“Simply Gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Singapore has done it again by creating an oasis on this tropic island. Get there in the late afternoon to avoid the scorching heat, and hang around till about 7.30pm for the light show. A great way to spend an evening before venturing over to Marina Bay Sands for dinner options.

“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

If you want to take pictures that seem empty of people, go in the early morning. Both the buildings and the contents are attractive. It's not only beautiful for the eyes, as there are many things to learn about flora and more.

“A great place to spend a few hours ( and cool off)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

2 very sizeable domes of near 150 feet high providing a massive variety of trees/ plants/ shrubs and cacti plus a very tall waterfall. With a temperature of around 60 degrees it provides some welcome relief from the heat and humidity of the outdoor climate. Good food available. Use Bayfront as nearest station and 5 minute walk to Marina Bay Sands shopping Mall ( itself excellent) and casino ( free entry for non Singaporeans with passport ID).

“Gardens by the Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We arrived about 1pm and saw The Cloud Forest which was amazing. Then watched the light and sound show, beautiful. Visited the Flower Dome, unfortunately by this time it was dark and it is only lit with rather small spotlights and I feel not worth seeing, would love to visit it in daylight to obtain full impact. Much to see here and I consider it very good value.

“Extraordinary Garden at the Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We took the Circle line (yellow line) going here, exit at Promenade MRT (CC4) then change to the Platform B, then exit at Bayfront. There are directions at the MRT exit going to the gardens by the Bay. There is available elevator upon exit. There is also shuttle available that costs S$2 that will take you to the entrance. But if you don't mind walking, it's not also that far to walk. Besides you'll enjoy the gardens more when you walk.

You can avail. just one conservatory (Flower Dome or Cloud Dome) or both (S$28). They can be bought separately. But the Treegrove is sold at S$ 5

I love the Flower dome. I truly appreciate different beautiful species of flowers (esp. tulips). I like how it was built like a natural rainforest but gardens are inspired by culture.

I also like the "free" photo booth they provided along the tulips.

I also like the whole area because it is air-conditioned and there are a lot of areas where you can sit or rest for awhile.
