Gardens By The Bay
Taking inspiration from Asian customs where people penned their wishes on the sky lanterns and released them into the skies in hope of good blessings, this highlight set at Gardens By The Bay features sky lanterns “floating” up the Supertrees against a mountainscape backdrop with a pair of rabbits releasing a sky lantern marked with the Chinese character for “prosperity”. There are also more lanterns both at the Outdoor Gardens and at the Flower Dome. Read more about Gardens by the Bay Mid-Autumn Festival 2021.
