Being dubbed the greenest city on Earth or the Garden City just doesn't seem to be enough for Singapore. The government believes that integrating urban development with the environment is so important that it actually wants to be considered a garden first and a city second, or a "City in a Garden". A tall order but characteristic of Singapore, the plan seems to be coming along nicely.
Gardens by the Bay is a big part of this vision and is a spectacular way for visitors and residents to learn about the various species of fauna that inhabit our world. The Flower Dome replicates the climate of the Mediterranean and houses baobabs and other plants from the desert. The Cloud Forest is a world veiled in mist, replicating a mountain with the world's tallest indoor waterfall. And then there's Supertree Grove, uniquely designed vertical gardens that come alive with a show-worthy display of sound and light at night.
We think that an afternoon or evening spent at Gardens by the Bay is an awesome way for Trabblrs to keep cool in ever-humid Singapore while surrounding themselves in the true essence and ideals of the city. We suggest Trabblrs take a self-guided tour by purchasing the Conservatories Trail Map for $1 and venturing off on their own.
