Local folktales are brought to life with flowers at From Tales to Legends: Discover Singapore Stories, a SG50 commemorative floral display at Gardens by the Bay.
While orchids take center stage for this floral display, but it’s not the same as 2014’s Orchid Extravaganza. With a commemorative touch, each ‘story’ is segmented by a giant picture frame. Many stories are accompanied by exquisite wood carvings of characters, specially created for this floral display.
The main flower field is dominated by the story of the Merlion.
It is very dramatic – and a rare interpretation of an anthropomorphic Merlion, too.
Apart from an amazing amount of orchids, the highlight of this floral display would be the new interpretation of Singapore’s folklore. There are many stories behind the islands and places in Singapore, and a walk around the Gardens this time would be a chance to rediscover them.
From Tales to Legends: Discover Singapore Stories floral display is showing at the Flower Dome from now till 13 September 2015. In celebration of SG50, local residents can enjoy 50% off tickets during the Jubilee Weekend (7-10 August 2015). Local seniors (aged 60 and above) can enjoy free entry into two conservatories at Gardens by the Bay (now till 31 August 2015)
