Southeast Botanical Gardens Winter Illumination 2020

As the Christmas and year-end season approaches, millions of lights are lit up to illuminate the Southeast Botanical Gardens -- a living museum full of brilliant blooming tropical flowers and lush greenery -- every evening through April, 5 2021.

With the lights enhancing the already beautiful garden surroundings, the illumination creates a distinctly different feeling from similar events at hotels and shopping malls around the island. So come and see it for yourself, it’s well worth a visit.

Visitors will receive a card on which they can write a wish and then attach it to the Christmas tree in the garden. They also cater a special Christmas dinner buffet from Friday, Dec. 23, trough Sunday, Dec. 25.
