These Wonderful Gardens In Singapore Are The Perfect Attraction For A Day Tour.
One of my all-time favourite parts of our trip to Singapore was visiting the Gardens by the Bay attractions! They are breathtakingly beautiful and on my list of must-dos! I can’t wait to go back.
When we went to Singapore we stayed at Marina Bay Sands, you can read more about our stay there in my Details and Tips on Staying at Marina Bay Sands post and my Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool post. We loved staying there and not far away from the hotel is the Gardens by the Bay!
GARDENS BY THE BAY
Gardens by the Bay is a beautiful garden along the bay and ocean in Singapore. It is a 250-acre nature park on the bay that is both educational and entertaining. There are many plants grown there that seem like they aren’t even part of this world! You can read more about the Gardens by the Bay here. The three places that we went while we visited Gardens by the Bay were the Super tree Grove, the Flower Dome, and the Cloud Forest. You can read more about them below:
SUPER TREE GROVE
This grove consists of an outdoor garden with real plants and man made trees that are HUGE (80-160 feet high). There is an elevated walkway, the Sky way, between two of the largest Super trees for visitors to enjoy a gorgeous panoramic view of the gardens.
Every night, at 7:45 pm and 8:45 pm (as of this writing), the Super tree Grove comes alive with a coordinated light and music show known as the “Garden Rhapsody”. It was mesmerizing and beautiful to watch. You will be dazzled to see this show and it’s FREE! Get a sneak peek of the Super tree show in the pic below.
When you visit the flower dome you enter a world of springtime gorgeous-ness! The Flower Dome showcases exotic plants from five continents which are displayed in all of the nine different Gardens.
Step into the Flower Dome and stand in awe of nature. Spectacular and innovative, it is the largest glass greenhouse in the world as listed in the 2015 Guinness World Records! Be amazed by changing display of flowers and plants from the Mediterranean and semi-arid regions.
Often referred to as the “Cloud Mountain”, this is an intricate greenhouse type structure with plants such as orchids, ferns, peacock ferns, bromeliads, etc.. It consists of many levels, each with a different theme, including.The lost world, The cavern, The waterfall view, The crystal mountain, The cloud forest gallery, The cloud forest Theatre and The secret garden.
High in the tropical mountains, plants absorb the refreshing mist and abundant rainfall, releasing the water gradually to create a constant, long-lasting supply for the land beneath them to support even more plants!
