In photos: Cherry blossoms back in bloom at Gardens by the Bay

Set amid a Japanese-inspired landscape, visitors can snap photos of not just the blooms, but also traditional elements such as a tea house, as well as Japanese rickshaws. 

SINGAPORE: Cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom in Japan and around the world, and it is no different at Gardens by the Bay's Flower Dome, home to a plethora of sakura trees until Mar 24.

The display, named "Blossom Bliss", is back for a second year after an "experimental floral display" in 2016 to see if the cherry blossoms would thrive in the tropics.

This time, more than 20 varieties of cherry blossoms have been brought in, complemented by peach blossoms. The floral display is also spread out around the Flower Dome this time, instead of being showcased only within the flower field.

Set amid a Japanese-inspired landscape, visitors can snap photos of not just the blooms, but also traditional elements like tea houses.

After the display closes, the Gardens by the Bay's research team plans to use some of the trees for trials on their flowering behaviour, the park said in a comment on its Facebook page.
