My last full day in Singapore involved visiting the breathtaking Gardens by the Bay, a nature park which covers 250 acres of land. Located a short drive from Singapore’s cruise terminal it’s a great stop for those visiting on a cruise liner.
The Gardens comprise of various areas. The most impressive being the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and Supertree Grove.
The Supertrees dominate the Gardens skyline and you can even use the Skywalk to walk between two of the largest. There is also a restaurant and bar at the top of one called IndoChine. The venue offers 360 degree views of the Gardens and the surrounding area.
The Flower Dome quite simply boasts the most beautiful collections of flowers I’ve ever seen. It also has an Olive Tree Grove which includes one tree which is over 100 years old.
The Flower Dome is also home to an amazing event space. The area has the most incredible ceiling. Thousands of bauble size lights are above you and can be changed to whatever colour you like.
Adjacent to The Flower Dome is the incredible Cloud Forest. A huge structure sits in the centre of this conservatory which has a waterfall and all sorts of plants and flowers growing through it. At certain times in the day there is a ‘misting’ where they pump water vapour out of the structure. If you’re walking up it you could be fooled into thinking you are walking in the clouds.
The Gardens are a truly awe-inspiring place and you could potentially spend all day here if you wanted to. They’re a must see if you’re visiting and even if you go for an hour or two like me I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Thanks for reading.
