After years of traveling to countries and cities all over the globe, I've never found a place to love more than I loved Singapore. It was more than love to be honest: I felt deeply connected to this glorious city which has mastered excellence in all levels. Walking around its perfectly-clean streets and beautiful corners, I felt that special bond only a genuine traveler is able to experience.
You could tell I was more than excited to be on this trip if you've been watching my INSTAGRAM STORIES while there.
I know you're more than curious to know whether Singapore is worth visiting and for how long. Well, for me, Singapore is a 3-day destination. Three days are more than enough to explore the city and for the most part, a visit there is either combined with a trip to Bali or picked as a stopover on the way to Indonesia.
A 48-hour guide will be up on the blog shortly. The 48-hour travel series is probably my favorite, as I have been expertly trained to explore and offer you the very best – just in time! Check out a sample of my 48-hour guide to San Francisco and 48-hour guide to Boston.
This post features my experience visiting the gardens of Singapore or Gardens by the Bay - such an exciting visit! It is a nature park adjacent to the Marina Reservoir featuring the stunning and super-popular Supertree Grove – the immense, tree-like structures you may have seen in movies or cartes-postales.
The development of the Gardens brought life to Singapore's vision to create a "City in a Garden". A visit will convince you of the success of the project.
The park is separated to three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden. Tip: Visit Bay East Garden for a breathtaking view to Singapore's Skyline and it has so much to see, it will totally keep you from seeing anything else around town. It is a dream of a park!
The Supertree Groves are tree-like structures with heights ranging from 25 to 50 meters. The Supetrees are vertical gardens, performing a multitude of functions using environmental technologies such as photovoltaic cells that harness solar energy to preserve a vast range of exotic plants.
The largest Supetrees offer a panoramic view of the Gardens – climb up and enjoy the view!
There is no entrance fee to visit the Gardens – and why would there be one? It is part of the government's strategy to offer high quality of life to all citizens and travelers. The Garden's main entrance is right next to Marina Bay Sands Hotel by the Marina Reservoir.
The view from the hotel's bar is magnificent and you should definitely give it a visit to enjoy the Garden from above. Order your favorite cocktail with the city's best french fries as a side and you will find bliss - I know I did!
