Tulipmania 2013 @ Gardens By The Bay

We are now in the month of April and it is also spring time blossom for the countries with 4 seasons. This is the best time to visit Keukenhoft Garden for their pretty tulips. But wouldn't it be too costly to visit Holland with a family of four? Well, fret no more because Garden By The Bay had brought us the tulips all the way from Holland to Singapore!

A recollection of Tulipmania 2013.....


It was the first time for all of us to see real life tulips. Tulips can only survive in cold conditions therefore it is not common to find it in South East Asia. We were quite excited about the trip to The Gardens By The Bay - one of its first kind in the region. 

I would say that the best time to visit the cooled conservatories is during events being organized. There will be more floral display in the flower dome. We have received feedback  that there were not much to see in the flower dome on a normal day.

As we geared the boys with their sweaters, we were very much ready on our adventure to discover the pretty tulips in the flower dome. Tulipmania, here we come!

Large pots of tulips along the entrance of the flower dome.

We were greeted by a pair of gigantic wooden clogs. Are we in Holland?

Gigantic wooden clogs.
We could not keep track of the number of tulips because there were way tooooooooooo many to be counted. The different colors and different types of tulips left us pretty much awed. 

These were the red ones....


And the yellow ones........


Both yellow and red planted together..... Nice!


As we moved down the aisle, the centre display had very much caught out attention. We gotta get there!

There were miniature windmill and wooden clogs along the way.
