Day 2386 - Family things to do in Singapore - Gardens by the Bay

Did you know that Singapore is 50% green?

The Super Trees at Gardens by the Bay

Singapore prides itself in being at least half green with the proof being that you can see its greenery from out of space.

That means they put a lot of work into their gardens and parks, including building greenery into their architecture so that key high rises and even bridges are draped in flora.



One great spot to see the greenery is the Gardens by the Bay.  Whether you choose to meander around the free pathways or go the whole hog and buy tickets to the indoor gardens and upper walkways, the Gardens by the Bay experience is a must-see when visiting Singapore.

Situated by the water up behind the Marina Bay Sands hotel, the tall man made tree towers can be seen from all over the city.

This nature park spans 101 hectares of reclaimed land and sits adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. It is made up of three waterfront gardens including Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central.

There is so much to see including the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and OCBC Skyway.  Not to mention Supertree Grove, lakes, a children's garden and sculptures.




To see it all you'll need a good half day.  But it's definitely worth it.

It's a great place for all ages.

  2. Love those tree towers! I also love how they are greening their city. Our small country town is doing the same, with loads more plantings of street trees and maintaining our many parks.
