Knowing that Singapore heat is unbearable, the idea of enjoying the shade of a tree is quite appealing. Realisation to be the garden city, the sprawling 250 acre Gardens by the Bay is a public space with numerous themes of gardens and plant species. Situated in the heart of the city, the garden aimed at showcasing the city state’s tropical locale. In layman terms, Gardens by the Bay act as the “lung” of the city landscape to complement the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel. Proclaimed as the “horticultural heaven”, the 2 massive climate-controlled biomes called Cloud Forest & Flower Dome are not to be miss. Subsequently, the next big thing is the man-made trees called Supertrees. So how “super” are these Supertrees? In fact, the Supertrees are also a part of an energy efficient green space. As the title of this post suggest, I explored this amazing garden on a peaceful night.
Gardens by the Bay cost the government about S$1 billion to build on a reclaimed land. Just like Central Park in New York or Hyde Park in London, we got our own Gardens by the Bay houses over a quarter of a million rare plants.
