Celebration of Chrysanthemums at Gardens by the Bay

[ Media Invite ]

Not all Chrysanthemums (菊花) are yellow. Go on, take a whiff, it actually smells refreshing.

Gardens by the Bay’s Celebration of Chrysanthemums runs from 24Sep to 10Nov, and seniors and kids enjoy free entry to Flower Dome! (Details here)

As it was the weekend for Mid Autumn Festival(中秋节), kids got to diy their own lanterns.

Every corner we turn, more Chrysanthemums sprang out to surprise us. Red, Gold, Purple, Pink and Yellow spread of Chrysanthemums!

Another unique flower (not Chrysanthemum), seems like it belongs to the cold temperate weather, love the contrasting colours.

Outside the Flower Dome, lanterns of all sizes and shapes continue to fascinate visitors.

Even Dragonfly bridge looks especially charming with her arches of illumination.

But the highlights must be the bright and majestic floats (Dragonboats and Palace) on the lake.
