Chinese New Year Celebrations At Gardens By The Bay
Celebrate Chinese New Year amidst colourful blooms at Gardens by the Bay. Besides floral displays, there are also a host of cultural festivities to enjoy as part of the Gardens’ Lunar New Year programme, “Spring Surprise”.

Admission charge to Flower Dome applies
This floral display features spectacular 5,000 dahlias from more than 100 varieties, as well as festive and auspicious plants like narcissus, cymbidium, chrysanthemum and golden lotus banana in a picturesque Chinese garden, framed by elegant pavilions, rotating water wheels and a majestic 35-metre-long archway of red lanterns.
Keep your eyes peeled for the exquisite Senrinzaki or “Thousand Blooms” chrysanthemum arrangements, which have been painstakingly cultivated over a period of at least one year to present the magnificent display of 500 to 1,500 flowers blooming from a single plant. To celebrate the Year of the Pig, delightful pig sculptures can also be spotted in the floral display.
