Lantern sets depicting the fantastical will adorn Gardens by the Bay this Mid-Autumn Festival. Based on the theme “Autumn of Fantasies”(奇幻之秋), these marvellous lantern sets depict a diversity of worlds unfettered by reality, from mythical creatures to larger-than-life flora and fauna. Adding to the atmosphere is a bustling marketplace at the Supertree Grove, where visitors can enjoy cultural performances, a food street, and a showcase of traditional Chinese crafts.
