Now in its 17th year, this mesmerizing show displays thousands of orchids in geometric, illuminated sculptural presentations. This year's exhibit pays tribute to Singapore, showcasing the country's achievements in orchid cultivation, research and conservation (look out for nods to Singapore's dazzling Supertrees). Catch special Orchid Evenings for dancing, music and cocktails among the flowers.

After visiting the beautiful botanical gardens of the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek in Thailand, I honestly feel like I can't visit any other botanical garden—nothing could possibly compare! So I was skeptical to take my mom to the New York Botanical Garden… But we both love orchids! This was my first time visiting the NYBG. We spent two hours at the Orchid Show alone! I didn't even set enough time for us to see the rest of the garden. I know that the weather in Thailand is much more favorable towards orchids, but the orchids at this show were beautiful! Very well kept. And lots of amazing varieties! Highly recommend.
