What are the Best Luxury Orchid Shows in the World?

In the depths of winter, sometimes the spirit needs a reminder of the glories of spring. Surely that’s why so many of the world’s best orchid shows happen in February and early March. For those who love gardens and are becoming deeply weary of cold and snow, here’s our Dandelion Chandelier curated list of the best orchid shows around the globe, with their 2018 dates and themes. Even if you only travel to these in your mind, we hope it’ll leave you feeling restored.

Best Luxury Travel Destinations in the Month of February

Where will February take you? Where should it? The Winter Olympics kick off in South Korea, so depending on your proclivities, you might want to head there. Or you could celebrate Chinese New Year in any number of luxurious locales. If you love crowds, there are lots of other options, too, as pre-Lent revelers take to the streets in cities all over the globe. On the other hand, if it’s solitude you seek, consider a trip to Tasmania. Of course, February is the month of love and passion, so a romantic destination should definitely be on your consideration list. And while it may seem distant, spring is just around the corner, and a visit to one of the world’s loveliest gardens in the Americas, Asia or Europe – or at least to an indoor orchid show — might hurry along its arrival.
