Poinsettia Wishes Floral Display

Discover the wonders of a Nordic Christmas village, abloom with beautiful Poinsettia flowers.

Experience a Nordic Noel this festive season, as Flower Dome is transformed into a wintry wonderland. An oversized lavvu – a tent-like dwelling used by the indigenous Sami people from Sápmi – takes centrestage, ensconcing visitors within its cosy interior.

Outside, poinsettias, amaryllis, Christmas trees and other lovely flowers and plants mark the season. Santa’s presence is everywhere, from his reading cabin and post office where he receives letters from well-behaved children, to a toy workshop manned by Christmas elves, and even a candy store.

On selected days in December, visitors can look forward to meeting Santa Claus, who has travelled to the tropics all the way from Lapland. For an extra special experience, visit after dusk to see the floral display aglow with pretty lights, as a projection of Northern Lights* weaves its spellbinding magic!

*Northern lights projection starts from 7.00pm onwards.
