This park includes the South Bay, East Bay, and Central Bay gardens. This place brings a large green space to the city and represents one of Singapore’s most massive architectural works. You might consider visiting the conservatory, which includes the Flower Dome (home of Mediterranean flowers and plants), Cloud Forest (a majestic man-made waterfall that will beat your heart), and Supertree. You will be overwhelmed by 18 giant super trees reaching out in the middle of the blue sky, with the function of synthesizing energy and purifying the air.
When night falls, you’ll be entertained by an impressive visual feast as the super trees and plants take on their jewels – they glow. The twinkling lights from the trees can change color according to the music played.
Located among the super trees is the OCBC Garden Rhapsody area. This place has the “Garden Rhapsody Light and Sound” show at Supertree Grove (around 7:45 – 8:45 pm daily) every night.
