Since the beginning, Gardens by the Bay has done thematic displays for the Lunar New Year. Even the very first one had toy snakes on certain trees, but the beautifully elaborate concept started two years ago for the Year of the Horse.

The year of the Monkey is a favourite for many attractions this year, due to its easy association with the Monkey King from Journey from the West.

At the Flower Dome this year? The famous ‘花果山’ (Mountain of Flowers and Fruits) of course:

Lots of monkey business all over the flower field.

The paths around the flower field is quite plain, although the corner with the lanterns is lovely photo spot.

The Gardens is acquiring sculptures of every zodiac animal. Something bigger planned when all 12 animals are gathered, perhaps?

Now, on to the flowers… Despite being Dahlia Dreams, it wasn’t as imaginative or spectacular as last year’s Lunar New Year-themed display. Generally as a whole, the display is lovely, but those who have seen past editions might feel disappointed.
