IMG_20140606_123207

If you are a nature lover or even just a lover then don’t miss visiting Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. This kind of a facility can be erected only in a city like Singapore as it is a global city with a global audience. Gardens by the bay is a marvel of an architecture having two domes comprising of green houses. One dome is called the Flower Dome and the other is called Cloud Forest. Even the external architecture of the park is scientifically designed to be extremely energy efficient. Let talk at the two domes in bit more detail

Flower Dome:

Flower Dome is designed to house plants and flowers from various parts of the world. You will get to see from cactus to bonsai. All around the place you have boards which gives you inform about the habitat. Also you have points where you can get details via headphone in your own language. The walk way look beautiful with different flowers all around which ends in a central area where you have a beautiful lawn with Eiffel tower made of natural growth in the center. There were a newlywed couple who were busy getting there photo-shoot done and I also saw a couple with their kids exchanging vows which was interesting. It is a paradise for photographers and I myself got the chance to click some beautiful pictures with some splendid interesting closeup and micro shots from my mobile camera, which are shared below

Cloud Forest:

Cloud Forest is a very interesting concept wherein you are greeted by a beautiful man made waterfall. The fall should be between 8 to 10 floors tall and is surrounded by various forest vegetation. You will see various trees and creepers both with and without flowers. The ideal way to see this place is to go to the top by the lifts and then walk down which is surrounding the waterfall. As you come to the final two floors you have an area which gives you a demonstration of the facility and you have an AV on what will happen globally in case there is +5 degree rise in temperature. Some interesting pictures below

Gardens by the bay is a world call architecture and is a must watch for you and your children’s. Ticket for four should call you around 100 Singapore dollars. You will need an entire day to really do justice to your visit but a crash course will also be of minimum half a day.
