One word to describe this place : MAGNIFICENT!!
You wanna find a garden in a city? Or a city in a garden? Whatever you choose, Garden by the Bay is your perfect choice. It is a strategy made by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a “Garden City” to “City in the Garden”.
The park is extremely popular and I think it can be the icon of Singapore already. The park itself has three gardens : Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central. The largest is the Bay South where you can find the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, and the Supertree Grove.
When I went there, the place is seriously crowded. Thankfully I have bought my admission tickets before so I didn’t have to join the super long Q to get the tickets.
As you enter the flower dome, you can spot very many amazing views. If you’re a photo freak, this is one of the place that is MUST VISIT! You can find some different gardens inside the flower dome. Then after you have explored all the dome, you can continue to visit the Cloud Forest. Both the flower dome and cloud forest have air cond as they’re indoor gardens. Once you get inside the cloud forest, you can see the waterfall and you will feel like you’re in different world.
Then there’s the Supertree Grove. Make sure you reach there by 7.45 p.m or 8.45 p.m as it will be a music show called the OCBC Garden Rhapsody and you can see the Supertree come alive with the lights. You can just sit there, watching the show and snap lots of pictures or just enjoy the spectacular view.
This place is seriously amazing. I cannot stop “wow-ing” since I entered the place till I get out. If there’s just one place I can recommend in Singapore, Gardens by the bay will be the one.
Try to not come at daytime because it will be sunny and hot. The perfect time for you to come is around 5 p.m so you will have the time to explore the whole gardens and by 8.45 p.m you can enjoy the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.
Beware if you come at peak season because there will be a super long Q at the ticket counter. I suggest you to buy the entry ticket first so you can save your time. Don’t know how you get the ticket? You can email me through firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help you. You will get the cheaper price of course 😉
So, what do you think about this place? Have you been here before?
