Gardens by the Bay#1 in Best Things To Do in Singapore
If you're looking for a taste of nature without the trek, Gardens by the Bay is your urban jungle. The attraction is conveniently based in Marina Bay and features a wide of variety of enticing things to do and see that seamlessly mix Mother Nature with the metropolis. The Supertree Grove, the most recognized landmark of the park, features 18 "supertrees" that support the OCBC Skyway, a 419-foot-long aerial walkway that affords views of both the surrounding gardens, as well as Marina Bay.
In the nearby seashell-shaped facilities, visitors will find the highly lauded Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. The Flower Dome is the largest greenhouse in the world and showcases numerous types of plants and flowers grouped by country. Expect to find tulips next to replicas of Dutch architecture and Birds of Paradise flowers in the South African Garden. The Cloud Forest – a crowd favorite – features a 114-foot-tall mini mountain that plays host to the world's tallest indoor waterfall, which visitors can observe via the aerial Cloud Walk or Tree Top Walk. And that's just a few of the activities available on-site.
Visitors say this park does not disappoint, but keep in mind that attractions have separate admission fees. It's free to walk around the outdoor gardens, including the Far East Organization Children's Garden, but to access the OCBC Skyway in the Supertree Grove and the conservatories, which include the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest there are additional fees. To get to Gardens by the Bay, get off at the Bayfront MRT Station. The park is open from 5 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily, but hours vary for the different attractions within.
