After a tour around the world in 2014, Gardens by the Bay brings a new concept this year – a journey through stories. Asian Tales, the first of the series, brings traditional Chinese brush paintings to life.

Mountains and Goats – perfectly aligned with the roof of the Flower Dome, it brings the dramatic scene alive.

I would say that this floral display is definitely an improvement compared to past displays for the Lunar New Year. The first one – Spring Celebrations (2013) – was quite a spectacle with the immense variety scattered all over. The Year of the Horse (2014), while more harmonious, had too much focus on flowers of the yellow and orange variety.

The focus on dahlias lend a harmonious burst of colours – all but blue – at this season’s display.
