The Floral Fantasy at the Gardens by the Bay is just one of the tourist attractions inside Singapore’s most-visited destination. It’s not cheap to get in though, so I can understand that many visitors would skip it. There were only a few when I visited it, so my photos turned out great! 😀
But was it worth going inside? Well, if you are into flowers and instagrammable photos – then you are in a perfect place!
With more than 3,000 species of plants, I actually expected the place to be quite big. Perhaps, it will only take a minute from the entrance to the exit door without looking at the flowers. The whole time I was there, I finished in thirty minutes, including the 4D video ride, showing the various places to explore inside the Gardens by the Bay.
I love how they landscaped the four floral gardens with diverse species and concepts.
Combined with technology, the place feels like a dream-like realm where fairies and friendly ogres appear.
The suspended flowers and vines add mystery to a fantastical world you never know existed.
And they don’t just hang or bloom up there! They move up and down as if they choreograph themselves to the background music.
The full bloom created a world that when they are tended well, they can give so much beauty to the world.
They also have a rainforest replete with waterfalls and misty atmosphere. Don’t miss finding the tiny dart-poison frog whose colors are incredibly delightful!
After passing through the rainforest, there’s a cave-like tunnel teeming with willows, ferns, and other blooming plants.
And finally, you will be ushered to a theatre where a 4D fantasy movie awaits, “Flight of the Dragonfly.”
Where to stay in Singapore
Singapore is an expensive country. Fortunately for me, I have a friend who offered one of the rooms in her apartment. Since staying in hotels are expensive, the best option for budget travelers is, of course, hostels. You can book them via Booking, Expedia, and HostelWorld.
