Featuring larger-than-life “treats”, this year’s Christmas floral display features whimsical confectionary inspired by the real sweets from the Nordic countries. The candy are set among plentiful poinsettias and Christmas trees, along with other “festive plants” such as cyclamens, skimmias, violas, helleborus. The first display already features a candied apple Christmas carriage, pulled by gingerbread animals.

The other highlight is the rocky cascades, or “waterfalls”, which are right beside Satay by the Bay.

As admission is free and the environment does look quite relaxing, we can’t quite complain about Kingfisher Wetlands.

It’s great that Gardens by the Bay has always been expanding and redeveloping its offerings since its launch in 2012. As next year would be the 10th Anniversary of Gardens by the Bay, I wonder the future holds for this iconic Singapore attraction.

I can’t say much about actual birdwatching, but during my two visits there are a lot of people with telephoto lenses and birdwatching equipment.
