Mid autumn Celebration at Gardens by the Bay

[ Media Invite ]

For this year’s Mid Autumn festival, Gardens by the Bay (GBTB) has something impressive lined up to wow visitors ! From 13-22Sep, there will be a 15% discount for tickets to Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. Outdoor displays are FOC, thanks to the generous sponsors!

Besides Photography contest, you can also catch Fireworks on 17th Sept 8:45pm and 21st Sept, 8pm (Meadow). Details here.

We started our tour in The Flower Dome. As usual the seasonal change at Flower Bed never cease to amaze us ! (Read our Tulips experience)

We spotted dragonflies everywhere !

Layers upon layers of colourful blooms melt our hearts, we cannot help but feel jubilant with the riot of colours.

Even the kids are mesmerised by the blooms, they are so Cooperative posing for photos. Thank goodness the Giant predatory dragonflies behind them are long extinct.

No Mid Autumn celebration will be complete without lanterns 🙂

Harmony 家庭圆满 🙂

The outdoor poster tells us that we need at least 1 hour to cover the whole Lantern exhibitions !

Take your time, enjoy the sights and reflections. You will spot a lot of bats fishing too.

As we went on a Sunday, a lot of families were also out in force at Gardens by the Bay !

Kids will love ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘World of Fairy Tales’.

The Sakae Sushi frog above is spotted all over the GBTB compound, count all of them correctly to win Sakae vouchers 🙂

Pandora 3D is highly recommended. If you like Avatar, all things blue and dreamy, you will love Pandora ! Kids could not contain their glee once they wore their 3D glasses !

School competition, children portrays all things associated with Mid Autumn. We found modern Chang Er, and we suspect some of the less docile looking bunnies might be recycled for Halloween :p

From Boon Xin and Ale’s smiling faces, it pretty much sums up our joyous experience 🙂

Gardens by the Bay – Supertree and Cloud Forest

Even when the Trees are out of focus, SuperTree Grove still look magical in the evening.

For first time visitors, the SuperTrees always look impressive from any angle, and time of the day. This is our review of Gardens by the Bay.

Day or night, from the base, or from the top. Awesome !

Peeping down from the six-storey OCBC Skyway.

The best time to explore and absorb the romantic ambiance might be during dusk. The moment before the sun sets, casting an orange silhouette across Marina Bay Sands.

Look at these two time-lapse lookalike clip of the dancing SuperTrees. At 1945 daily, Garden Rhaspody will dazzle you with light and laser show. Try staying near the centre of the SuperTree Grove. We will feel a surroud sound effect.

The trees bask majestically under the Blue hour’s illumination.

At the Cloud Forest, Waterfall and water droplets greet you at the entrance. Refreshing. Listen to the downpour, feel the wind.

At certain timings (9am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm), mist will be released! You will be enshrouded by thick white mist. Super Cool ! Look up and see the “Yellow” lights breaking through the “mist”.

Imagine walking hand in hand with your darling or family. It is wet and slightly cold, but it is such a romantic experience.

The roof window panes have a lot of reflections. At some angles, Daddy thought it felt like stargazing.
