|Spring Celebrations @ Gardens by the Bay|
Spring has arrived in Singapore!
|Celebrate the Lunar New Year at the Flower Dome|
This year, we get to transport ourselves to the joys of Spring right at our very own world class Gardens by the Bay. Spring is also the time that coincides with the Lunar New Year which is also known as Spring Festival or 春節.
Scores of Red Lunar New Year decorations adorned the trees near the entrance.

Do visit Gardens by the Bay during this festive season for a brand new take on Chinese New Year 'to do' list. There will be a total of 11888 festive blooms ( wow they really count them) on display within the gardens.The serenity of the gardens compliments the hustle and bustle of Chinatown.
It's like having a glass of fine wine with cheese.
Or in this case, chinese tea with bakwa.
