Those who love tulips will be pleased to know that Gardens by the Bay’s Tulipmania has returned to the Flower Dome this year. In honour of its 10th edition, the floral display pays homage to its inaugural showcase in 2013. The tulips are once again planted in rows of singular colour, much like the iconic tulip farms in the Netherlands. Adding to the charm are traditional Dutch landscapes, including farmhouses with thatched roofs, a watermill, as well as a traditional windmill. This year’s display also blends the traditional with the modern, highlighting technological advancements such as wind turbines and vertical farms. Keep an eye out for the new tulip varieties added to this year’s display, like the unique Tulipa Purple Circus with its pink and purple spots, and the Tulipa Double Negrita – a double-petaled tulip with rich, velvety purple petals. Don’t miss out on the one-of-a-kind double-petaled daffodils alongside the vibrant tulips, which have also been sourced from the Netherlands. Be sure to check out the 104 Delft Blue miniature houses from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines – all of which are modelled after real Dutch houses and buildings. From now until May 26, 2024, the airline is giving away a pair of round trip tickets to Amsterdam – all you have to do is correctly match five Delft Blue Houses to their corresponding house numbers to enter the draw. You can also stand a chance to win a pair of round trip tickets to any destination in Europe by taking part in Gardens by the

Orchids of Angkor Wat

Step into the ancient world of the Khmer Empire at Orchids of Angkor Wat, the latest floral display at Gardens by the Bay. From now to September 8, visit the Cloud Forest to view 50 fascinating orchid species and hybrids of Cambodia alongside installations that recreate the iconic city of Angkor.  This is Gardens by the Bay's first collaboration with the Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Singapore. The country is home to at least 500 species of orchids, of which only slightly more than half have been documented. Nevertheless, orchids hold special meaning in Cambodian culture – standing as symbols of nobility and hallmarks of sacred beliefs in carvings throughout Angkor.  Some unusual orchid species to look out for include the slipper orchid, a slipper-like flower that lures practices "pollination by deceit" – insects that are lured by its bright colours fall into its pouch, pick up pollen, and escape without getting any nectar in return. Also keep your eyes peeled for Vandachostylis and Dendrobium Adastra, the latter of which will delight with its "waterfall of flowers".  Peppering the display are installations inspired by Angkor Wat, the highlight being a 3.5-metre recreation of the UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed Hindu-Buddhist temple complex itself. Glimpse the gateway to Angkor Thom (the city that includes Angkor Wat) and view five stone replicas on loan from the Cambodia-based Artisans Angkor, a workshop that works to preserve the craftsmanship of Cambodian artisans.
