Christmas Wonderland At Gardens By The Bay

DSC04631Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay is Singapore’s biggest yuletide fair, spanning 35,000 square metres across four main areas offering a kaleidoscopic combination of magical sculptures of light and charming festive markets, potted with food stalls and carnival games to lighten your wallet.

Gardens by the Bay is designed to transform Singapore from a “Garden City” to a “City in a Garden”, with 3 main gardens fronting the Bay waters: Bay Central Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay South Garden.

The Garden  is adjacent to the iconic 845,000 square metres triple tower Marina Bay Sands complex connected by a cantilevered 340-metre boat-shaped SkyPark, designed by renowned Israeli architect Moshe Safdie.

Some of the must-see are the Conservatories, Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, Supertree Grove, Children’s Garden and several Horticultural themed gardens. The Supertrees are amazing, and absolutely stunning when lit  with different colours in the evening.

The highlights pf the yuletide festival are the majestic Luminarie light sculptures; the Festive Market at the Supertree Grove; the Fairground near The Meadow; and the Christmas Toyland floral display in the Flower Dome. It’s been a long while since I’ve been to a fairground; fun to relive childhood. These carnival games  are incredibly clever at drawing you in and sucking your money; somehow you just think the next throw is going to win you that toy that you could have bought many times over from the money spent.

The Gardens is populated with interesting sculptures, including this floating giant baby.

To commemorate Singapore’s 50th anniversary, there was a Celebrating The Future Of Us exhibition held inside a specially crafted mutli-coloured lighted dome to give a glimpse of what the future could behold for the next generations of Singaporeans.

It has been a fun evening and one of the most iconic garden in the world.
