Appendix 1

1) Perfect romantic experience with special Continental-style flower arrangements (from January 8th 2020 until February 16th 2020)

This year’s Valentine’s Day is close to the Lantern Festival and Discovery Bay is creating a special East meets West experience with a series of special, romantic floral installations that reflect the island’s unique Southern European charm. 

a) D’Deck Waterfront Promenade Valentine’s Day decoration—Flower Tunnel

Visitors to the Discovery Bay Pier will be greeted by a flower tunnel at the waterfront promenade. The tunnel features romantic pink flowers and flapping butterflies that symbolise the life of Spring. This is the perfect photo spot for capturing romantic moments.

b) Fantastic pumpkin coach + Love Lock Promenade

The Love Lock Promenade at DB North is a hot spot for lovebirds. This year, Discovery Bay has decorated the Love Lock Promenade with colourful flowers and arranged an all-white crystal pumpkin coach to help you create romantic moments in a fairy-tale setting.

c) DB North Valentine’s Day installations

DB North will have two special romantic installations. The first is a spherical installation in front of the fountain that is decorated with beautiful flowers and colourful flapping butterfly patterns. Soft, atmospheric lighting adds an additional sweet touch, ensuring the perfect backdrop for photos.     

Another flower garden installation adds a sweet new chapter to your love story. Stand in the middle of the garden and be surrounded by hundreds of butterflies and Continental-style decorations. During the day, gentle sun ray gives the garden a poetic touch; whilst, at night, the special lighting creates a dreamy atmosphere.
