Gardens by the Bay is built as a continuation of the goverment’s commitment to transform Singapore into a “Garden City” with lush greenery and outdoor spaces for the people. The total area of the park is 250 acres by the Marina in central Singapore. The most visited parts of the park are the two Conservatories, Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, and the Supertrees Grove. The architecture of these buildings aims at minimizing the environmental impact with a rainwater collection system from the surface of the greenhouses that is then sent to be circulated in the cooling system at the Supertrees where hot air is vented.
We started out visit with lunch at the IndoChine atop the tallest Supertree. They are open all day so do go up even just for a coffee.
