Exceptional Trio of Waterfront Gardens

We are truly fortunate to be living in an enviable “City in a Garden.” In fact our country hasn’t failed in living up to its ideal of sustaining a beautiful balance between modern lifestyle and exceptional biodiversity. As such we are abundant with parks, gardens and nature reserves, which leave us utterly in awe of their majestic beauty.


And as we are talking about majestic greeneries, the spotlight for now will be focused on a nature park consisting of three waterfront gardens sitting on a total area of 101 hectares of reclaimed land at the heart of the city. This, ladies and gentlemen, is no other than Gardens by the Bay.

Gardens by the Bay, as already mentioned, is made up of three gardens: Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central. Bay South is the largest of the three while Bay Central acts as the link between the two remaining gardens.

This 101-hectare grand nature park boasts many attractions, which surely won’t disappoint you. For starters, they offer you breathtaking mountaintop views at Cloud Forest. This unique conservatory features a one of a kind 35-metre tall man-made mountain, which is covered with different kinds of flora ranging from bewitching orchids, vibrant bromeliads to carnivorous pitcher plants. To complete a perfect replica of a tropical mountain forest, Cloud Forest also showcases a man-made waterfall, which is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.


From one conservatory to the next, Gardens by the Bay proudly brings you the Flower Dome. As you enter this fascinating conservatory you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into another country for you will be surrounded by natural sceneries closely resembling that of regions with cool-dry climate such as the Mediterranean, Australia, South America and South Africa. Other than the display of plants that proliferate in arid environments, you’ll also witness different seasons and themes being reflected in the changing displays of the Flower Field.

For a superb marriage between nature and technology, nothing can compete with the Supertree Grove. This grove is home to unique tree-like structures, which scale up to 16 storeys in height and are engineered to perform environmental functions such as harvesting solar energy. More than 162,900 plants clad these Supertrees and every night you’ll see these trees at their fullest grandeur as they light up and provide a wonderful display of changing colours.
