Gardens By The Bay

Located in the Marina Bay area of Singapore, this incredible park is famous for the Supertree structures but also features three, distinctive waterfront gardens.

Try not to miss the incredible twice-nightly light show when the tree structures and surrounding exhibits light up the sky and surroundings.

Bay South

Opened in 2012 and the largest of the three gardens, Bay South is home to the Supertrees and the spectacular conservatories.

Supertree Grove

12 of the 18 Supertrees are situated in the Supertree Grove. Measuring between 25 and 50 metres tall the Supertrees have large canopies that provide shade in the day and feature a magnificent display of lights and sounds at night.

  • Supertree OCBC Skyway is a 128 metre long aerial which connects the canopies of two of the supertrees. Incredible views through the Gardens of the Bay and the Marina area.
  • The Supertree Observatory, located in the canopy of the tallest Supertree, provides spectacular, scenic views of the Marina Bay area.
  • Garden Rhapsody is the twice nightly light and sound show that transforms the trees and Gardens into a performance space.

Flower Dome

In 2015 Guinness World Records recognised the Flower Dome as the largest glass greenhouse in the world.

Showcasing plants from five continents in nine separate gardens in a cool, dry, spring Mediterranean climate.

Cloud Forest

The tropical highlands climate in Cloud Forest includes plant life from up to 2,000 metres above sea level and includes the incredible 35 metre tall “mountain” covered in lush vegetation with a 30 metre waterfall.
