Gardens by the Bay

During a visit to Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay Complex, one sees a stunning sculpture by British artist Marc Quinn. A giant white baby that seems to float over a grassy knoll. In reality, this marvellous feat of engineering is a 7-ton bronze. The Complex is well worth a visit, not least because of two giant crystal-like domes that provide isolated environments for high altitude rain-forest plant species and for dry land succulents including giant baobabs and

diverse cactus varieties. Over a hundred hectares in area, and comprising three gardens, includes the two glass encased conservatories, the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. A grove of Supertrees between 25 and 50 meters high are artful recreations of the role played by rain forest giants in harvesting rainwater, synthesizing sunlight and recycling nutrients.

Having spent a few hours wandering the two domes and the gardens over the weekend, I highly recommend reserving a day for a visit to the complex if you should happen to visit Singapore.

  1. I think what you said was actually very reasonable. But, think on this,
    suppose you were to write a awesome post title? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your website, but what if you added something that makes people desire more?

    I mean Gardens by the Bay « aviott is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about
    everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
