Singapore is a futuristic city like the buildings, city structure and skyline would prove. One of the finest examples of this is Singapore's Gardens by the Bay, a beautiful park that would mesmerize you with its greenery. Amongst the concrete buildings and spaces of Singapore, the Gardens by the Bay is a beautiful solace for those who love nature.
Spread around an area of 101 hectares, the park is divided into three zones or gardens which contain around 250,000 rare flowers and plants in totality. The Bay South is a tropical garden and displays the best gardening and horticulture artistry. It also has two bio-controlled conservatories which are the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. The Cloud Forest mimics the environment of a mountainous region which lies at the altitude of 1000-3000 meters. On the other hand, the Flower Dome provides the flowers and environment of the Mediterranean region.
While the Bay South is famous for its magnificence, Bay East is known for its serenity. The uniquely designed garden and the long water promenade which stretches in an area of 2 km would not fail to impress you. Then there is the Bay Central which is a connection between Bay South and Bay East.
Aside from these three gardens, the Supertree Grove is worth your time. Here, you would find 15 huge man-made trees which are also eco-friendly. These trees help in solar energy harvesting through their photovoltaic cells. There is also a walkway between two 42 meters high Supertrees. Perched at the height of 20 meters, this walkway is 128 meters long and will give you an awesome view of the entire garden. Some of the other attractions of this park are the Kingfisher Lakes and Dragonfly.
The Gardens By the Bay is such a huge place and an impressive engineering marvel that a vacation in Singapore would be incomplete without visiting it. Probably, it has contributed in Singapore earning the epithet of the greenest city in Asia. The Gardens just mesmerizes visitors and makes them feel blessed. Words cannot describe the architectural brilliance that went into its making. Visiting the Flower Dome was like offering a floral treat to the eyes. No can see such a massive collection of flowers and plants at one place in his or her entire life. The Cloud Forest is another amazing structure that offers unique experience. Never anywhere in the world one can see an indoor waterfall. I am glad that I didn't miss these wonderful sites.
Walking through the Cloud Forest and Forest Dome was the best experience of our lives. We spent memorable time and came out with fabulous experience. Truly, a not-to-miss place while in Singapore.
