Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay Review

Tags: Singapore

On a recent trip to Singapore, we decided to visit Gardens by the Bay. This wonderfully colourful, futuristic park is filled with incredible plants and structures and can be found in the bay area of Singapore.

The famous Supertree structures really do need to be seen to be believed. These steel-framed, manmade structures are between 25 and 50 meters tall and offer an impressive winding walkway over the gardens; making for a spectacular view. The Supertrees offer a shaded canopy during the day, but at night they light up into the most magical light display.

There are 12 Supertrees in the central grove and 6 or so others dotted around other parts of the garden. Amazingly, there are over 200 different species of plants and flowers that adorn the exterior of these Supertrees, which makes for a rather interesting view.

“Walking through the Supertrees with the magical lights and being close to so many natural species of plants really does feel extremely fairy-tale-esque.”

If you’re looking to cool off a bit, you can head to the Greenhouses which host many more fascinating plant species and wonderfully designed mini-gardens. The smaller shell-shaped building sees a very impressive mountain that is covered in plants and stands at 35 meters high. You can take a lift up to the top of the mountain where you ascend into the Cloud Forest, offering you a wonderful view. The park also plays host to the Flower Dome, where you will find an array of various plants from all over the world.

The light display is when Gardens by the Bay really comes alive. Walking through the Supertrees with the magical lights and being close to so many natural species of plants really does feel extremely fairy-tale-esque and I am so glad that we were able to experience this. If you’re looking for a truly special experience you can dine in the 50 meter Supertee which offers 360 degree views and a tree-top bar.

There truly is so much to see at Gardens by the Bay and we found the trip to be extremely worthwhile. We would thoroughly recommend the park to anyone who might be looking for things to do whilst in Singapore.
