Gardens by the Bay

Holiday Travel Guide
Gardens by the Bay featuring a garden

A startling combination of mankind’s engineering and nature’s beauty make this attraction one of the city's best.

Sitting on the edge of the city and overlooking the mouth of the Singapore River, Gardens by the Bay is a triumphant achievement. Wander serene walking trails, explore impressive landscape architecture and marvel at the two garden-filled domes and huge manmade "Supertrees."

Head straight for the garden’s main attractions, the huge manufactured trees which tower up to 166 feet (50 meters) over the surrounding landscape. The trees are planted with hundreds of species of orchids, bromeliads, ferns and tropical flowers. If you are there at the end of the day, stay a little longer to witness the impressive "Garden Rhapsody" light show. Travel up one of the trees in an elevator and take a skywalk for an even more impressive perspective.

The other major attractions are the two domes, the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Enjoy a break from Singapore's humidity in the Flower Dome. Replicating the cool dry climates of the Mediterranean and other parts of the world, the dome is filled with impressive plants from around the globe. Wander among huge baobab trees and ancient olive plants, to cactus and the ever-changing Flower Field. Step into an entirely different world in the Cloud Forest. Although still cool, this dome replicates a moist tropical highland environment and houses the world's tallest indoor waterfall. Ascend into the heights and then wander down the winding walkways past carnivorous plants, yet more orchids and even a crystal-filled cavern.

Outside there are miles of trails that traverse the park, each leading to a unique pocket of garden. See the themed gardens that showcase rare tropical species and a vibrant array of flowers or join a guided tour to discover the hidden secrets of the park.

The Gardens by the Bay are located immediately adjacent to the famous Marina Bay Sands hotel. There are four onsite parking lots. Parking is free between midday and 2 p.m., but outside these times there is a fee. Gardens by the Bay can be reached by public transportation via bus or MRT, with the Bayfront station located just over the Dragonfly Bridge from the gardens. The Gardens by the Bay are open daily. There is a fee to take a skywalk or to enter the domes.
