Gardens by the Bay is a project initiated by the National Parks Board of Singapore with the goal of transforming the city from being a simple ‘Garden City’ into an actual city within a garden.
Gardens by the Bay, alongside other recent installations in the property, now comprise Singapore’s new downtown area. It consists of a large open garden which is free to walk through and other paid attractions including the “Cloud Forest” and the “Flower Dome“.
Gardens by the Bay Singapore, MRT, Light Show & Ticket Price
Enter the park from the Dragonfly Bridge, which is the perfect spot to get some photographs of the large Supertrees, the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands.
The Giant Super Trees are erected in the Super Tree Grove, each with a height between 25 and 50 meters. The Super Trees have large shade canopies, complete with their own lighting and sounds systems, allowing visitors to enjoy their tour any time of the day. Giving great views of Marina Bay and its surrounds, the Skyway is definitely worth a visit. At night, the Supertrees come to life with a light and sound show at 7:45pm and 8:45pm every night.
Amongst the popular attractions in the Garden are the two uniquely shaped dome conservatories called the ‘Flower Dome’ and the ‘Cloud Forest’, which gives visitors a different kind of ‘forest’ experience. Both large domes are delightfully air-conditioned providing a much-needed break from the Singapore heat.
The Cloud Forest welcomes you with a large waterfall and visitors are invited to walk through the forest and high up on the walkways for beautiful views. The Flower Dome is a unique experience as visitors will be able to see and enjoy thousands of plants from all over the world. Separated into “worlds”, you can view amazing plants from Australia, flowers from Japan, cactus from South America and Baobab Trees from Africa.
Catch the MRT to the Gardens via the Circle or Downtown Line. Alight at Bayfront MRT Station (CE1/DT16). Take Exit B and follow the underground linkway. Exit and cross the Dragonfly Bridge or Meadow Bridge into Gardens by the Bay.
Can I keep my bags at the entrance until my visit ends?
I have looked up the amenities list on the official website and it’s noted that electronic lockers are available for a one-time rental charge for up to 21 hours.
Various sizes are available at the Golden Garden, The Canopy and at Floral Fantasy, with prices ranging from $2, $4 and $6.
Note that only $2 (SGD) notes are accepted in the machines.
is the place handicapped friendly?
Reviewing the accessibility information on the official website, it does appear that petty much all areas are handicapped or wheelchair accessible.
First off, there is a shuttle service that runs every 10 minutes between Bayfront Plaza and the Conservatories (the Shuttle Service is free for all wheelchair passengers). If needed, you can also rent a wheelchair for $2 per day.
As for the main attractions, by memory with Supertree Grove, you take an elevator both up and down and the entry and exit points are linked via the ramped walkway.
For Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome, it’s stated that there are ramps within both that make it wheelchair accessible. There is lift access to every level in the Cloud Forest, and the Flower Dome is rather flat, with gentle slopes connecting each point.
I hope this helps and have a great day out!

I want to know if we do not visit flower domes (forest & cloud) but wants to visit only skyride at the time of light show at Gardens by the Bay.. Is it possible..?
If yes, then how much the ticket price?
Yes, you can just visit the Supertree Grove for just the light show. If you just want to view from the ground, admission is free. If you want to walk along the walkways in the Supertree Grove, then tickets cost $8 for Adults and $5 for Children.
