At the 2016 Taiwan International Orchid Show which is held March 12-21 in the facilities of Taiwanese Orchid Plantation (TOP) in Tainan, a display of rare monkey orchids from Peru and Ecuador is an absolute highlight. The special display refers to the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese zodiac. The monkey orchid – Dracula simia – grows in the mountainous regions of Ecuador, Colombia and Peru and looks like the grinning face of a very small monkey.
Over the past years, the exhibition has attracted about 300,000 visitors per year, including some 3,000 foreign experts and buyers. This professional show is also open to the public.
