Owner description: An integral part of Singapore's "City in a Garden" vision, Gardens by the Bay spans a total of 101 hectares of prime land at the heart of Singapore's new downtown - Marina Bay. Comprising three waterfront gardens - Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central - Gardens by the Bay will be a showcase of horticulture and garden artistry that will bring the world of plants to Singapore and present Singapore to the World.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The botanical gardens are spectacular! We have visited the Botanical Domes in Milwaukee and this is 10X more of everything. It's done very well, easy to walk around and see everything.

“Brilliant exhibition of Tropical Plants”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

A brilliant day out and thoroughly enjoyable. The internal rainforest was cool and misty and showed off some amazing plantlife. The orchids were stunning. Missed the Skywalk outside but apparently is also amazing. The stroll around the park is peaceful and relaxing while the kids can run and play.

The bird sounds and soothing music in the Rainforest exhibit was a bit kitcch but I guess you can't have real birds or insects in there - they'll mess up everything. Apparently the birds get confused - they see all the greenery but can't get in because of the glass dome covering everything.

Tip - find a Singaporean citizen friend to buy your entrance ticket - you'll save a chunk of change which you can spend on the excellent coffee at the restaurant there.

The Gardens by the Bay is an excellent venue - in particular the Cloud Garden. It is a must to see. Tropical and full of exotic flowers you slowly climb the metal walkway until you are literally up above the entire Garden and in the clouds. The views within and outside from here are something special.

We really enjoyed our time there, a lot of walk, not much shade when you are walking to the restaurants etc so don't forget to bring your hat and drinks on a hot day.

“Back to Nature”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Amidst the Singapore skyscrappers, there's Gardens by the Bay, located right opposite Marina Bay Sands. It is a huge area filled with greenery, perfect for that outdoor picnic/run/date/etc.

The place is easily accessible via MRT (Marina Bay), or bus.

Not much of a shade, so remember to apply sun screen if you are planning to spend the day there. Nevertheless, there is a buggy/guided tour service, hence one need not walk too much. There is a restaurant above one of the tree-like sculpted towers that will give you quite a magnificent view of Singapore at night.
