Christmas Merry Medley at Flower Dome

[ Media Invite ]

Christmas is around the corner and Merry Medley aims to bring in the festive spirits. Last week, Flower Dome extended its opening hours for us and we literally had Flower Dome all to ourselves πŸ™‚

Before our event, we walked around and were mesmerised by the Violet landscape across Super Tree Grove.
Crowd was gathered to wait for the next “Garden Rhapsody” performance.

I was fascinated with the details at “The Wonders of the World”. Especially Loch Ness, kids were asking whether the monster really exists πŸ™‚

Our event started at 9pm, and the whole Flower Dome was empty! You would know how difficult it is to take a family photo without getting photo-bombed, but we suddenly had so much space to maneuver and kids even did a mannequin challenge with director Uncle Kelvin!

This is the view which greets you when you step into Flower Dome. A Snow globe with a ballerina. Look down and you will see a bigger snow globe, surrounded by Christmas trees and toy towers.

A bigger Snow Globe awaits at the Flower bed.

The lightings inside Flower Dome are glittering, we are ready to celebrate a White Christmas in Singapore

Love love love the reflections off Flower Dome’s glass roof, really felt like gazing into the stars and galaxy. So mystical and surreal πŸ™‚

Towers guarded by Nutcracker toy soldiers, I believed they would be just as illuminating in the day. So many folks were queuing to take selfies.

No matter from which angle, you can still get a splendid view.

Whether they are playing hide and seek or crafting, everyone had a lot of fun.

Festive atmosphere around the SuperTrees, ringed by European Market stalls selling souvenirs, food and beers. Love the beautifully decorated huts!

Really feels like Christmas even though Singapore is in the tropics :p

We pop into Flower Dome for some aircon and admired Christmas Toyland.
We have been to GBTB countless times, but every trip brings a new experience for us πŸ™‚

A lot of opportunities for lover birds to selfie, but too much photobombs!

Pretty flowers for the season, but I must admit our family were kept busy with the Christmas decorations rather than the flowers πŸ™‚

With the cute decorations, we are half expecting Santa to pop out at every corner πŸ™‚

During weekends, all carparks 2 to 5 will be full! If the jam starts at junction 1, queuing time will be easily 60 minutes and longer. Cars will sometime park illegally along the road next to GBTB, and so far no summons issued. We would recommend you to drop family near GBTB entrance (No3, do not drive in) and u-turn to park at red box “Marina Mall”, you will not find a carpark lot, but follow the other cars’ example. If really desperate, take MRT to Bayfront (no6) and slow walk 15min to reach the Flower Dome.

Remember to grab your tickets online 24 hours before, to avoid queuing for tickets.
