Singapore was my first destination since I started to travel abroad. And I always have a good impression of this country. I heard so many times about the cleanliness and natural environment in Singapore. Until I got there, I realized that they did not overtalk about it. Even in a modern country like that, they still can complex nature so well while the acreage of Singapore is not too big. That's why you will always feel the fresh air here because so many parks and nature reserves here.
This time, I will take you to the Gardens by the Bay with me. Although the architect and culture of Singapore are so colorful and meaningful, I will save it for next time. Gardens by the Bay is one of the famous architects in Singapore, their images have been seen as one of the iconic of Singapore. If you get here, you should not miss the OCBC Skyway, the Cloud Forest, or the Flower Dome at Gardens By The Bay, in addition to the Supertree Grove. Let's go with me to explore the Gardens By The Bay just in a few minutes.
Gardens by the Bays including Bay East, Bay Central and Bay South. Where Bay South is famous for the range of Supertree Grove which is high from 25- 50 meters and not only for decoration but also store the solar energy to run the Gardens by the Bay.
You can also try to walk on the OCBC Skyway to see Singapore from here.
This is the Supertree Grove at night which attracted many visitors here. And all the lights are lighted up by the solar energy which is self-synthesized in the day.
The two greenhouses are located on Marina's water complex and include the flower dome and cloud forest. The greenhouses lie on about 1 ha of land. The architect Eyre Wilkinson designed this structure with the intention of creating a place for displaying and introducing forms of energy and weather.
Among the many unique features of this greenhouse is its lack of support from giant concrete pillars, as well as its connection with a cooling system that relies on stored rainwater. It is part of the supertree system.
There are several rare plants thriving in this greenhouse, and the decoration is based on distinct "concept" themes of the year including spring, summer, fall, Halloween, and Christmas. As a result, you'll never get bored visiting Gardens By The Bay, since every time you visit you have the chance to see a colorful, new, and completely different Gardens By The Bay.
I came here on Christmas, everywhere are decorated in Christmas style and you can feel the X-mas atmosphere in every corner here.
The Flower Dome is adjacent to Cloud Forest - a popular attraction for tourists who love flowers and plants. There are thousands of plant species found in temperate countries, which come from everywhere from the Mediterranean to South Africa, and they can withstand temperatures as low as 23 degrees Celsius or less. In addition, temperate countries produce hundreds of beautiful species of flowers. The Flower Dome is also home to common species, such as palm trees, trees from the South American Amazon jungle, trees from the Amazon, trees from Madagascar, and even the famous Baobab tree in Africa.
You can see many species of vegetation from other continents which you might haven't seen before.
This is a Cloud forest, which a walkway wraps around an artificial waterfall that stretches up to 7 floors high in the greenhouse's greenhouse area.
Increasing your height will reveal that Cloud Forest is not a forest in the clouds, but a forest atop each layer of clouds. In fact, at different altitudes, the vegetation also differs. Whether you are on Cloud Walk or Treetop Walk, the view changes depending on where you are in the forest, and the higher you go in Cloud Forest.
