So I was in Singapore for my buddy’s wedding. It was a long weekend, and unlike my past visits to Singapore, I decided to take it easy, slow down… and smell the flowers, literally. One hot afternoon (it’s always hot in Singapore!) I found myself at Gardens By The Bay.
They say no visit to Singapore is complete without taking a stroll round this garden and take in the almost surreal views. These trees were a sight to behold, like some twisted experiment to blend technology and nature into a beautiful sculpture.
There’s more than a touch of Avatar (the movie) about it. I was mesmerised through and through. The view just gets better when it lights up at night.
I don’t want to sound like a travel brochure; you can easily get information like opening times, directions, facilities and everything else about Gardens By The Bay from their official website. But you can take my word for it – it is not something you want to miss when you visit this city state.
Stay for the light show. I didn’t as time was running out, but I was told it is a spectacle only Singapore can pull off, and I believe it. Afterall, there must be some solid reasons why it was crowned the World Building Of The Year 2012.
See all my photos of Garden By The Bay.
