Sentosa Flowers 2013

Sentosa Flowers 2013

Sentosa Flowers is back again, with Joys of Spring as this year’s theme. For the first time, the event is held along Palawan Beach, including the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia. Also a first: There is an admission charge of $5 ($4 if you buy tickets a day earlier).

I did not attend last year’s event, but I did back in 2011. It was held along Imbiah and some parts of Resorts World Sentosa. It was free before, which meant that there were too many people around.

This year however, it seemed a lot less packed, and also because the event spans across Palawan Beach. However, I felt that it wasn’t as interesting as 2011 – this year, the flower arrangements are interesting (snakes and stuff), but the “fillers” are all the same, and there are sections where flowers are placed on the beach. There is also too much Chrysanthemum (and a limited variety, too).

Given the unpredictable weather cycles (Minutes of rain and sun) this week, the photography experience wasn’t enjoyable. This is made worse when floral arrangements were placed far apart and there’s nothing of much interest in between. While the admission charge isn’t that high, it just doesn’t seem as satisfying as visiting the Flower Dome.

Anyway, if you choose not to brave the weather, enjoy the photos on my blog instead.

Sentosa Flowers 2013 - On The Bridge

If you cross the bridge over to the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia, you will discover what my friend calls Sunflower Island.

Sculpted by Joo Heng Tan, this sand sculpture of a snake (called Glittering Sandy Snake Trail) can be found near the bridge to the Island.

Overall, it can take about two hours to leisurely stroll the entire Sentosa Flowers event area. I’d say that people intending to visit should bring umbrellas, sunblock lotion and bottled water.
