Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

One of my favourite parts of Singapore is the totally nuts Gardens of the Bay, where trees of pink provide shade and artistic statues sit alongside a fish aquarium.

It’s got to be seen to be believed.

You’ll find it across the river from the Singapore Flyer,

and behind the unbelievable Marina Bay Sands which towers over the park like an alien aircraft. It makes a dramatic backdrop to the greenery of the lush tropical planting.

Trees with giant leaves are planted in mini islands along the narrow canals.

We get our first glimpse of the iconic Supertree Grove. Weird but wonderful collection of tree like structures that have a matrix of climbing plants pushing to reach the canopies.

They are bigger than you think. Everything reaches for the sky in the Marina Bay area. They are intriguing and beautiful.

At night they are shown off with a sound and light display.

Dragonfly Lake skirts the west side and makes for a peaceful stroll.

Some of the plants we had never seen before. This ones a bit defensive…

A small aquarium, with windows positioned in the shade, made for a some relief from the intense heat. Even in this park with plants and water features everywhere we needed to duck into the gift shops just to enjoy the air conditioning.

This was my favourite place in the park. So beautiful. Make sure you look out for the lush Water Lily Pond.

There is a picturesque boulder just waiting for you to perch on.

The Flower Dome and Cloud forest are gardens found inside huge glass houses that look like shells. We were running out of time so missed out, but take a look by following the links.

There are lots of little gardens dotted around, including Chinese and Indian gardens.

This big guy will be pleased to see you.

Heading back through the bamboos getting a little lost, we find ourselves back at the SuperTree Grove.

I felt as impressed by them the second time, they are like nothing I’ve seen anywhere else. Singapore is like that, it can blow your mind!

The OCBC Skywalk looks great fun. I think even I might handle this height at 22 metres. It’s high but compared to everything else around here it looks a doddle!

We’ve loved this park and sadly run out of time to explore more, you could easily spend half a day here.

We crossed the Dragon Fly Bridge back towards the Marina Bay Sands hotel off on more adventures (and a cold cocktail with our lunch!).

Gardens of the Bay has been brilliant. We’ve already explored Singapore Marina and we can’t wait to see more. Singapore is wonderful and we are all smitten.
