Gardens By The Bay

It opened a few months ago and I went for a visit last week. It is just too hot to visit the outdoor gardens in the day. I  practically 'melted' in the August sun if not for the umbrella. But in the evenings and early mornings, the gardens would not be too uncomfortable to walk through.

The feature I wanted to see was the Gardens' Flower Dome and Cloud Forest which are conservatories that are cooled to a comfortable temperature.

I'll tell you what I saw upclose and loved in the next post or check out the website.


  1. Ah, now then I am glad you posted about these gardens, they were designed and planted by a local company here in the uk frin Bath, they had a piece on our local tv about how they did them and how much they cost. When I saw them on the tv I thought of you. I am so glad you enjoyed them and thank you for sharing your lovely photos.

  2. I am really looking forward to seeing these gardens when we return to Singapore next year, especially as we wondered what the strange buildings were on our visit in June. It reminds me of the Eden project in England.
    Thanks for the insight

  3. This looks like it is a beautiful place. I'm looking forward to your next post.

  4. These are magnificent! What a great place!

  5. Wonderful photos and amazing buildings and displays! A unique and imaginative conservatory! I went to the website and thought I was looking at something from Star Trek on another planet! It also reminded me of the London Olympics opening ceremony, and I see from Margaret that this was designed in England! You have such interesting places to visit in Singapore! Thanks so much for again taking us with you on your 'tours about town'!
