Gardens By The Bay / Part I.

Negative0-34-01(1)

Gardens by the Bay was one of the few big-time tourist attraction I went to during my trip to Singapore over the Chinese Lunar New Year – it is huge, very man-made but takes you on a journey that is almost encyclopedic. I didn’t quite believe I was going to enjoy it but being a huge fan of flowers and plants, my curiosity got the better of me (in the best way possible). I am still marveling at the sheer variety of flowers they showcase in this humongous garden – these were taken along my walk from the MRT station, into and around the Heritage Gardens.

  1. Wow! The first photograph depicts a place that looks almost unreal! It truly must have been incredible and I think I would have loved it – I’m such a fan of plants too!
    I love all the macro shots you’ve taken of those colourful exotic flowers!

    1. Thank you, Polly! I spent an afternoon in the Gardens and was incredibly charmed that these amazing varieties of plants and flowers are made available in one place. They were each so beautiful in details that I couldn’t stop with my camera! :)

  2. I’ve heard about those gardens, I’ll try to see them while I’m there, (even though I hate crowds and if there’s a lot of people I’ve might run the other way). So many plants and flowers, you must have enjoyed having a camera a lot! They are lovely!

    1. I know exactly what you mean – I hate crowds too – but fortunately when I visited there wasn’t so many people and I hope the same for you when you’re there, Tanit. It is indeed a lovely place to have you breath taken away by plants you might otherwise never get the chance to see!

    1. Haha, I might have made several rounds inside the park just to be sure nothing was missed! Even though I’m not big on tourist spots I think Gardens by the Bay is definitely quite worth a visit. :)

  3. Visit Flower Dome next time, Katie! And bring loads of film when you do. You’ll probably go nuts as I did :) I did not have my film camera yet when I went, but I can only imagine the number of rolls I’d use :)
