Gardens by the Bay Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival 2018

It has been four months since our last visit to Gardens by the Bay. So, it’s high time to visit the beautiful garden again before our annual membership expires in May. And I’m SO excited to know that Gardens by the Bay is displaying pretty cherry blossoms at the Flower Dome. I can’t wait to step into the cooled conservatory and imagine myself in Japan viewing the pretty cherry blossoms. Oh, have I mentioned that I’ve never seen a real Sakura before? (pardon me for being so sua-ku)  😛

Sakura Matsuri, which means Cherry Blossom Festival, is now taking place at Gardens by the Bay from 16 March to 8 April 2018. During this period, visitors to the Flower Dome can experience the pretty pink blooms which captivate Japan during this time of the year. Want to catch a glimpse of Japan’s cherry blossoms? Let’s go!  😎

Sakura Matsuri 2018

We came here on 18 Mar, Sunday – and it was super packed! I was wondering if it’s because of the last day of school holiday, or the start of this festival. The carpark was full, we waited for half an hour before we could park our car. And there was also a queue to get inside the Flower Dome. Nonetheless, the beautiful sight of Sakura that greeted us are well worth our queuing time!  😀

Here’s a red torii gate near the entrance of Flower Dome. As we walked through it, we were mesmerized by the view of Sakura trees at the Flower Field below.
