With the nation moving into a state of full-fledged festivities, Gardens by the Bay has pulled out all the stops with this Lunar New Year’s floral display, featuring flowers like dahlias and begonias in auspicious shades of vibrant red and yellow. On theme for the year of the rooster, look out for the many different adaptations of sculptures, moon gates, pavilions and more. A definite must visit for friends and family alike.
