Take a tour around Gardens by the Bay’s delightful Autumn of Fantasies event.
From now till 24 September 2018 – which is the actual Mid-Autumn Festival Day (八月十五), Gardens by the Bay is holding their popular Mid-Autumn event around the Bay South Gardens. Enjoy these photo highlights!
Giant Lanterns Display
Drawing most attention this year is Leaping Over The Dragon’s Gate.
At 70 metres long, this lantern display depicts carps swimming against strong currents, with hopes of transforming into the dragon. Kinda like Magikarp and Gyarados from Pokemon.
If you are taking a walk around the Gardens, start from Dragonfly Lake for this first display, then walk along the path outside (nearer to MBS) so that you can see these giant sky lanterns.
After the lanterns, turn right and you will see this Ocean-themed lantern display near the Silver Garden, which is a group of smaller Supertrees.
Follow the lantern rabbits and walk along the paths until you end up at the intersection between the Gardens’ Domes. From here, you can walk towards the Golden Garden.
Sandersonia Arch – lined with lanterns resembling the Sandersonia flower (Chinese Lantern Lily) that fade between colours.
There are many activities this year and most of them take place at the Supertree Grove, which also hosts a marketplace where you can enjoy food and products created by artisans. Those who want to make wishes can do so either at the Golden Wishing Tree (Near Gardens by the Bay Dome’s Ticketing Booths) and Floating Lotus Candle (along Dragonfly Lake).
Immerse yourself between the Supertrees and catch the spell-binding Gardens by the Bay: Tales of the Moon – and maybe also relive your own Crazy Rich Asians moments here as the glimmering lights twinkle with the stars.
End your night with the last grand display – The Phoenix and the Peony.
Don’t miss the Sunflower Surprise floral display that is also happening in the Flower Dome during the Gardens’ Mid-Autumn Festival period. The floral display is best enjoyed in the day though, in my opinion – so maybe you might want to visit before sunset.
