Inside Singapore: Gardens by the Bay

Gardens of the Bay is one of my favourite parks in Singapore. The place is a fantastic combination of futuristic landscapes, beautiful nature, tall tress, bright flowers, pretty ponds, and many other objects of interest, such as the Flower Dome, the Supertree Grove, and the Cloud Forest, to name a few .

Despite it being in the heart of the city and, therefore, quite touristic, there is always a sport where you can find privacy.

Here you really feel that life is full colours (both literally and figuratively). This is the place that you want to visit over and over again.

You can take a pleasant stroll between the pond and the wall of green. Singapore Flyer can be seen ahead.

Silver Garden is an absolutely fantastic place to be. Surprisingly, only a few people can be found there.

Every night in the Supertree Grove there is a light and music show called the Garden Rhapsody. It is out of this world. The lights and songs match really well. When you watch and listen to the show, you feel completely “here and now”. The show is played twice (7.45 pm and 8.45 pm) for 15 minutes and must not be missed.

Gardens by the Bay are beautiful during and part of the day, and especially at night.

You can ride crocodiles here too.

Gardens by the Bay is a perfect place to feel that life is a gift not to be wasted.

Being alive is one of the greatest wonders in the world.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute.
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling
