After a lengthy closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Floral Fantasy at Gardens by the Bay has once again reopened its doors for visitors to admire its beautiful blooms this month!
Be greeted by a lush, colourful tableau of flowering plants suspended from the ceiling, which move sinuously in mesmerising fashion at Dance, the first of the four garden landscapes of Floral Fantasy.
Be enchanted by the calming sounds of the Float, where the water from the bubbling brook flows through the landscape, and a hundred fuchsia hanging overhead. Meet Nobu, the garden guardian who watches over his plants, and if you're observant enough, you might even find his nine fairy friends hiding within the flowers.
Take a stroll down Waltz amidst a rain oasis and waterfalls of flowers among cascading rocks and winding driftwood. Imagine walking through a forest in the rain when you explore this garden landscape and ponder about the fragility of our biodiversity. Spot the Poison Dart Frogs on display here; despite being tiny, they are hard to miss because of their brilliant colours.
Enter the last garden landscape, a cave-like space that is ringed with terraced rock formations, Drift. The semi-enclosed space is set aglow with soft lighting, creating an enthralling atmosphere.
Floral Fantasy showcases more than 3,000 plants of more than 150 species, including some curious plants such as the 'Surfinia purple vein' petunia, which are amethyst blooms with a delicate lacework of vibrant purple veins tracing the centre and Fried Egg Tree, with glossy buds that bloom into white flowers with yellow stamens that resemble an egg cooked sunny-side-up!
Do note that to ensure safe distancing and better crowd regulation, you are required to pre-book your visit date and time before your trip to Floral Fantasy.
