…where wonder blooms!
A big must, while you are in Singapore, is visiting Gardens by the Bay. Truly a masterpiece that presents the plant kingdom in a whole new way! It is made of three distinctive gardens – Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central (and I totally Googled it up, because I wanted to give you some more information 😀 ). However, Bay South is the largest of the three, and it has the main attractions: Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, Supertree Grove, OCBC Skywalk, the beautiful sculptures… you name it!
We spent the rest of our remaining time in Singapore in the Gardens and visited what seemed most interesting for us. Our exploring started at Cloud Forest, a refreshing world, veiled in mist! We were so happy with our decision, because temperature outside was around 35°C and very humid, and inside the dome it was still humid :D, but much cooler. So to explain it simply – this place is a replica of a cloud forest that grows in the mountains with a unique biodiversity of the plant life.
See that mist? This is what I am talking about – very refreshing, and gives a feeling of a true forest!
Later on we went to see the giant trees, aka the Supertree Grove. They look amazing by daytime, but even more mesmerising when night falls. There is a light and sound show in the evening, but we missed it because we had to catch our flight to Australia that same day.
However, we were walking around, enjoying the views as the sun was just about to set and we took a stroll on the Skyway among the trees – with beautiful panoramic views of the gardens.
One of the sculptures in the park – PLANET – that caught my attention. It is a hefty seven tons, but it looks as if it is floating in the air.
So this sums up our short but wonderful stay in Singapore. Have you ever visited this place? If yes, what did you like the most?
