Sentosa Flowers 2012
Celebrate the arrival of spring when you step into the world of “Enchanted Spring” at Sentosa Flowers 2012. This annual flower festival brings to you some of the rarest and most unique flowers of spring, coming in all colours of the rainbow.
Returning for the 7th time and bigger than ever, you can get a glimpse of what’s in store when you take a walk from Imbiah Station to Mount Faber. The adventure will begin with three playful kids who stumbled upon a beautifully decorated Dragon Gate and met the most powerful creature: Giant Floral Dragon. They were amazed by the ancient dinosaurs, took a peek into the deep Sea World and marvelled at the rest of their journey.
As we entered the Tea Journey, we get to learn more about Xi Hu Long Jing Green Tea (West Lake Dragon Well Tea) and how tea is made. Long Jing Green Tea is the most famous green tea in China, with more than a thousand years of recorded history. Prized for its aroma, flavour, and health benefits, it was even granted the status of Imperial Tea, during the Qing Dynasty by the Chinese emperor.
What’s special about this year’s event is the majestic sand sculpture of a dancing dragon just outside Images of Singapore by internationally-acclaimed sand sculptor JOOheng Tan. This sand sculpture took about 10 days to finish and is 10m long and 3m tall.
And everyone, Sentosa definitely has this flowers in full bloom line in this tunnel of love.
Sentosa Flowers is also making its debut at Mount Faber where guest who bought the cable car tickets can enjoy free tea in Jewel Box;s very own Dragon Gate Inn. You will also see a rainbow of interesting and intricate traditional kites in the sky.
If you are a flower lover and an avid photographer, this floral extravaganza is not to be missed!
