When we visited the “flower dome” in December, at that time Christmas theme was arranged inside the dome. We were amazed to see artificial snow, Christmas trees, Nutcracker dancing models and ballerinas.

    When I think of Singapore, I don’t think of gardens. I tend to think of the Pearl Jam song “Garden.” Your post does an excellent job of highlighting greenspace in a concrete jungle. “Green” is an REM cd!

    Wonderful place. It is amazing to see uch a small country maintaining so many spacious attractions. Especially like the idea of cloud forestgarden.

    This post is going to be very useful for me, since in two weeks I’ll be in Singapore for a 48 stopover and I was planning to see these gardens. I was wondering: do you know how to get there with public transportation? I mean by bus or metro 🙂 thank you in advance

    Those super trees are a beautiful idea, they sure have boosted Singapore’s image in map of tourism. Think of Singapre and these structures come to mind, earlier it was merlion!

    I’m going to Singapore on February and I can’t wait to see the gardens. It seems such a surreal place. Will look at your instagram pictures now 😀

  6. Brown Gal Trekker

    That’s a good place to spend a layover in Singapore. I didn’t hit this place when I was there. I was more focused on food 🙂

    Just today I was talking to a friend who told me that flights to Singapore are cheap from India. That had me searching for blogs on Singapore and I stumbled upon this blog. Your blog sure makes Singapore look like even more appealing. I hope to make it here soon. Always good to know an Indian perspective.

    Omg I’ve heard so much about this place! Reminds me of the Joshua Tree’s! My friend and I plan on visiting Singapore this year so we will definitely be making a stop! Have you ever been to the Dubai Miracle Garden? It’s pretty spectacular too!

  9. Jure

    Love how the cloud forest looks! On the other hand the flower garden is a bit cheesy for my taste 🙂

  10. Sudipto

    This looks such a beautiful place to visit. How much are the charges for entry? Are there places nearby to eat??

    Gardens by the bay has to be the most incredible garden I’ve ever seen. I can see why it is one of the most popular destinations in Singapore. I had never heard of it before but it makes me want to check out Singapore even more.

  12. Kristina

    It’s crazy to me that a garden is open until two in the morning! But I guess with so much to do, it’s good that it is. Your photos are absoloutely gorgeous, so bright and colorful!

    I have never taken a virtual tour through the interiors of Garden by the Bay. It’s so beautiful. I am not going to miss it when I make a trip to Singapore. You say it opens from 5.00 am till 2.00 am , do you mean 5.00pm till 2.00 am?

    • Travelpeppy

      All outdoor gardens are open from 5 AM till 2 AM while the ticketed ones have their own timings as mentioned. It is worth going there during trip to Singapore 🙂

    This place looks amazing! It does not even look real! Really beautiful photos also! It actually kind of makes me thing of Jurassic Park haha

  15. Carrie @ Two Small Potatoes

    Wow, I’ve seen lots of photos of this attraction on various Instagram accounts, but I didn’t realize how big it is or that it has so many different sections to it. My favorite is the Cloud Forest Garden. It looks like the Montaña Mágica Lodge in Chile!

    I really like a great walk in a garden and Gardens by the bay looks unbelievable, epic scenery and stunning views. Singapore really do things well. Great post even better pictures.

  17. Joe

    Wow, what a lovely and diverse garden! It’s almost like visiting several different beautiful ecozones in one place, with lots of lush plantlife. It’s great that it opens till 2am too – I bet it looks spectacular at night 🙂
