From now till 20th May, Tulipmania is in Full Bloom at Gardens by the Bay (GBTB, 滨海湾花园). Please go in the morning when the blooms are most enchanting.
GBTB’s management must have spotted hardworking Boon Yee planting his tulips earlier, our whole family were invited to see boy’s labour of LovE.
We quickly tour the cacti and baobab in Flower dome.
We are too early by two days, and most of the Tulips are still sleeping, so we make do with more family portraits. We are recommending you to pop by CheekieMonkies’s blog to see Tulips in full bloom 🙂
Next stop, Cloud Forest. We plan our entry to catch the mist at 4pm.
(daily timing 9am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm).
Last stop is Satay by the Bay. This hawker centre styled joint tries to recreate the old Satay-club ambiance. We heard it can accommodate up to 1,000 diners but parking lots might be difficult to find in the evenings.
We ordered Rojak and Satays (since this is Satay by the Bay right?) from the other stall (not CitySatay). There are quite a few seafood BBQ stalls too.
Most food price starts from $4 onward, and our satay was $16 for 20 chicken sticks. Daddy loves the gravy, but too bad the parents only got 1 stick each !
Our Love story with Marina South started in 2008, when Marina Barrage just opened. Before that, Marina Bay MRT is the end of the line, full stop.
Since then, MBS, Gardens By The Bay have totally transformed the area :
– How are Tulips planted?
– All our Gardens by the Bay experiences 🙂
– Pop by our Satay and Tulips (郁金香) photos on our Fanpage.
– Latest events updates and promotion, do drop by GBTB website and Fanpage.
– Admission rates
Did you know you can take Bus 400 from Marina Bay MRT to reach GBTB? The other option is walking from Bay Front MRT. A free shuttle bus to Satay-By-The-Bay during weekday lunch period (1130 to 1430).
