Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay has always been one of our Singapore Food Blog‘s favorite date spot. It’s different from the usual movie and shopping date ideas, and just being surrounded by all that greenery is particularly refreshing especially after spending so much time in front of a computer at work.
Gardens by the Bay is split into 2 sections, the cloud forest (which we would cover in another article another time) and the flower dome. The flower dome has it’s permanent exhibits that showcase flowers & plants from various countries, and they also time to time bring in seasonal exhibits such as Cherry Blossom etc. One that got us particularly excited about is the recent Tulipmania (available at Flower dome from 1st April~ 7th May). Nicole is a big Tulip lover and because I’ve never bought her any (why buy one flower when you can buy a ticket to flower dome and see a million), I knew i had to bring her there.
As per it’s name, Tulipmania has Tulips of all different origins, colours and types. This year, Gardens by the bay has also made special arrangements to infuse Art into ordinary flowers by incorporating a Van Gogh inspired theme to the Tulips. One of the more prominent one is where the Tulips are specially arranged to resemble Van Gogh’s world famous art piece, “The Starry Night”.
Make the best of all the pretty pictures you take by printing them into a personalized luggage tag. Simply snap your selfie within Tulipmania, post it onto you Instagram with the hashtag #KLMluggagetag #GBTulipmania and just present your photo to the photo counter to have it printed FREE! *Limited to 500pcs between 15th~29th April 2017.
If a luggage tag doesn’t excite you, how about a trip for 2 to Amsterdam? When you’re done exploring all of Tulipmania and the rest of Flower Dome’s permanent exhibits, don’t forget to source out the KLM stand (directly on top of the Starry Night exhibit) and snap a picture/selfie there too! Again, upload the picture to your instagram (set to public) with the hashtags #Gardensbythebay #GBTulipmania #KLM and a caption of why you love tulips and you stand to win their Grand Prize; Economy Class tickets for 2 to Amsterdam with Free tickets to Van Gogh Museum, courtesy of KLM. Unfortunately thou, if you are reading our Travel Blog from abroad, this contest doesn’t apply to you as it is strictly for Singaporeans only.
If you or your partner loves flowers, or Tulips in particular, you should totally bring him/her there for a romantic date which just might end you guys up in Amsterdam!
*PS Since you are in the area, you can also complete your romantic date by heading to Artbox Singapore at Marina Bay Sands
