Gardens By The Bay Singapore. Exploring Breath-taking Gardens in this Tips For Travellers Tour


Welcome I am Gary Bembridge of Tips For Travellers. Come join me on a great experience as we head to Gardens By The Bay in Singapore. It’s completely remarkable and unlike anything I’ve experienced before, and you’re going to be absolutely blown away by them. Spread over 250 acres of reclaimed land behind the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel, it’s a modern-day wonder. The largest of three gardens is the hundred thirty-eight acre Bay South garden – which is the focus of this video. It has three of the more famous aspects of garden. First are the Supertrees and the OCBC Skywalk. The Supertree structures are between 82 and a hundred sixty feet high and, as well as looking impressive, they are fundamental to the running of and for making the garden environmentally sound and sustainable. They harness solar energy to generate lighting and capture rainwater to use for watering and also to help run the conservatory cooling systems. The Skywalk is an elevated walkway 22 metres above the ground running between two of the largest Supertrees. From up there you get views across the gardens and the Singapore skyline. It can be reached by elevator or by stairs. I strongly recommend heading up on the Skywalk. The view and experience is quite remarkable. From here head past the flower clock to two columless and cooled glass conservatives: Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. My definite favorite is the Cloud Forest, which impressed me enormously. You enter by the towering 138-foot high mountain with a hundred and fifty foot waterfall. The conservatory has a 60,000 plants reflecting the flora and fauna from topical mountain regions around the world. After winding around of the lower level garden, full of ponds and various wooden artworks, you then travel up seven stories by elevator to the top. It’s in time to walk around and down the mountain, first on the Cloud and then Treetop walkways. As you wind your way around the platforms you view the plants at a different heights, also looking across the gardens like the Lost World and Secret garden and of course at the Singapore skyline outside. The whole time I was in here I was amazed at the ingenuity and cleverness of the attraction. It’s truly stunning. Next door is the Flower Dome, full of gorgeous plants. It’s a colorful feast for the eyes inside. It feels vast, and it was listed in the Guinness World Records in 2015 as the world’s largest glass conservatory. The gardens inside are the Australian, South American, South African, Californian and Mediterranean gardens with the Baobab and flower area. This hosts different exhibits across the year. Rainwater is collected from the surface of those huge conservatories which is used in the cooling system connected to the Supertrees. The Gardens By The Bay should be at the top of your things to do. It’s a beautiful and remarkable place. I hope you enjoyed that video and it’s given you some great travel inspiration or ideas.

  1. Such cool gardens. Almost like something out of the future. Will definitely have to visit if I make my way to Singapore.

  2. “Remarkable”?!… Just simply that… Magnificent, superb, amazing!!! These are, probably, more factually correct descriptive definitions!
