Gardens by the Bay in Singapore
Gardens by the Bay is a horticulture-themed oasis in the heart of Singapore.
The lush garden spans 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land and features three waterfront gardens: Bay Central, Bay East, and Bay South.
The Bay South garden, the largest of the three gardens at 130 acres, is where you’ll find the iconic solar-powered supertrees.
Supertrees dominate the Garden’s landscape with heights that range between 25 meters and 50 meters.
Suspended from the supertrees is the OCBC Skyway, a 128 meter long elevated walkway.
At a height of 22 meters, the walkway offers a panoramic aerial view of the Gardens:
And some of Singapore’s famous sights.
The supertrees generate solar power, act as air venting ducts for nearby conservatories, and collect rainwater.
At night, Gardens by the Bay and the Marina Bay Skyline come alive with a light and music show called the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.
You can catch this impressive show nightly at 7:45pm and 8:45pm.
Gardens by the Bay is more than just supertrees.
During your visit, take time to explore the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, and stroll through Dragonfly and Kingfisher Lakes.
The park also showcases more than 40 sculptures from around the world including Marc Quinn’s Planet, a giant sculpture of a sleeping baby.
