Bay Gardens in Singapore - the main attraction

Marina Bay Bay has stunning views.the man-made gardens Gardens By The Bay (Gardens By The Bay), as well as Lake Dragonfly. This is the same, known to many, natural park, in which there are artificial trees like in the movie "Avatar". In my opinion, this place is the most exciting, and therefore I consider it must see if you are visiting Singapore.

Gardens by the Bay

The park covers 101 hectares of land. Consists of three gardens along the embankment: Bay South Garden, East Bay Garden and Bay Central Garden. The largest of the gardens of Bay South Garden is 54 hectares. You can’t get lost, there are signs with signs everywhere, so you can easily navigate. On the territory of a huge variety of sculptures, one of which is a sculpture of a sleeping boy. Its size is 10 meters and its weight is 7 tons. It seems that the baby hovers above the ground, but in fact it rests on special, almost imperceptible supports. This is the work of sculptor Mark Quinn, who portrayed his child.

Also on site is a free children's room.aqua zone with different fountains. In the aqua-zone there is a dressing room, shower, toilet. For a child, this will be a great opportunity to play and at the same time take a break from the heat, so I recommend taking a towel and a swimsuit / bathing suit for a walk in the garden.

Gardens are ecological power stations. They planted more than 160 thousand plants. There is a garden of cacti and lakes with beautiful large lotuses. On the territory of the garden, along the waterfront, built a greenhouse complex. The complex consists of two greenhouses: Flower dome and Cloud forest.

And here are the fabulous trees in the movie "Avatar". And every day, in the evenings, the lights turn on and an amazing light-music show begins.

Flower Dome (Flower Dome)

This greenhouse occupies 1.2 hectares and consists of 7garden areas. Inside created its own ecosystem. The temperature is maintained at about 23-25 ​​° C. It has a mild and dry climate and plants grow in the Mediterranean region and other semi-arid tropical regions (for example, in parts of Australia, South America, and South Africa).

By and large, it's just huge.Botanical Garden! But a good garden. And, if you like to consider different plants growing in different parts of the world, then you definitely need to be here. If you want species and something more unusual, then in the cloud forest.

Cloud Forest

This greenhouse is slightly smaller in area but higher. Its climate is tropical, cool and humid.
The only building here is 42 meter mountain. You climb it on the elevator, and go down - on a circular bridge. Only in such a sequence, so conceived. So do not worry, do not have to climb up the hill.

From this mountain from 35 meters high collapseswaterfall. He is the first to meet you right after the turnstiles. There are many people, and although I don’t like crowds, it didn’t spoil my impression. Pavilion stunning. Really, as in a fairy tale, a tropical fairy tale. Well, these bridges, scaffolding, like in the forest at Robin Hood. You walk at a height, you look around at the greenery, you do not want to go down to the ground at all.

At the end of the route, before you go out,you pass along the lowest level, along the corridor of plants. Small ponds, statues, a crocodile-headed shop. Here plants can be viewed closer, everything is signed.

Honestly, I liked the Cloudy Forest.so much so that I would recommend him to look first of all in the Gardens near the Gulf. Only it is better to do this when it gets dark, so that all the lights come on. He looks less spectacular during the day. I specifically went when it was light, and waited until it was dark.
