5 Reasons to Check Out Gardens By The Bay, Singapore | Duende by Madam ZoZo

Stopping over in Singapore? Looking for a unique attraction to visit? Honestly, don’t bother with the Botanic Gardens, you’ve probably seen it all before. Gardens By The Bay is where it’s at! Whether you are a nature lover, admirer of art or more of an architecture enthusiast, Gardens By The Bay will satisfy them all. The green space spans 101 hectares close to the CBD and incorporates a number of different indoor and outdoor spaces. This is gardening for the 21st century! Here are my top 5 reasons you should visit Gardens By The Bay.

1. Three destinations in one

The glistening glass conservatories known as the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome replicate different climates and altitudes so you experience the flora of a humid tropical mountain range or the cool-dry Mediterranean. Add to that the four themed outdoor gardens that reflect the native equatorial environment of South East Asia and you have experienced three destinations in one.

2. Impressive architecture

The soaring faceted glass structures that envelope each conservatory, are not only attractive but engineered to allow visible sunlight to enter while rejecting much of the heat. The Flower Dome is also credited with being the world’s largest columnless greenhouse.

3. An outdoor art gallery

The Gardens are scattered with 40 sculptures from local and international artists.

4. The world’s tallest indoor waterfall

Within the misty Cloud Forest is a 35m tall mountain from which cascades the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.

5. Day to night transformation

Day to night transformation: I recommend visiting Gardens By The Bay in the late afternoon and staying until sundown when the Supertrees light up in an audio-visual spectacular. The manmade structures reminiscent of Africa’s Baobab trees are covered in a variety of plants and wired with solar cells that power “Garden Rhapsody,” a light show to a soundtrack incorporating epic movie themes songs from Jurassic Park to The Little Mermaid.

Put it on your bucket list!
