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.
