“DAHLIA DREAMS” FLORAL DISPLAY (大丽花之梦) at Gardens by the Bay

Usher in a prosperous Lunar New Year with family and friends as Gardens by the Bay celebrates Spring with its first floral display of 2017 – “Dahlia Dreams”!

Be greeted by the auspicious, gilded hues of yellow, orange and red Dahlias (大丽花) and Begonias (秋海棠) as you step into the crisp climate of the Flower Dome. Take in the beautiful sights while strolling through the Chinese garden inspired landscape, complete with a three-tier pagoda, a pavilion, moon gates, and even intricate sculptures of adorable chickens to welcome the Year of the Rooster. Adding to the festive ambiance and bringing an innovative twist to tradition is the projection mapping depicting scenes of Lunar New Year celebrations – a first for the floral displays at Gardens by the Bay!

    I was so amazed by the golden pineapple cake! So gorgeous! I really really wish I could visit Gardens by The Bay someday :O

    Chinese New Year is really a colorful celebration and we, Pinoys are starting to love this tradition. Nowadays, CNY is also commemorated here and little by little, we embrace the practices being done during this season.

    I went back to Malacca for reunion dinner with my relatives during the CNY… It’s surely a makan-makan festive for me 🙂

    Happy Chinese New Year! The Chinese community resident here in Madrid also celebrated it in a big way, but not as cool as in your city … The crafts you did with your children are precious <3

    Chinese New Year is a non-working holiday here in our country but basically the celebrations are limited in Chinatowns all over the country. We used to visit my grandparents on this day to have a family reunion and enjoy my grandma’s goodies.

    My work doesn’t realky allow me to go on long weekends. But this is a good idea if you are not yet sure how to spend the days.

    Oh wow, the shiny pineapple cake definitely caught my attention. I’m pretty overwhelmed by the hype on the chickens… especially by Mediacorp’s embarrassing guji guji dab song-dance~

    There seems to be so many activities going around for CNY and the vibes are just as lovely and festive 🙂 Will certainly check one the ones you mentioned, looks like its going to be a great start for the year 2017!

    I really want to experience Chinese New Year in China or where there is a strong Chinese culture. We do have that celebration here as well, but I guess, it is more festive there in Singapore. Maybe in the next few years I would be able to spend CNY there. 🙂 I still have to visit Gardens by the Bay despite having traveled to Singapore a few times.
