Some Background Info
Set amidst stunning waterfront views, Gardens by the Bay spans more than 101 hectares of reclaimed land. A premier visitor attraction that’s within easy reach of hotels near Clarke Quay, this site features distinctive flora that has been cultivated in diverse habitats and climatic conditions.
One of the most spectacular highlights here are the stunning Supertrees which look like something out of a science fiction movie! Ranging from 25 to 50 metres in height, these structures that are even more stunning when lit up at night, are actually home to an array of flora including orchids and bromeliads. Two of the Supertrees are connected by an aerial walkway which offers breathtaking views of the gardens.
Another key attraction is the misty Cloud Forest with its amazing views, while Floral Fantasy features colourful garden landscapes and has a 4D ride too. The Dragonfly and Kingfisher Lakes and the Far East Organisation Children’s Garden with its water play areas are a few of the other highlights here.
