and baobabs, as well as orchid displays.
Shuttle bus services will be provided daily between Sands Expo and Convention Centre and Gardens by the Bay. For more information, Click Here.
