Time Out says

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 Bay’s Mother’s Day social media contest. Simply post a photo or a video of this year’s Tulipmania floral display on Instagram, and explain why your mother deserves a trip to Europe in the caption.

Stop by Gardens by the Bay’s Tulipmania and check out the wide array of tulip varieties on display. You can even receive complimentary cut tulips if you head down to Flower Dome over the weekend of May 4 and 5 from 9am, while stocks last.
