According to source, “Taiwan International Orchid Show 2012 attracted some 260,000 visitors which included nearly 3,000 foreign floral exports and buyers from abroad.”

My visit last year turned out to be a very impressive one. It is definitely worth the visit.

Orchids are a long-lasting and particularly elegant type of flower.

Their graceful appearance draws immediate attention, and their reputation as an exotic and unusual flower evokes a sense of refinement and innocence.
