Southeast Botanical Gardens illumination

0470S 0409S 0459S

Sparkling lights illuminate the Southeast Botanical Gardens -- a living museum filled with brilliant blooms of tropical flowers and lush greenery -- every evening until April, 5 2020.

With the lights enhancing the already beautiful natural features of the gardens, the Southeast Botanical Gardens illumination has a different feeling from similar events taking place at hotels and shopping malls around the island, making it well worth a visit.

Guests will receive a card on which they can write a wish and then attach it to the Christmas tree standing in the garden. In addition, a special Christmas dinner buffet will be offered Friday, Dec. 23, to Sunday, Dec. 25.
