Tulipmania Returns To Gardens By The Bay, Visit Mini Türkiye While Frolicking Around Colourful Blooms

Tulipmania Happening At Gardens By The Bay Till 21 May

Tulipmania has returned to Gardens by the Bay (GBTB) — this time, in partnership with the Embassy of Türkiye and Turkish Airlines.

As its name ‘Tulipmania: Origins of the Tulip’ suggests, the event traces the history of tulips in Türkiye.

Apart from the glorious fields of colourful tulips, visitors can look forward to unique installations perfect for photo ops.

From the hot air balloons of Cappadocia to the ancient Temple of Artemis in Ephesus, İzmir, visitors will surely be in for a treat.

Of course, Tulipmania will not be what it is without the abundance of tulips.

According to the GBTB’s website, there will be multiple types of tulips on display this year.

Lily-flowered tulips cover the area in front of the hot air balloons of Cappadocia, bathing the space in a sea of red and yellow.

As it turns out, tulips are the national flower of Türkiye, so much so that the motifs permeate the country’s arts and crafts.

At this year’s Tulipmania, visitors can admire an array of painted İznik ware — a unique type of decorated ceramic.
