GARDENS BY THE BAY
Singapore has always prided itself on its green spaces, from its Botanic Gardens to the interconnected walkways linking the Southern Ridges. But never have they been as accessible – or as spectacular – as Gardens by the Bay.
The Skypark at Marina Bay Sands looks down on this otherworldly eco-park, which opened next door to it in 2012, but it’s far more impressive at ground level.
It’s free to wander around the exotic vertical gardens of the Supertree Grove in Bay South (open 5:00 AM – 2:00 AM daily), but if you have 15 minutes to spare in the evening, plan your visit around one of the twice-nightly sound-and-light shows.
