General info: 

Singapore government has a plan to transform the city from a ‘Garden City’ to a ‘City in a Garden’. The 1st step in that process was the construction of the Gardens by the Bay. This huge area is located on the waterfront giving a great view from the gardens and perfect conditions for the plants.

Every part of the Gardens by the Bay is truly amazing. The buildings in the park are peculiar, designed by world famous architects and have even been compared with the Sydney Opera. They are mostly made out of glass, allowing the plans inside to get the essential sunlight.

Supertrees Grove is a part of the Gardens by the Bay that is really hard to describe. Words aren’t sufficient to explain how impressive these structures are. Supertrees are tree-like structures that are home to dozens of different species of vines, ferns, and orchids. But they aren’t just that. These 50-meters high buildings also serve as observation decks and solar energy panes that enable them to shine all over the garden.

Getting there: 

As the names suggests, the Gardens by the Bay area is on the waterfront, near the Singapore Marina. The bus station of the same name is right in front of the main entrance.


The entrance depends on the visitor’s age. Children and senior citizens need to pay around 4.5 Euros, while the rest ones pay 11.50 Euros.
