What
Gardens by the Bay is a modern green space that occupies 101 hectares in central Singapore.

This innovative tourist heaven was born from an international design competition to create an urban garden in the city center. The project was aimed to seal Singapore’s title as a “City in a Garden”.

The park is divided into three major sections: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden.

Since its opening in 2012, Gardens by the Bay has been visited by more than 20 million visitors.

Why
Gardens by the Bay is a design achievement that should not be missed by anybody who sets foot in Singapore.

The garden’s advanced concept perfectly combines nature and modern technology, creating an awe-inspiring futuristic wonderland.

Gape in wide-eyed wonder at every dome and garden feature. Enjoy the free access to the sky walk and see the gardens from above!

At Gardens by the Bay, you could easily forget the time, spend the whole day, and still not want to leave at closing time.

Gardens by the Bay highlights
The Supertrees are the first things you notice when approaching Gardens by the Bay. These vertical gardens serve as hosts to a variety of plants like ferns, vines, and orchids. Walk along the elevated walkway that winds between the Supertrees and enjoy an aerial view of the garden. Don’t miss the amazing light and sound show of the Garden Rhapsody!

Get lost in the Cloud Forest! Replicate the experience of being on top of a mountain and make your way down amid a lush green forest with a jaw-dropping waterfall. Wait for the mist spray before going down for that feeling of being above the clouds in this tropical heaven!

Go Mediterranean at the Flower Dome! This giant greenhouse was named as the Largest Glass Greenhouse in the World by the Guinness World Records in 2015. The dome’s cool-dry climate gives it a year-round spring condition that is suitable for the housed plants. Explore the seven sectors of the Flower Dome and be transported to the gardens of Spain, Italy, South America, South Africa, Australia, and other semi-arid tropical regions.
