Any video promoting Singapore Tourism will have a clip of 3 things for sure, The Marina Bay Sands, The Singapore Flyer with the beautiful skyline of Singapore and the Super Trees from the Super Tree Grove from the Gardens By the Bay. These super trees are probably one of the most photographed in Singapore and is rated really high on TripAdvisor as a must see. When we visited Singapore in 2013 as tourists, we did not get a chance to visit Gardens by the bay and hence this visit has been our wish list for quite a while now and we finally visited Gardens by the Bay on 25th December 2015. Post-visit we feel it was the best time to go as Christmas celebrations were in full swing and there was real festive cheer to the entire place


How did we go From Marina Bay Sands Hotel?

Gardens by the Bay is just a 5-10 minutes walk away.

1. Cloud forest Dome: The first thing that came to my mind as soon as we entered was WOW!!!. you basically get the feeling that you are transported to another world. There is a beautiful waterfall as soon you enter and you feel you are really in a forest. The best way to explore the place is to go to the  top most level and slowly walk down.( There are directions to guide you ). A really good place to spend 1 to 1.5 hours.

2. Flower Dome: We did not have time to visit the flower dome as we reached the gardens only around 4 in the evening and spent a lot of time at the Cloud forest dome and did not want to miss the festivities at the Super Tree Grove. We have heard great reviews of this dome too, and would be back to visit some other time.

3. Super Tree Grove: After we had finished with the Cloud forest dome we headed over to the Super Tree grove. Since it was Christmas evening there were a lot of stalls selling some awesome food. It really was great to grab something to eat, while watching the choir in full swing followed by the light show.

4. OCBC Skyway: This is again a paid attraction and unfortunately for us,  there was a huge queue to go on top. However during our next visit, we would surely love to go on top and enjoy views from the skyway.

Tips :

1. Probably the most important tip, be sure to wear really comfortable footwear as you really need to walk lots.

2. It really may not be the best idea to try to cover all that the gardens has to offer in one visit. If you want to cover everything in one visit, it is better to be at the gardens in the afternoon, visit both the domes and watch the light show at the Super Tree Grove from the OCBC skyway. But do be prepared for a really tiring day.

3. There are shuttle services within the Gardens to taxi you between attractions. If travelling with elderly it is better to take the shuttle service.
