With flowering trees and petal paths, Singapore is experiencing its very own sakura season – well, almost.

On Wednesday (April 3), the National Parks Board (NParks) shared on its Facebook page a photo series of cherry blossom lookalikes, captured by people in Singapore, blooming in all their glory.

Here are all the photos, and where they were taken.


Nparks said that this is a Lagerstroemia speciosa along Tampines Road, captured by Ling Kin Joo.

There are also blooming yellow flowers during this sakura-styled season in Singapore. Andrew Tan’s photo is of these Macfadyena unguis-cati, also known as cat claw ivy, along Havelock Road.

But while Singapore’s trees have their own unique beauty, they’re still a far cry from the real cherry blossoms in Japan this spring.
