flower garden

How was your weekend everyone? My friend from Tokyo has been visiting me for the past week and we did a little site seeing around Singapore. It gets so hot and humid during the day in Singapore, I decided to take her around the new Flower Dome at Garden By the Bay.

Singapore has done a great job in building a lot of entertaining travelers spots. Despite all the glass windows, the garden dome is cooling so if you ever needed to take guests from out of town, this is the place.

Spectacular and innovative in design, this Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean regions like South Africa, California and parts of Europe. I especially liked the South Africa section. 00251213-141424.jpg

I would also recommend going there at night. We didn’t get to go this time, but posting a picture of which I took few months ago.

It is a complete Avatar world.

Amazing.

Later in the afternoon, we went to the Raffles Hotel Afternoon tea. The hotel is a colonial style hotel where there is an arcade of shopping boutiques where you can enjoy some of the local brands. The afternoon tea comes with a Dim Sum buffet so you get a little bit of a Chinese food taste there as well.
