Gardens By The Bay
Singapore is known for its modern and
futuristic designs, and this can be seen in its buildings, parks, islands, etc.
The Gardens by the Bay is a major example of this. This garden is spread in an
area of 101 hectares and has three unique gardens which are Bay South, Bay East
and Bay Central. The unique arrangements of the plants and flowers as well the
climate control in each of these gardens makes this garden truly amazing.
South: This is the largest of the three gardens
and also the finest when it comes to garden artistry and horticulture. This
garden has two conservatories which are bio-controlled. One is the Flower Dome
that replicated the cool-dry climate of the Mediterranean region and the other
is the Cloud Forest which maintains cool moist condition which is seen at an
altitude of 1000-3000 meters.
East: The Bay East offers you a serene garden
with beautifully landscaped gardens and a long waterfront promenade which
stretches up to two kilometres.
Central: This is a place that connects both the
Bay East and the Bay South Gardens.
Apart from the beautiful
blooms in these gardens, there are several unique things about the Gardens by
the Bay. The Supertree Grove is the place where you would find 15 huge manmade
eco-friendly trees which help in solar energy harvesting through their
photovoltaic cells. Moreover, two 42 meters high Supertrees are lined together
through a 128 meter aerial walkway at a height of 20 meters. You can take a
walk on this walkway and get a gorgeous aerial view of this garden. Other than these,
the Kingfisher Lakes and Dragonfly are some other major attractions of this
