Today I am sharing with you the photos that I took when we went to the Gardens by the Bay yesterday.
My sister is in town and she will be staying for a while and decided that for our first tourist attraction, we will visit Singapore’s famous man-made gardens. In this post, I am sharing some of the photos that I took, as well as tips in case you want to explore this Singapore attraction. 😀
As of March 25, 2015, these are the admission rates for the conservatories. The rates are subject to changes and you may visit their website for updates.
For Singapore citizens including PR and pass holders (employment, work permits or dependent) may enjoy discounted rates. Just make sure that you bring your proof of residency (NRIC) as you need to present it at the counter or when you enter the conservatories. To know more about their rate, please click here.
Berry’s Travel Tips:
1. Wear comfortable footwear.
- This is very important because you will definitely have long walks. You may also opt to have the guided tours, but it is expensive. To check out their rates, click here.
- Just a fair warning, if you are taking the MRT on your way home, be ready to walk some more.
2. Bring water bottles.
- Water bottles are allowed and you may refill them from the designated water fountains placed in the facilities.
3. Schedule your trip
- We decided to go on a weekday to avoid the big crowd on weekends.
- You can enjoy more time to take great photos plus, when you get tired, there are places where you can stay and rest your feet for a while. Benches are free to sit on. 🙂
Our stops for today will be the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome (Sun Pavilion and Indian Safari Floral Display). These are the 2 conservatories that we explored during our visit. (Please click on the links provided to go to the related blog posts.)
