Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay – Singapore

This is a continuation of our second day in Singapore. During the first part of the day, we visited Chinatown and Little India , while we were in Chinatown we found a Tourist Center and bought bunch of tickets to various attractions one can see while in Singapore.

As I have mentioned on my post about Chinatown and Little India, we bought tickets to Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquarium, Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands Skypark, and Night Safari. We would have gotten a tourist pass here too (which is totally worth the price if you’re going to use the MRT/buses frequently during your stay, as you can use it an unlimited number of times), but we already bought MRT cards.

Thinking back, we did buy a lot. But you know. #ChallengeAccepted ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

After we got back to our hotel, we fetched my brother and took a cab to Gardens by the Bay.

When we went, we were able to catch the ‘Tulipmania Rediscovered’ Event, which is still on-going and will continue to do so until May 22.

As soon as we passed the entrance, we were greeted by the sight of tulips!

 

To me, it came as a surprise that there’s so many types of tulips. It made my head spin trying to remember them. ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ

What I’m really sure of is that tulips are photogenic – as most flowers are, to be honest.

Can you spot the monkeys?

Tulip haven!

I’m not sure what this piece is trying to convey, but it does look interesting.

Hidden amongst the foliage and flowers are these familiar characters from Alice in the Wonderland.

I think you can rest and have coffee, tea or some small snack here.

Tulips galore! (・∀・)

!! It’s so pretty.

I think this is also part of the rose family?

As you walk along the tulip path, you can see various trivia such as this one. Who knew that the colours of the tulip actually have something to do with its taste? Then again, who knew that you could actually eat tulips? (´౪`)

Everything’s beautiful and nothing hurts.

More tulips, more fun trivia about them.

Out of all types of Tulips, the Seadov is the only one I remember, and the one I like the most. I mean, come on, look at them.

They have such vivid colours, and I think this photo doesn’t really do them justice. ༼ꉺɷꉺ༽

I assume that these are some leftover ‘sakura’ or cherry blossom trees.

Sakuraaaa! (⊙ᗜ⊙)

To be honest, if we weren’t running on a schedule, I would have spent hours just admiring and taking photos of the flowers. Anyway, if you’re in Singapore and you have tons of free time, I would definitely recommend that you drop by the Flower Dome to see these pretty flowers. (✿╹◡╹)

I was originally planning on including our visit to the Cloud Forest and Marina Bay Sands SkyPark on this post, but I thought better of it. So, expect a separate post that tackles our visit to both Cloud Forest and the SkyPark in a few days time!
