HOLY PLANTS! If you love nature and plants, this destination is an absolute must-visit. I initially visited Singapore’s Gardens By the Bay on a late-night stopover in 2015 but had the chance to return to spend plenty of time exploring this fantastic destination over the years.
The gardens are free and sort-of open 24 hours a day; however the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome are only available from 09:00-21:00. Exploring the gardens is accessible any time of day or night, but the lighting is minimal at night. Getting to the Gardens by the bay is accessible by car, or you can take the footbridge that connects the gardens to the shops at the Marina Bay Sands.
