This Instagram sensation from Brooklyn has got stars like Lizzo, Margot Robbie and Solange raving. If you don't know what it's all about, it bills itself as an "adult funhouse of style, culture, and creativity" – featuring 29 rooms of interactive installations, quirky workshops, and exciting live performances.  Now, 29Rooms is dipping its toes into Asia and Singapore is its first stop. Running for a whopping 10 weeks, the sensory playground is bringing the same mix of multi-sensory experiences built on the theme of Lost & Found. Vibrant, thought-provoking, and endlessly Instagrammable, 29Rooms Asia is one you cannot miss. Here are six exhibits you'll want to check out.  Forest Theatre Photograph: Daniel Iskandar 29Rooms sets the tone of the exhibition with its first room, Forest Theatre, an atmospheric 'forest' space filled with thought-provoking questions. Walk among misty, backlit trees and don't forget to pause and contemplate question like "When was the last time you switched off?".  Paradise Found Photograph: Daniel Iskandar Okay, 'fess up – who spends hours on the toilet scrolling on the phone?

From now till April 9, the Flower Dome will be flush with delicate pink flowers alongside replicas of iconic Japanese landmarks, and exciting cultural activities.  Photograph: Daniel Iskandar This year's floral display is inspired by the theme of travel. The centrepiece is the Sakura Express, a blue and pink train carriage surrounded by a riot of sakura. This is your starting point for a scenic trip across Japan's landscapes, where you can spot landmarks and attractions like Mount Fuji, Rabbit Island, and the deers in Nara – all against the charming backdrop of cherry blossoms.  See the flowers reimagined in four beautiful ikebana displays too, created for Sakura 2023 by Ikebana International Singapore (Chapter 135). For Pokémon lovers, don't miss the Pokémon Forest and more appearances of first-generation characters throughout the floral display. On March 18 and 19 only, you can also see Sakura Afro Pikachu at its first meet-and-greet outside Japan.  Photograph: Daniel Iskandar It's not a mere sight-seeing trip at Sakura 2023. For the first time since the pandemic, Gardens by the Bay is bringing back Japanese cultural activities for the public.
