Disclaimer: Photos are taken during the Yuletide Christmas Flower Dome 2014, the real place could not be so decorated as in the photos due to the season decorations.
Gardens by the bay is one of the iconic attractions in Singapore.
They have two conservatory domes – namely the flower dome and the cloud forest. We entered only into the flower dome to see the decorations of Christmas.
Single Conservatory Tickets available.
FOR BOTH CONSERVATORIES
Local Residents: $20 Standard: $28
Local Residents: $12 Standard: $15
Local: $15 Standard: $28
You can purchase the tickets online or queue at the ticketing over there itself (don’t worry the queue isn’t really that long during normal days). You can also find other information on the website itself.
Hubby’s wonderful idea of taking a photo of the ribbon. Isn’t my sister and my hubby so cute?
We are greeted by the Romantic Christmas tree so I asked us my sister to help us take a photo!
This is outside of the conservatories and the iconic tree looking structure haha. They have this Rhapsody performance using music and lights on this tree structure and it is operating daily. Admission is free because this is outside of the conservatories.
7:45 PM, 8:45 PM, 9:30 PM*
I see pretty pink roses
My sister is trying to touch ‘snow’. How cute because Singapore doesn’t snow. It’s her dream to see real snow. I am already predicting that she would love to travel too.
Of course I kind of neglected taking photos of the flowers and the many cactus since the lights are the attractions at that time. Come by soon! I entered the Cloud Forest before (not during the festive season) and here are the photos: (Photos come in a random fashion)
We were first greeted by this man made waterfall once we enter the Cloud Forest.
I don’t know why there is an exhibition of these miniatures around but I just took photos. As Singapore is a country with different races, we have different cultures and our wedding ceremonies will be different. This is the Malay Wedding iconic with their drums and their traditional Costumes.
This is an Indian wedding, the groom and bride are wearing this flower chain around their neck like a necklace. They call it the Garland. I am not sure about the symbolic meaning, learnt it in school somewhere but memory searching failed me.
A Chinese wedding, you have to serve tea to your elders to symbolizes respect and to get their blessings. Chinese do love the color red as it symbolizes prosperity and good luck. (But of course this is just pre-ceremony) We would have a wedding dinner and invite everyone to eat with Chinese courses at a restaurant.
For my wedding in the future maybe, I would have both the Chinese Wedding and the Christian Wedding as I am a Chinese and a Christian (Religion). Which interestingly, can be held together, a ceremony with God as the witness where you walk down the ale and hold a Chinese Dinner later on inviting all relatives and families.
Singapore’s National Flower: The Orchid! And that flower which is weird looking is a Carnivorous plant (Pitcher Plant) that eats flies, the saliva looking fluid is actually supposed to digest the flies and attract them at the same time.
Took a Panorama with my iPhone. Weird results though. failed attempt.
They have this kind of stones around (they say it’s icing from a real cave imported). The Overview of the Gardens By the Bay, you can clearly see the conservatory domes and the iconic tree looking structure thing haha (How do they call that), And a great spot for a great photo shoot if you want one. I’ve seen 2 wedding photo shoots ongoing the two times that I’ve been there myself.
