Apart from dahlias, expect to see and take photos of other CNY floral favourites such as azaleas, chrysanthemums and cymbidiums.

Lantern Globe

Lanterns play a big part in CNY decorations as they symbolise luck, prosperity and the reunion of people.

The lantern globe features more than 200 red lanterns and you can walk through the golden moon gates to admire them from within the globe!

The moon gate is a circular opening that acts as a passageway for visitors in traditional Chinese gardens.

Paired with lots of red and yellow or gold, the lantern globe display will surely bring you a year of good fortune and happiness when you walk through it!
