The festival this year feels more compact. Due to the Singapore Garden Festival, the Meadow area of the Gardens was not used for the event. Instead, lanterns can be found along the path that circles around the Bay South Gardens. In a way, this makes walking around the lantern displays much easier.

There are thematic areas for lantern displays. The first one here is “Racial Harmony”.

This is a free event, so I highly recommend visiting the gardens, especially if you would like to experience Chinese culture. Lots of performances, activities and even food (!) can be found at the festival. It’s also a great time to bring out those lanterns and walk around like a kid, or not..

Also, check out photos from the festival last year.
