20th World Orchid Conference

Forgot to renew your passport? Missed your flight to Singapore? Don’t worry — you can still experience the ongoing 20th World Orchid Conference. The event known as the “Orchid Olympics” began last Sunday, November 13th, and runs until this Sunday, November 20th. You can start by exploring the wonderful photography of a local blogger. His first post, “A sneak peek at the Gardens by the Bay,” is a fabulous photo tour of Singapore’s new Flower Dome conservatories. They’re still under construction, but open for a special preview during the conference. They hold lots of beautiful orchids, along with other fascinating plants from around the world (check out the Baobabs and 1000-year-old olive trees!) His second post, “Finding a colourful little bit of paradise at Marina Bay,” has gorgeous orchid pictures from the conference itself. The second post concludes with a slideshow full of lush tropical blossoms.

Continue your travels with these fantastic World Orchid Conference pictures from a Singapore photo forum, and it’s like you’re really there. There are over 200 photos, mostly from the conference’s orchid exhibits. You’ll see more of the Flower Dome, too. Now, where’s that passport?
