If you need a reminder of the ingenious capability of the human mind, take a trip to the breathtaking Gardens by the Bay. Located next to Marina Reservoir and stretched across 250 acres of reclaimed land, this sprawling garden is a marvel of architecture, design and engineering. It can be reached by the Bayfront MRT station. The multi-award winning horticultural destination is made up of two central areas - Bay South Garden (130 acres) and Bay East Garden (79 acres), both equally captivating. The Bay Central Garden (37 acres) acts as a link between Bay East & Bay South Gardens and also includes a 3 km waterfront promenade for scenic walks.
But the list of attractions has just begun! The cooled conservatories are also in two parts, the Flower Dome & the Cloud Forest each around 2.5 acres. The Flower dome earns the reputation as being the world's largest column less glass house & replicates a mild, dry climate found in the Mediterranean as well as other regions like Australia, South America etc. It boasts a collection of more than 32,000 species of plants! Feels like entering a world of perpetual spring.
The Cloud Forest which is slightly smaller offers cool moist conditions comparable with South East Asia and is also famed for the world's largest indoor waterfall. The elevated walkway, the OCBC Skyway at a height of 22m and 128m long connect two of the larger Supertrees and offer a panoramic aerial view of the Gardens & Marina Bay skyline. The Supertrees come alive at night with a light and music show called the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.
While the South Garden is characterised by quirky Supertrees (16 stories high)that resemble Singapore's national flower, Vanda 'Miss Joaquim', the waterfront promenade of the East garden offers impeccable views of the city skyline. Besides these hard to miss focal points, Gardens by the Bay has a multitude of hidden gems, waiting to be discovered!
The Dragonfly & Kingfisher lakes apart from being a thing of beauty have an important role to play. Apart from balancing the proportion of nutrients in the water and ensuring water quality, they are a rich source of aquatic life from fish to plants.
Considering the size of the place, it would be a good idea to get a map before you enter, to find the best route around the place. There are self guided trails offered that last from one to four hours depending on your interest.
There's just one place in the whole of Singapore that offers panoramic views of the entire island city, and it's no ordinary Giant Observation Wheel! Located in the heart of downtown Marina Bay, Singapore Flyer looms over the city amidst other superstructures, at a gigantic height of 165 metres.
It was conceived and designed to entice masses with more than just a great view.

Clarke Quay, which is situated close to the mouth of the Singapore River, was the centre of commerce back in the 1980s. A noisy scenario of "tongkangs" (bumboats) and "twakows" (lighters) jostling bow and stern for a place to dock, and unload their cargoes was a common sight.
Today, Clarke Quay is still bustling with life, as the waterfront godowns now play host to some of the classiest and quirkiest entertainment and dining options in Singapore. Named after the city-state's second colonial governor, Sir Andrew Clarke, this historical riverside quay is where Singapore's most whimsical designers have been given carte blanche to bring their dreams to life.
During the day, the zealous market atmosphere of bygone days comes alive amidst rows of redesigned and re-developed warehouses packed with river front dining areas, which attract around two million visitors each year. At night, the entire zone is transformed into a stunning kaleidoscope of colours with an array of quirky alternatives to mainstream clubs.
Clarke Quay is known for waterside restaurants, clubs and bars, but it has more to offer.
G-Max Reverse Bungy, a giant reverse bungy experience is a landmark in itself.
A charming blend of Singapore's traditional and modern facets, Clarke Quay offers an interesting potpourri of food, sights, drinks and entertainment all in the same amazing vicinity.
