My World Tuesday- Gardens By The Bay
This is the latest attraction in Singapore. Gardens By The Bay almost 101 hectares is a very expensive garden, costs almost S$1 billion dollars to built. The aim is to raise the quality of life by enhancing greenery and flora in the city.
The garden consists of three gardens, Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central. You can read more about the three gardens from wikipedia or the official website of Gardens By The Bay.
The main attractions in the Garden must be the two domes (forest cloud and flower dome)with high admission fees of $28 for tourist and $20 for locals and the admission fees of $5 for walking on the skywalk bridge among the supertrees. I will talk about and post photos of the domes in coming posts. For more information on the different admission fees, please refer to the official website of Gardens By The Bay Admission Fees.
Climbing up or take the lift up to the bridge linking the supertrees need to pay S$5 to view the scenery from the top. Very nice experience, no queues in the afternoon as there's no shelter at the bridge from the sun but I was lucky that day was a cloudy day so I had a fun time walking along the bridge and admiring the beauty of the scenery around it. Even though, I have a fear of heights, I just want to experience the view from up there.
From the bridge, we could view nearby Marina Bay Sands Hotel, nice to take photos from up there.
From the top of the bridge, I spotted three graduates of a local university trying to take photos of themselves at the garden.
