SG Series: Day 2

Continuing my travel post from a couple of days ago—where I took you guys back to the day 1 of my recent Singapore trip—this time, I’m going to share with you lots of photos that I captured from my Gardens by the Bay visit.

Before getting into my story of how it felt to visit this amazing place, I wanted to share with you my first thought. To be frankly speaking, I assumed that it was going to be hot and humid—just like typical summer. But I was literally shocked when I entered the first conservatory and it felt kind of cold and breezy. Of course, it’s fully air conditioned.

(Find out how we got to Gardens by the Bay below)

It’s pretty easy to fall in love with this place, let me tell you. There were two spots/conservatories that we had the chance to visit: Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. Inside the Flower Dome, we could see lots of lots of beautiful plants and flowers—from hydrangea to chrysanthemum— and of course, took plenty of pictures of them. This conservatory looks so bright and colorful and anything, but ugly! I couldn’t describe how attractive each plant and flower looks. I spent a lot of time capturing them, because I wanted to share these photos with you guys! My mom and sister looked so happy as well because they’re both so into plant and flower kinda stuffs!

We went here when it was around the Spring Festival aka Chinese New Year, and they provided a station inside the Flower Dome where we could try to write Chinese calligraphy in gold ink. Definitely worth trying!

The next conservatory we visited was the Cloud Forest. According to the official website of Gardens by the Bay, the Cloud Forest showcases plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000 metres above sea level. It features a 35-metre-tall mountain covered in lush vegetation, shrouding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. We could take the lift to the top of the waterfall and then stroll along the walkway to have an aerial view from above.

I felt that it was much colder inside the Cloud Forest compared to the previous conservatory— if you ever plan on visiting this place, make sure to bring something to cover yourself. The floor was also kind of slippery and wet because of the waterfall, so please consider wearing comfortable shoes.

All in all, this quick trip was so fun! I couldn’t believe that I had never been to both SEA Aquarium and Gardens by the Bay until two weeks ago. Should have visited these places a long time ago 😉

My advice if you ever want to visit Singapore, make sure to stop by these top-rated tourist attractions. Always Google and search for another must-visit spots as this country has a lot of hidden treasures!

How we got to Gardens by the Bay:

The easiest way to get to this place would be via MRT. Go to the nearest MRT station you can reach, and alight at Bayfront station. Take Exit B and follow the direction. (read full instruction here)

About the tickets:

We bought the tickets online and printed them prior to our departure. There’s no need to redeem the ticket once we arrived as we got the barcodes on the tickets already.

PS. We bought the tickets for two conservatories: Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. That means, we got two tickets printed for each of us. One for the Flower Dome, and one for the latter. More information about the Gardens by the Bay, click here.
