Time for...Floria 2013

Yup, it is back...Floria 2013. The annual flower show will be starting from the 22 of June until the 30th of June 2013, at Putrajaya's Precinct 2. The theme for this year is Orchid - Tropical Treasure.

I think it is a smart move to bring back the ever popular orchids as a theme flower after a rather poor use of last year's Bougainvillea theme. Opening hours are from 9am to 10pm on Mondays - Thursdays and 9am to 12 midnight on Fridays to Sundays.

As in the previous year, the 1Malaysia International Tourism Night Parade will be held at Putrajaya Lake in conjunction with Floria 2013. So do stay back at night and enjoy the floating parade and the fireworks display at the end of the event.

Admission is free so do try and make it. Lots of plant viewing and buying opportunities as well as being a photographer's haven as the people, flowers and fireworks makes interesting subjects.
