CNY 2022: Dahlia Dreams at Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay

Please share this article if you think it's awesome!

To usher in the Spring Festival and the Year of Tiger, Gardens by the Bay is showcasing their popular Chinese New Year floral display, Dahlia Dreams, from 4 Jan 2022 to 20 Feb 2022 at Flower Dome.

Even though Dahlia Dreams has been the recurring theme for the past several years at Flower Dome, every year’s exhibition is different.

This year’s exhibition features:

  • Giant coin pouches and tiger cub at the entrance
  • River Hongbao lantern set named Spring Fragrances (花香满溢) at flower field. This lantern set consists of three Chinese moon gates, a pair of rabbits and larger-than-life narcissus blooms
  • Cute tiger cubs scultptures
  • 2,000 stunning dahlias and vibrant azaleas, chrysanthemums and cymbidiums

If you’re planning to visit, I recommend going early in the morning to avoid the crowd. The Flower Dome is open from 9am to 9pm daily.

Here are the photos I took during my visit on a Saturday late afternoon.

Coin Pouches and Tiger Cub

Right after you enter Flower Dome, you will be greeted by this adorable tiger cub standing on top of a giant coin pouch. It’s quite a popular photo spot, so if you want a photo without anyone in the background, you need to be patient.

Flower Field

The centerstage of Flower Dome is none other than the flower field at the lower floor. Here, you can find a pagoda, three moon gates, rabbit lanterns, narcissus lanterns as well as two thousand dahlias, chrysanthemums and cymbidiums.

Tiger Cubs

This calligraphy-writing tiger cub is too cute not to take a photo with.
