Gardens by the Bay
Situated at the heart of Singapore's new downtown – Marina Bay – is the 101-hectare premise of Gardens by the Bay. The project was initiative to transform Singapore from a “Garden City” to “City in a Garden”, and it is huge step towards reaching that goal.
In true Singapore fashion, this garden is no ordinary one, it is full of modern amenities like air-conditioned walk-throughs, super-trees that are the main feature of a nightly lights show, an artificial waterfall, and so much more. One might even call this garden futuristic, but however it is described, we know that is fascinatingly beautiful and definitely worth a visit!
The nature park is separated into three areas – Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central – each featuring a different theme. Bay East Gardens are where you want to be at sundown, because you can get an unobstructed view of the Singapore skyline from here. Bay Central is the waterfront promenade that connects the other two areas, and has other amenities like a food court.
But Bay South, the largest and most popular part of the garden, is where the main attractions of the park lie. This includes Supertree Grove with its massive “trees” that are vertical gardens made of more than 250 species of plants, Flower Grove that houses plants and flowers from the parts of the world that have semi-arid tropical climates like Australia, South America, and the Mediterranean, as well as Cloud Forest, replicating the cool moist climates and horticulture of tropical mountainous regions of the world.
Other features of Gardens by the Bay include conservatories and greenhouses, a children's garden, horticultural themed gardens, lakes, and more. And if you want a complete view of Gardens by the Bay from outside, you can head to the Marina Bay Sands!
