Destinations / Asia

Gardens by the Bay, home to some of the most beautiful attractions in Singapore, offers the most recognizable photo ops in the country. It’s no wonder this nearly 10.9-million-square-foot nature park attracts millions of visitors and family travelers each year. From the iconic Supertree Grove, the massive tree-like structures covered in flowers and foliage towering as high as 160 feet above the garden, to the OCBC Skyway, a suspended walkway that circles the gardens and gives you sprawling views of the park and the city skyline beyond, this space has it all.

 

Created as a national garden for local residents and international visitors, the gardens were designed to showcase Singapore’s natural beauty and demonstrate both garden artistry and the power of sustainable planning and design. The effect is an outdoor haven in the middle of downtown Marina Bay where visitors can enjoy a day exploring and enjoying nature.

 

Gardens by the Bay features multiple zones like the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and Floral Fantasy, each with their own unique habitat and appeal. In addition to beautiful flora and fauna, the gardens also showcase the traditional architecture of Southeast Asia alongside innovative modern structures that distinguish Singapore as a modern destination.

 

While each zone requires a separate ticket to enter, there is a combo ticket for the Flower Dome and the Supertree Observatory, home to the garden’s Supertree Grove. For all zones, Gardens by the Bay welcomes children under 3 years old with free admission, a savings that can give you extra spending money for the rest of your trip and make it easier for the whole family to spend a day wandering the different attractions of the gardens.
