Orchids by the Bay
The orchid, coming from the Orchidaceae family, is a very diverse and widespread flower. It’s a long-living plant that will regrow every year with the right care. There are about 28 thousand different species of this flower, some even growing to be a few metres tall!
The origin of the Orchid goes back to about fifteen to twenty million years ago with the most species of Orchids growing in Asia, and with it, Singapore. They, particularly the therapeutic orchid products are the best souvenirs to take back home.
Many orchids have very fragrant flowers and the ‘Vanilla’ Orchid is most commonly used for adding flavour and scent to food, perfumes and drinks. The Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’ is one of the most common orchid in Singapore, it’s is national flower as well. This flower grows freely throughout the country and can grow up to twelve buds and four blossoming flowers at a time. The petals on the top are a rosy kind of violet and the bottom petals are more coloured like mauve (a purple colour).

Orchids by the bay perfectly resembles a long walk at dusk along the bay, smelling the seawater in combination with the orchids growing alongside the road. It’s the perfect combination of feminine beauty with the free-spirit of the sea.
