The world’s only island city-state, the smallest country in Southeast Asia, is also a land of contrasts. It’s the perfect mix of culture, tasty food, extraordinary landmarks and unique architectural icons.
The Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares in central Singapore. Admire the Supertree Grove - the tree-like structures that dominate the Gardens' landscape with heights between 25 metres (82 ft) and 50 metres (160 ft). The park also features the Flower Dome, the world's largest glass greenhouse and the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. The Cloud Forest Dome replicates the cool moist conditions found in mountain regions in South-East Asia. Take the lift to the peak in the clouds to discover the unique plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000 metres above sea level.
