Gardens By The Bay: A Nighttime Stroll

Our last visit to Singapore gave James and I the opportunity to take a closer look at another one of Singapore’s iconic masterpieces. Gardens By The Bay was recently crowned World Building of the Year at the prestigious World Architecture Festival 2012 in October. While not exactly a building per se, the attraction houses some of the most amazing pieces of man-made architecture one would ever lay eyes on. Just so you know, the award-winning horticultural Gardens span a massive 101 hectares and houses over 250 thousand rare plants. What’s more, at night, you get an absolutely striking view of the gigantic Marina Bay Sands integrated resort, all lit up and imposing. Truly a magnificent sight. This recent online article published by the Daily Mail (along with some gorgeous pictures) pretty much sums up the spectacular Gardens By The Bay.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because I’m heading back to busy, bustling Singapore tomorrow and to celebrate that, I’m giving you guys a little snippet of my hometown. I seriously can’t wait to take my camera out on regular excursions over there and come back here to share new pictures with everyone! You don’t get Christmas lights here like what you get in Singapore, so I’m very excited to get see what the amazing little island has to offer this year!

    1. I think Singapore is a must-see place for people interested in architecture! It’s amazing how much it has changed in a single generation. It went from being a third world country to one of the richest countries in the world. That is truly an amazing feat!

    1. Can’t say I’ve seen Cloud Atlas, but I can totally imagine! Also, I’ve been taking lots of pictures here in Singapore and I’m so excited to get back home to Australia so I can put them up here! :)
