The Gardens by the Bay symbolises Singapore’s dedication to keeping the city covered in green. Hundreds of trees and other plants create a wide landscape of greenery to keep walkers sheltered from the sun. There are a few man-made tree sculptures called Supertrees that have raised walkways between them; for a small fee, a family can have a walk around up here to get a good look at the entire garden.
Marina Bay also hosts the Singapore Flyer, which is the world’s largest observation wheel. At 165 meters in height, visitors can get another awesome view of Singapore. There are lines to get onto the Flyer, and during peak periods it may be crowded in each of the observation boxes. A great place to bring the kids if they’re not afraid of heights!
