Christmas at Gardens By the Bay

[ Media Invite ]

We love Christmas at Gardens By the Bay.

Very few places in tropical Singapore can match Gardens by The Bay’s (GBTB) Christmas celebration. We enjoyed Poinsettia Wishes (Flower Dome) and  Christmas Wonderland last week.


“Poinsettia Wishes” at Flower Dome let us enjoyed the festive spirit and atmosphere, celebrations will end on 06 Jan 2018.



With Santa’s cabin and Lavvu (a shelter), and many more Christmas trees around, we needed more family photos but there are too many photobombs too 🙂


Toy soldiers, ringing in the Christmas carols.

Look up and you might spot Aurora (Northern Lights), from 7pm daily. I love the reflections off Flower Dome’s glass roof.

Outdoors, “Christmas Wonderland” awaits.

Entry is ticketed and gated, for crowd control. Areas like the Super Tree Grove and Meadow had Christmas markets, carnivals and even a skating rink.


We changed our tokens at “fairground” and had a go at some carnival actions.


The mini train rides were popular with the little ones.  

We loved the festive moods within the compound itself.

The highlight for Christmas Wonderland would be ice skating.

The Luminarie Lights are attractions themselves, so bright and beautiful.  They look so radiant under the dark sky, like sparkles of stars or snow flakes.

Only a small complain from us, there was no shelters at the Meadow area. We were caught in three sudden downpours and everyone needed to rush and hunt for covers.

Christmas Wonderland might have ended, but you can still enjoy Flower Dome’s Poinsettia Wishes (till 06Jan).

Christmas at Gardens By the Bay is always an amazing experience, do pop by our previous celebrations (2014 and 2016).

Our GBTB experiences are documented at this link.
Happy New Year everyone!

Gardens by the Bay(GBTB) has been decked up for Christmas. Outdoor at the SuperTrees, you will not miss this huge grandeur structure!

The “Spalliera” is the largest light structure at GBTB, measuring 31m wide and 5 storeys high! At certain timing (daily 7.30pm), blizzards will be unleashed for the little ones.

“Italian Illuminaries” lights up the path way. Walk under beautiful light arches illuminated with a myriad of colours (there is a feel of Deepavali).

Around the Supertree Grove, European-style festive market serves Christmas goodies. While you eat and shop, Christmas mood will be enhanced with “12 days of choir” at “Casa Armonica” (a mini stage gazebo).

In addition, Garden Rhapsody (Christmas Edition) will keep your family spellbound every evening in a specially choreographed 12 minutes Light-show.

You might notice a huge tent at the center of SuperTree grove too. The “Spiegeltent” is over 200 years, and made from 1000 pieces of wood. (F&B offerings at this link)

Love the little villages and chapel covered in thick “snow”. Daddy know it will be hard, but try to encourage the kids to stay off the “snow” :p

Daddy love this white flowers, they look so radiant under the moonlight.

Lettuce, Cabbage, Tomato, Strawberry at Gardens by the Bay

You heard us correctly. Gardens by the Bay (GBTB) is selling displaying daily fruits and vegetables in it’s lush Flower Dome, themed “Sugar Mountain”.

Normally, we will associate cabbage and tomato with wet market (read our AMK trip), what a refreshing change 🙂

Christmas Sugar Mountain tells the story about a pineapple boy and straweberry girl 🙂

To quote from GBTB and designer Kazuyuki Ishihara:
Stemming from Ishihara’s belief in the power of food to bridge the disparities in society, the display features two characters – a pineapple boy called “Ananas” and a strawberry girl “Berry“. Both have to live apart because of their different growing conditions until one day when they stumble upon a garden with a special mountain that provides for all their needs. In this paradise of theirs, they build a home and live happily ever after.

Fruits everywhere, if we had come a few days earlier, we might be tempted to pluck the strawberries :p

We found a cosy corner near California, our Lollipop corner 🙂

Peep-a-Flyer, behind thick foliage.

Christmas accessories and salad-ingredients side by side, where is our salad bowl?

Kids were busy trying to spot the next Tomato, Pineapple or green capsicum !

Next to us was a group of senior citizens on a community visit, and all the aunties were happily remarking about Gardens’ rich produce.

Love this plot of green leafy lettuce. Is it organic?

We can smell Christmas spirit everywhere.

This cute truck is the center of attraction.

Let us tell you more about Ananas and Berry 🙂

Reindeers were spotted ushering in the festive month.

Hello Maple leaf

Families would enjoy celebrating Christmas at GBTB.

We pop by Cloud Forest again, whose Waterfall never fail to amaze us.

From the top, we can spot Far East Organisation (FEO) playground ! FEO playground is slated to open in 2014Jan, and we will share why this playground rocks in another post.

+5 Degrees, kids have a better understanding of global warming and it’s effect.

Gardens by the Bay is celebrating “12 Days of Sweet Treats” from 13 to 24Dec. Visit GBTB Fanpage daily from 13Dec onwards to win great prizes !
