Baker Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture issued the following announcement on Feb. 7.
Arguably the most entertaining and educational place of interest in Singapore, the Gardens by the Bay at singapore is a national garden and horticultural habitat that everyone should visit. Divided into three distinct waterfront gardens, this attraction is typically on top of every traveler’s to-do list, offering a variety of events and sights for all, ultimately trying to bring green back into the city.
This nature park looms across 25 acres in central Singapore, next to the Marina Reservoir, allowing for a beautiful backdrop. But more gorgeous than the waterfront are the Garden’s distinct attractions. Seemingly the most popular one is the Flower Dome. This dome is the largest greenhouse in the world and its constant change of flowers and plants allow for the displays to recognize different plant life from multiple Mediterranean regions.
The Cloud Forest encourages visitors to educate themselves about plants that are currently disappearing. This attraction displays rare plants and vegetation from the Tropical Montane region and draws individuals in with breathtaking heights. You can even see the world’s tallest indoor waterfall here while walking through a tree-top walkway 2,000 meters above sea level.
Supertree Grove, another attraction, lets tourists see the gardens from a different perspective—under supertrees. These “trees” loom around sixteen stories tall and are embedded with sustainable energy to help run the Gardens. Consisting of reinforced concrete and steel, panels are used to build these “trees” so they contain a garden within themselves, housing over 162,900 plants, and at night, these “trees” produce a gorgeous light display.
The Sun Pavilion looks at desert-like environments. Displaying over 100 species, this exhibit of drylands and deserts is free to the public and open daily, giving tourists a chance to bask in the heat, viewing cacti and brush in a beautiful walk-way.
There are even more attractions to see: from the Heritage Garden that looks at the history of Singapore via plant life to the Far East Organization Children’s Garden that lets younger visitors enjoy interactive play areas and educational programs, the Gardens look to provide an attraction that can satisfy the interest of any tourist. They even offer an art exhibit, where more than forty sculptures, such as “The Pamela Hat” and “The Eagle has Landed” add something special to their respective garden display.
When planning a visit, be sure to check out the Garden’s calendar, as each year hosts new and exciting events. Annual floral displays and light shows are just the start of their summer activities, and their calendar continues to expand as construction continues within the gardens, opening new exhibits.
Overall, the Gardens by the Bay offer a unique perspective on going green. Their exhibits are breathtaking and eco-friendly, offering great photo-ops and educational programs for all visitors. The Gardens are even available to book a venue! Spanning far and wide, and varying in environment-types within each display, this is worth a full day trip, which is made accessible with the restaurants and resources on site. This is truly a must-see: The Gardens by the Bay offers breath-taking attractions that help you re-experience nature for the first time.
