(Requested Location): Sentosa Flowers 2011!

Sentosa Flowers is an annual floral extravaganza held at Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It is normally held during the period of Chinese New Year and attracts thousands of visitors.

The theme for this year’s exhibition is “Spring Wonderland”. As this is the zodiac year of the rabbit, one can see a lot of rabbit floral displays dotted throughout the island.

This year’s Sentosa Flowers coincides with the opening of the Sentosa Boardwalk. Sentosa Boardwalk enables one to travel into Sentosa on foot, along a two-way canopy-covered “travellators”. It is also the first garden-themed boardwalk in Southeast Asia to feature tropical landscapes which are indigenous to Singapore.

The floral exhibition is divided into several zones which are spread throughout Sentosa starting from the Boardwalk with displays of Magical Lollipop Trees. Next up is the 14-meters tall fortune rabbit at Resorts World Sentosa and the 12 zodiacs at the RWS Festive Walk.

The main floral display areas are at Imbiah Lookout and Merlion Plaza where one can find flowers that only belong to temperate countries. The area is also adorned with various displays such as Easter Egg Bunnies, Zodiac Spring Rabbit, Carrot Land etc.

Last but not least, there are displays of Singapore’s very own Orchid flowers.

Overall, it is an enjoyable experience to be at one with nature. However, I feel a bit disappointed as there are no Cherry Blossoms this time round, unlike in previous years.
