Behind the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore is a very modern 'Gardens by the Bay' complex. Has been designed to bring the world's Gardens to Singapore. It complements Singapore's botanical Gardens and does not try to replace them.
The islands tropical climate is ideal the many plants to flourish, but others have to have more specific growing conditions. To join conservatories have been built and unlike most conservatories. These ones are designed to keep the plants cool. Entrance to the Gardens is free but you have to pay to go into the conservatories and up on the Skyway that links the man-made 'Supertrees'.
The first glass conservatory is called the flower down. Here you can wander past scenes from the Mediterranean coast or the Australian bush. The organizersof ship to very mature trees from these regions. There are thousand-year-old olive trees and unusual shaped baobab trees.
There are also many European flowers exhibited which to many European visitors seem normal and commonplace but to the Singapore locals and other Asian holidaymakers, seem exotic.of ship to very mature trees from these regions.

The second large conservatory, the taller of the two, is called cloud forest. An artificial mountain has been built inside it. The garden designers have tried to recreate a call moist tropical mountain region complete with pitcher plants firms and cascading waterfalls. External aerial walkways allow you to experience and observe the differences altitude can cause on the distribution of plants.
In the centre of the park of the iconic dramatic man-made supertrees. They looks like something from a science-fiction film. At night the trees come to life with a choreographed sound and light show at 7:45 PM and 8:45 PM. There is a lift that runs up the inside of the tallest tree. It is here that you start your walk on the Skyway. It links the trees together at a height of 22 m above the ground. Many people start their two of the Gardens by the way, by jumping on the garden cruiser tram ride from the visitor centre. It includes an audio guide and his wheelchair friendly.
