Fun Day Out at the Gardens by the Bay
Oct 2020 • Couples
I like how the Gardens by the Bay (GBB) always organizes themed events to draw visitors to revisit the place. I am not a nature fan but I'm always enticed to visit the Gardens a few times every year for events like the tulip fair in April/May, the Mid Autumn lantern display in September/October and the outdoor Christmas market in November/December.

I was lucky during my weekend ramble in the GBB as there were three events going on as the same time! There is the 'Glass in Bloom' event spanning several months, where colourful Dale Chihuly glass sculptures of every shape, shade, and size were on display around the Gardens, outdoors on the manicured lawns where admission is free as well as inside the airconditioned Flower Dome where entry is ticketed. (See photos.)

Then there are big, handcrafted figures of bunnies, deers,children, boats etc set up at the Supertree Grove, on the lawns and meadow and around the Dragonfly Lake, which I think will be beautiful at night when the whimsical lanterns are lit up for the month long Mid Autumn Festival celebrations (centered around its actual date Sept 21st, 2021). As I visited GBB in the day, I missed seeing the lanterns all lit up after sunset. I would recommend visiting in the late afternoon or early evening so one can enjoy the GBB sights in both daylight and after dark.

I managed to spy from a distance a larger than life Miffy who was making her rounds at the Flower Dome on Sunday; she and her chaperone were mobbed by excited kids and their parents who wanted to take wefies. Miffy's presence was part of the GBB's Children Day's Festival. Around the Supertree Grove were several big, colourful rubber animals - a centipede, a teddy bear, etc. Pre-covid, children will be climbing up and bouncing on these big rubber animals, but due to covid and distancing rues, they can only gawk and snap photos. I guess I was lucky last weekend to be part of a triple bill at the Gardens.

Fantastic garden, bad restaurant
Oct 2021 • Family
Fantastic place to relax and enjoy nature during the pandemic

Only marred by bad service at hortus, the restaurant taking over the space where pollen used to be

Beautiful and peaceful. Smooth flowing and plenty of detail to get lost in. Or if you want a brisk walk with scenery it is just as well suited

a calming, gorgeous place
Sep 2021 • Friends
Great place. Do visit both the free outdoor gardens and the paid indoor exhibits!

The paid air-conditioned exhibits are awesome, we have been going for years.

Recently there was good weather so we ventured into the outdoor gardens: amazed at the lovely space and variety of foliage cultivated. (And for free! A must-see)

Great place to visit to beat the hit afternoon sun
Sep 2021 • Family
Great place to go to beat the heat in the afternoon; with young children or with those young at heart.
The flower dome and cloud forest have a great variety of greenery to appreciate and the walk is very enjoyable. You might want to bring a windbreaker as it may get chilly but I guess it’s not necessary for those who love the aircon.

Great for kids!

I could use my SingaporeDiscover vouchers for the visit, so I brought my family there for the Hello Kitty Sakura display in April. The flower displays were stunning my daughter loved running around them and taking photos. Finding food was not an issue at all. There is a air-conditioned cafeteria that sold 5-6 different ethnic food. (e.g. Thai, Chinese. Vietnamese etc).

Enjoy paradise at garden by the bay
Aug 2021 • Friends
The chihuly art in bloom outdoor and indoor exhibits and the installation in the two conservatories are truly magical. They should be extended beyond October. Try not to miss this delightful experience. If you plan to walk through this enjoyable outdoor art in nature exhibit , do so in the morning to avoid the heat or in the evening after 6 pm to see the full glory of its lighting effects. We are seniors and had the privilege of a private buggy service.The guided tour was well worth it because both Michael Lee and Natalie Hong from hustle and bustle, made the trip enlightening and entertaining. We are also impressed by Mr Lee Kok Fatt’s professional and personable service. He went the extra mile to ensure we have a wonderful day at the garden by the bay. We appreciate his thoughtfulness - A model for management staff in the hospitality business.
The garden by the bay is an awesome place to explore the beauty of nature - feast your eyes this season.

Interesting But Not Spectacular
Oct 2020
These Gardens are more of marvel of human architecture than nature. While they are an okay afternoon activity, I would recommend the National Gardens and in particular the National Orchid Garden. (This review is from October 2018, and was somehow not completed. I couldn't select 2018 from the dropdown menu whe submitting the review. )

It was indoor gardens. I’m not a Garden expert, I went for a new experience and it was pretty, light and airy. But it wasn’t much more than that if you can’t tell the difference between a hydrangea and a posey.
