    Definitely Do the Cloud Forest
    If you come to Singapore, you have to check this place out. If you don't have time, I'd just check out the Cloud Forest and the OCBC Skyway. If you can, come in the evening for the Supertree light show at 7:45 PM. I came here, via MRT, on a late Monday afternoon in early December 2022. Apparently if it rains, you will not be granted access to the OCBC Skyway. At the time I went, there was a Christmas thing going on so there was no reentry after leaving the Supertree Grove area, which something I did not know about. They made me pay another $12 on top of everything else to get back into the Supertree area for the 7:45 PM light show. This place is huge. Give yourself plenty of time and where good walking shoes. I didn't get to see the Floral Fantasy but if I ever go back to Singapore I'd probably try that one. The guy I bought tickets from didn't recommend that one so I didn't check it out.

    Garden Rhapsody is free and at 7:45 and 8:45 each night, lasting about 15 min
    An obvious tourist attraction you should check out when visiting Singapore. Yes, it can get crowded but it's definitely worth checking out the Supertree Grove (this is free but if you want to do the sky walk, you need to buy tickets). It's more crowded at night since most people want to see the trees lit up at night - especially for the Garden Rhapsody show, which is every night at 7:45 and 8:45. The show lasts for about 15 minutes. If you're coming from the Shoppes at Marina Bay, there's a way to cut through the mall, instead of walking all the way outside and around to the Grove. The day time is much less crowded. It's still pretty in the day time so I would recommend checking it out both times if you can. During the day, there are some hawker stalls set up by the Supertrees. Also in the same vicinity is the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome (tickets required for each). You would need a whole day just to explore the area, especially if you want to lump in Marina Bay as well. We ended up trekking to the area on two separate days from Chinatown (where we were staying) and it was totally worth the trip.

    So much to see
    So so much to see at GBTB. I visited twice, once in the day and again in the evening. Didnt have enough time to see everything, will make a return visit when I am back. I saw the evening light show - just amazing. Get there early and secure your place on the floor (yes thats right). As the show starts, lie back and prepare to be amazed.

    Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy a well worth visit here.
    We spent a full day here visiting the botanical gardens and both domes. One dome has a tropical jungle/avatar theme. This has walkways at various heights (I visited all but my partner, who has a fear of heights, only managed the lower level). The other dome showcases various worldwide gardens and had great Christmas themed displays. We only had 2 days in Singapore so didn't manage to visit on the evening. We would thoroughly recommend.

    I really like visiting Gardens by the Bays. I will visit the place again when visiting Singapore
    My husband and I went to Singapore on July 2022. One of our destinations is Gardens by the Bay. The Gardens by the Bay is a nature park in the Central Region of Singapore. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden. Before 2022, we have visited there. But after covid-19, we could explore Gardens by the Bay. Beyond the flora and fauna that you’ll find here, admire the Gardens’ iconic structures – architectural marvels that reimagine nature with artistic finesse. That is beautiful place which you must visit when in Singapore. We love being in the cloud forest. Place to one of the world’s tallest indoor waterfalls and a lush mountain clad with a lot of plants from around the world, Cloud Forest rewards some adventurous. You can find some of the world’s most exotic plant species. But flower dome is beautiful also. If you want to buy some souvenir, you can visit a gift shop. So, when you are in Singapore, don't forget visit this place.

    Nice gardens, don’t waste money on the domes.
    If you are visiting gardens by the bay, don’t bother to pay for the 2 domes. A waste of money. Just stick with the free parts and watch the free light shows in the evening. The avatar display was tacky. Just a few plastic items stuck between the plants.

    Not happy with ticket window
    Gardens by the bay is a beautiful experience. But I wish they would warn you when purchasing tickets that if it rains then you are unable to go on the Supertree Observatory. We purchased our tickets and were advised to go straight to the Observatory based on the time of day. So we did. We arrived less then 10 minutes later at the entrance and wee told that due to rain we could not walk out but we could go up and wait. As it was a one time entry we chose to go up and wait. We waited over half an hour before choosing to leave ( there was only half an hour left to closing time of the observatory at this stage). At the ticket windows we should have been told that due to rain you may not experience it all - it became a waste of money for us.
    Hello! Thank you for your feedback and we’re sorry for the experience. We’ve worked this out with our frontline and will ensure that this doesn’t happen again. We hope to welcome you back to the Gardens soon!

    Lost and Found
    Getting lost and being found! The flowers are unbelievably real. I thought it was mixture of real and not! I was extremely fascinated with flowers and Christmas designs and decorations that I didn't realize that the people I was with were gone! Sadly, they don't know how to find the way. So, at some point, I wasn't able to continue to enjoy and explore more of the places because I ended up searching for them! But then, while looking for my friends, I didn't miss getting some glimpses of every attraction I passed by. It was evening so the Christmas feeling was awesome. The Christmas lights, decorations, and the colorful flowers have made more magical. People were so busy taking photos of every Christmas Decoration is and I was also busy taking snaps while walking. I wanted to stay more but it was getting late. It was a fun time!

    Don’t miss it
    A rainy visit but lovely nonetheless. So much to see & there are various displays that cost a bit for a family but there are also free parts to walk around. It gets busy so book early. We enjoyed the boardwalk & the light displays.

Its vibrant night lighting, diverse range of plant species, waterfront promenade and lush lawns make it a perfect spot for a romantic stroll or a fun family outing. Don't miss out on this magical experience!

The domes were much smaller than expected, and way overpriced for what they were. I recommend you save your $$ and hire a bike and ride around the rest of the Gardens instead.

This was a disappointment! Maybe in evening or night time worth to visit but day time nothing special. Just huge " cable tree" , overestimated and overpriced .

Free to enter, and broken down into different areas representing different areas of the world. Very pleasant to walk around. There are some chargeable attractions within the area but you can view the extensive park area for free.

We got the Metro to the gardens by the bay complex.The Dome and the lift to the lookout costs extra,we looked around the main Tree skywalk area.This is easily acessable from the street area by foot and the Metro. I recommend taking the lift to the Skywalk at sunset.( as then theres a live light,music and laser show twice an evening)..This is worth visiting and very spectacular views over the trees.The Trees are made of steel metal,and the Skywalk goes between the trees.Theres a ticket office on site, to get the lift up to the walkway.
.The best attraction ever in Singapore.

The two domes are air conditioned. YAY!!! Beautiful plants and arrangements and places to rest. The Cloud Forest is my favorite of the two domes.

Stunning views available to all! Can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around, however the specific attractions were quite expensive so we didn't go into them (so can't comment on value, despite them having raving reviews!). The gardens themselves are well kept and there are plenty of food/drink outlets and a souvenir shop.

I visited twice, during the day and at night. I must say the night made Gardens by the Bay even more impressive. Sadly, they were setting up for the Christmas holidays while I was there so lot of construction fencing and site. I did the treetop walk which was impressive. The attraction is free to walk through.

It is well worth to see the evening Supertrees Light Show if you have the time and opportunity as it will be a memorable experience. There are two shows during the evening- the first one scheduled at 7:45p.m. Just make sure you arrive by 7:15p.m. or so as it does get crowded to locate a spot to sit for the show. Sit under one of the Supetrees and the colorful show will be right on top as you look up.
The light show has themes and since we were there during "National Day," Singapore songs were featured with the synchronized lights blinking and changing color. The views were unbelievable with the lighted Supertrees and the Marina Bay Sands in the background. People were very orderly and polite, a very well-managed outdoor light show.
