Oh how I miss Singapore! So many beautiful and wonderful places I have been to. It’s just wonderful! The places I have been in Singapore were Universal Studios which is part of Sentosa, Adventure Cove, Singapore Zoo and Gardens by the Bay. But my favorite place most of all is Gardens by the Bay! It’s so beautiful, big and full of many kinds of plants and flowers. Too bad it lasted for a short time. That is because our schedule to go there was the last day we stayed in Singapore. Nevertheless, I did have so much fun.
This it how it all began. My family and I went to the Gardens by the Bay on a Saturday morning. When we arrived there, I was amazed by the things around me. One can’t miss the massive Supertrees. These tree-shaped vertical gardens are between nine to 16 stories tall. So tall right! I hope we had a chance to walk on the suspended walkway between two Supertrees to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the gardens.
The first thing we did in Garden by the Bay was going to the Flower Dome.The Flower dome is a place where different kinds of flowers, tropical palm trees, and plants are shown like cactus, white cactus, orchids etc. I was really captivated by such beautiful sight around me, it was like a flower paradise! The bursting of such variety colors of flowers and plants were fascinating. It was hard to move around because I tended to stop and take photos most of the time in every corner. Another equally interesting place we went to was the Cloud Forest. It was so cold though, inside that enclosed man-made forest! I had to ask my Mom for her jacket because I forgot to bring mine from the hotel. When I entered the place, low and behold, there in front of me was an enormous waterfall! It’s really an amazing place! Aside from the indoor waterfalls, it also had some amazing sculptures, fauna, different types of rainforest plants at all levels, and a bridge top walk. The waterfall filled the dome with soothing cloud-like water mist, and the trails weaved in and out of the man-made mountain making our stroll to the top easy, with lots of nice little photo-stops on the way. I also found that other tourists are happy to take our photos when asked. We went up higher to see a bigger view. We went up the highest part of the waterfall. I looked down and it was so high! On the top level was a glass dome and small ponds. It housed the innocent looking, but carnivorous, pitcher plants. These plants eat flies and other insects by luring them inside the plant with its sweet nectar. It was quite an interesting tour really. I learned a lot too. It felt amazing especially at the top-most floor! We happily crossed the bridge around the waterfall. It’s covered with mist and lush vegetation, which was absolutely refreshing! After the tour, it was time to go back to Thailand.
That was a lovely experience and a memorable time for me and my family. I want to go there again!
