Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

Recommended Posts

Not sure this warrants its own topic but I thought that some of the specimens here were unreal.

Gardens by the Bay is a 100 hectare plot of man made island, they ran out of country. Cost the Singaporean government over a billion dollars to put together and took something like 8 years to finish.

There are plenty of photos online but I thought you lot might like to have a detailed look at the cacti section, which was crazy.

I found the place to be truly breathtaking at points (cloud forrest, immaculate orchids) and disappointing at others (touristy feel, people thinking its funny to throw handfuls of gravel into the top of a half meter high ferrocacti).

Well worth a visit ($20) if you are ever in Singapore!

Hope you Enjoy!

Thanks peeps! my camera ran out of battery luckily the arid section is the first out of the door, I went a little crazy.

Spacemonk, definitely tell them to go! If you buy tickets elsewhere before you turn up it can be ~$5 cheaper. Sunglasses are a must, they decided to put white concrete everywhere so the glare is unbearable!

Fun Fact: the worlds most profitable casino is right next door ;)

They make nationals pay $80 to get in, I think crown should adopt a similar policy...

Awesome range of plants and some rare cacti in there too :) I didn't see a great deal of placards with botanical names, which is a bit of a bummer.

I would love to go there :)

Cheers for the pics man.
