I went back to the Gardens by the Bay yesterday for the Singapore Gardens Festival again.
As I expected, the Flower Dome (where Orchid Extravaganza is held) was less crowded on a weekday. I arrived at about 11am. Although there was a long queue for the competitive orchids, the queue for the 10-m tall Orchid Kaleidoscope which is the centrepiece for the show, was relatively short. I had to queue for only about 5 minutes to get in. Phew!

The Orchid Extravaganza orchid display was designed by award-winning landscape architect, Mr Junichi Inada
The kaleidoscope is certainly very attractive and impressive. I was mesmerized by it! It is definitely a not-to-be-missed exhibit in SGF 2014. Although the SGF 2014 will end on 24 Aug, the orchid display will continue until 21 Sep, 2014.

Feeling satisfied that I have made it to see the Orchid Kaleidoscope, I moved on to spend the whole afternoon visiting the other parts of SGF 2014. I will be writing about it next. 🙂
