Gardens by the Bay

The Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden.

And plenty of educational places to get lost in and of course the spectacular Supertree Grove.

We visited the Gardens By The Bay during the day. The first thing that can’t be missed is the Supertree Grove. These trees are absolutely MASSIVE, much bigger than I thought.

The Supertree Grove is composed of large tree like structures that jut out from the ground and from vertical gardens, throughout the park.

Between 25-50 meters tall. As I walked around I noticed a skybridge. People can buy access for S$8.

A good time to visit, is as the sun is setting. There is a show at 19:45 and 20:45 that is a stunning array of lights and music and is great for all ages. Definitely worth it to stay!

There are a number of restaurants and cafe’s at Gardens by the Bay that is located at the Satay by the Bay.

With a McDonald’s on site to keep the kids happy.

Flower Dome and Cloud Forest Conservatory

Also there is the Flower Dome features seven different “gardens” as well as an olive grove with a bistro and a central changing display field has also been incorporated to enable flower shows and displays to be held within the conservatory.

And then there is the Cloud Forest Conservatory is built over a number of levels.

It successfully attempts to replicate the cool moist conditions located in tropic mountain areas located in South East Asia, America and South America.

It’s a lovely cool respite from the heat outside, especially the waterfall mist when you first walk in.

People can buy access the two conservatories for S$28.

Wrapping Up

I really enjoyed Gardens by the Bay, I think while this area was beautiful during the day, I think it would be something spectacular at night.

I would head there at 5pm, into the Conservatories to be out in time for the lights to come on.
