Lunar New Year at Gardens by the Bay Singapore

Dahlia Dreams Gardens by the Bay

Welcome the New Year at Gardens by the Bay! Kicking off 2018 is the “Dahlia Dreams” floral display, which features a delightful array of dahlias blossoming amidst the oriental setting of a Chinese courtyard garden. Visitors can also look forward to a host of cultural festivities, including spectacular ultraviolet (UV) light performances featuring the debut appearance of the UV Lotus Dragon and UV Northern Lions in Singapore, as part of the Gardens’ Lunar New Year programme “Spring Surprise”.

Here’s what you can expect at Gardens by the Bay from 19 January to 4 March as follows: 


Inspired by the picturesque landscape of Chinese imperial gardens, Dahlia Dreams welcomes Lunar New Year with an elegant display of dahlias, camellias, lagerstroemias and bromeliads in a courtyard garden setting. Auspicious Southern Lions greet visitors as they enter while Chinese guardian lions (also known as “Foo Dogs”) stand guard. To celebrate the Year of the Dog, intricate diorama cutouts, exquisite driftwood sculptures and ornamental topiaries in the shape of dogs can be spotted in the display. Adding to the majesty are palace lanterns and umbrella curtains that embellish the garden. On selected days in February, the God of Fortune will make an appearance in the Flower Dome to spread wealth and prosperity.

Flight of Fancy at the Beautiful Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay is easily one of Singapore’s best attractions. Many are enchanted by the beautiful Gardens and it is very popular with locals and tourists. It is also one of our favourite family outings to visit the Gardens. 


We are here at the Flower Dome. It is a cooling place as it replicates the cool-dry Mediterranean regions like California, parts of Italy, Spain and South Africa to house a wide collection of flowers and plants from all over the world. 


The theme of display at Flower Dome is Flight of Fancy on the day we visit.

What is it? Follow me and  you will find out.



Flight of Fancy features hot-air balloons hovering over a field in the Flower Dome.
