First ever trip to Gardens by the Bay

Visited Gardens by the Bay with the family two Mondays back since it was a public holiday for all!
We started with the Flower Dome first, which showcases different types of plants and flowers from all over the world. This place was made to replicate the Mediterranean regions such as South Africa, California and parts of Span and Italy. Upon entering the place you will feel as if you were standing in a giant air-conditioned greenhouse. I didn't take note of all the names of the plants so you can look through the photos if you want to know what to expect! :D

 I found this plant quite interesting because it looked like there was snow on it.

There was an exhibition right in the middle of the dome that had displays resembling the indian theme.

There were oranges growing on a tree. It was just so rare and new to see oranges growing in Singapore!

 The Fuchsia Flower is another one of my favourites! We don't often get to see flowers in multiple colours, what's more this is in pink and purple!

The water was so still and clear I thought it was a marble ground!
This is the place where you can check out places like the Lost World, The Cavern, Crystal Mountain, Earth Check, +5 Degrees and the Secret Garden. Try the Cloud Walk as well, basically you just walk round and round outside the mountain down to the plateau!
We bought the tickets online so we didn't have to queue, cost us $20 per person for 2 conservatories. To be honest it was pretty boring for me as I am not someone who can appreciate trees, plants and flowers. If you are a nature person this will be a good place to visit and kill boredom if you are stuck at home or something!

Walked over to Satay by the Bay for some snack before dinner! It's the best place ever, local hawker food overlooking a nice view heehee!
