Mid-Autumn Festival at the Gardens by the Bay is back till 18 September with a dazzling display of elaborately handcrafted lantern sets that bring to life Asian stories of the Moon. This year lantern display is at a smaller scale compared to previous year. Nevertheless, the 10 sprawling lantern sets around the Gardens looks stunning in the evening.
