Gardens by the Bay, which is home to thousands of rare plants and flowers, is one of the most spectacular, environmentally-friendly parks in the world. This 250 acre, award-winning park located in Singapore consists of 3 beautiful waterfront gardens and 2 energy-efficient conservatories.
In the two conservatories, the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, visitors will have the opportunity to see many unique and interesting plants from around the world. The Flower Dome features cool-dry climate plants, such as succulents, and eucalyptus; the Cloud Forest showcases plants from cool, moist conditions found in the tropical mountain regions, like orchids, peacock ferns and camellias. Not only is the Flower Dome a beautifully designed building, it is also the world’s largest column-free glasshouse. One of the main attractions at the Gardens is the Cloud Mountain, which features a spectacular waterfall and hundreds of exotic plants.
Throughout the Gardens, visitors will notice gigantic tree-like structures in the park called “Supertrees.” The tallest one is over 15 stories tall! These structures are actually vertical gardens made of 200 varieties of unique and exotic plants like, ferns, vines and orchids. They can perform a range of duties, from collecting solar power to collecting rainwater for irrigation. Plus, at night, the Supertrees come alive with light and music.
As if that wasn’t amazing enough, at the Supertree Grove, you can go to the top of the trees and see a breathtaking, stunning view of Singapore coastline.

The Singaporean government created the outdoor recreation space in hopes of transforming the city into a greener and more beautiful place to live, work and play. The Gardens were designed with environmentally sustainable technologies and it was built on reclaimed land. The first phase of the Gardens opened in 2011 to the delight of many people.
The outdoor gardens are free, while there is a nominal fee to visit the conservatories. For more info, visit: www.gardensbythebay.com
