The exhibition not only offers a visual treat but also provides an opportunity to learn about the orchid's rich history and diversity. Whether you're an experienced orchid enthusiast or a curious visitor, the show is a must-see experience, promising to leave you spellbound with its breathtaking display. After exploring the fascinating world of orchids, enjoy a serene and peaceful atmosphere as you stroll through the Garden's lush greenery.

Tips for a Memorable Visit

To ensure that your visit to the New York Botanical Garden is unforgettable, here are some tips to keep in mind:

Firstly, plan ahead. The Garden is vast, and you don't want to miss any hidden gems. Familiarize yourself with the Garden's map before you arrive, and prioritize which areas you want to explore first. ( I wish I spent less time in the gift shop and went straight to the conservatory to beat the crowd!!)

Secondly, wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Dressing in layers will allow you to adjust your clothing to your comfort. The temperature that night was about 20 degrees in difference between the outside and the conservatory.

Thirdly, bring a camera or smartphone to capture the Garden's picturesque scenes. Whether you're an amateur or professional photographer, there are countless opportunities to snap the perfect shot.

Lastly, take your time and enjoy. The Garden's vastness and beauty can be overwhelming, so remember to take breaks and soak in the tranquillity. Whether you're enjoying a picnic on the lawn or relaxing in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the Garden provides a sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

In a world of constant chaos and noise, the New York Botanical Garden's orchid show offers a peaceful oasis for all to enjoy. Lily Kwong's stunning designs, inspired by Chinese mountainscapes, make for breathtaking displays that will transport you to another world. Through this experience, I can't help but reflect on how it connected me to my natural heritage. During lunar new years, orchids would fill up our homes because it represents good luck, and seeing these beautiful orchids brought back so many fond family memories.

This exhibition is a must-see event! As Oscar Wilde once said, "Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead." The orchid show is sure to filled my heart with love, and remind me of the beauty that surrounds us every day. Subscribe to my youtube channel for for planty adventures here.
