Guess what? Looks do matter, even if you’re not competing in a beauty pageant. The biennial Singapore Garden Festival is proof of that, with top local and international designers congregating to show off their green thumbs. Prepare to be floored by a variety of horticultural masterpieces. The main highlight of this floral festival is the impressive orchid showcase in the Flower Dome and a ‘secret garden of edibles’ – whatever that means. Pick up a wide variety of gardening tools and some grub at the marketplace too.
