Last March 8, we (my dad, brother and I) were able to visit GARDENS BY THE BAY. It comprises three distinctive waterfront gardens – Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central.
So, we decided to go to Bay South, the largest of the three gardens. With its award-winning cooled conservatories and iconic Supertrees. It brings the beauty and diversity of the plant kingdom to life for all to enjoy.
Konichiwa! The popular cherry blossom festival is back and we got the first dibs on the sakura season. This year’s floral display showcases an elegant landscape more reminiscent than ever before of the Land of the Rising Sun.
Highlights to lookout for :
Over 400 sakura trees make up the Sakura Matsuri floral display. These trees produce an assortment of cherry blossoms including those with simple five-petal blossoms, fuller blossoms known as double blossom sakuras as well as flowers of varying sizes and shades of pink.
Known as chashitsu in Japan, takes pride of place in the Flower Field.
A torii gate stands tall to welcome you to the Flower Dome.
Take a moment to look through the the circular marumado lining the pathway and reflect upon the different iconic scenes and bonsai sakuras encapsulated within.
Inspired by the Hirosaki castle bridge in Aomori. Cross the bridge to be enveloped by a mesmerising tunnel of sakuras.
Take in breath-taking mountain views surrounded by diverse vegetation and hidden floral gems.
SUPERTREE GROVE & OCBC SKYWAY
Measuring between 25 and 50 metres tall, Supertrees are designed with large canopies that provide shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of lights and sounds at nigh. Stroll along the 22-metre-high OCBC Skyway which connects 2 of these towering Supertrees. This 128-metre long aerial walkway is an experience not to be missed, giving visitors photo-taking opportunities to capture the scenic beauty of the surrounding flora.
