Earlier this week I popped over to Sentosa with a couple of friends to see the Sentosa Flowers a festival of flowers that has taken place every year on Sentosa since 2005. The floral exhibition, traditionally ushers in the Lunar New Year and is a chance to see some beautiful displays.
This was my first visit to the festival and also my first time walking over the boardwalk since it opened. I'd recommend the boardwalk if you have not yet tried it out for yourself. The cooling breeze from the water, plus the option of travellators (so you do not even have to technically walk that far) and shelter from the sun make it a pleasant alternate way of getting across to Sentosa.
The displays at the festival were beautiful with vibrant colours, carpets of flowers and some very clever floral models, such as the humming birds in the photo above. It is clearly a popular event too as the place was full of visitors enjoying the show. You probably would not need much more than a morning or an afternoon there but it is worth taking a look if you find yourself that way.
Sentosa Flowers 2012 is on now until 29 January 2012, open from 10am to 10pm, admission to the festival is free.
You can get to Sentosa via the Sentosa Boardwalk (admission fee to Sentosa island via the boardwalk is $1), by Bus / MRT (admission charges prevail), by Sentosa Express (admission charges prevail), by cable car (admission charges prevail) or by car / taxi (admission charges vary according to time period).
