Gardens by the Bay

Singapore - Gardens by the Bay brings to life NParks' vision of creating a City in a Garden. The Gardens captures the essence of Singapore as the premier tropical Garden City with the perfect environment in which to live and work - making Singapore a leading global city of the 21st century. The 101-hectare Gardens by the Bay include two greenhouses and 220,000 plants from almost every continent.

At the heart of the gardens are the ‘Supertrees’, a fusion of nature, art and technology. They are both spectacular vertical tropical gardens dripping with ferns, orchids and climbers, and the environmental engines for the gardens, equipped with photovoltaics, solar thermal collectors, rainwater harvesting devices and venting ducts. The Supertrees support a 135m length aerial walkway, suspended 21.5m from the ground; the tallest Supertree of 50m in height will also house a bar at the top.

Flower Dome

Spectacular and innovative in design, it is one of the icons of Bay South Garden. The Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean regions like South Africa, California and parts of Spain and Italy. Home to a collection of plants from deserts all over the world, it showcases the adaptations of plants to arid environments.
