A post from home this time.  The Singapore Garden Festival has never been this big, never been this spectacular. I chose to go on the first day hoping to avoid the crowds (fat hopes!) and arrived about 6pm as it opens till 10pm.  Big mistake…you could easily spend a whole day at the Gardens by the Bay and not see all that is on offer. Best to go late morning when it opens, see the ourdoor exhibits till it gets too hot, then dive into the indoor displays till the worst of the noon day sun is gone, then reemerge for the outdoor bits again.  Bring your camera…there are so many things to shoot…
