Singapore: Botanical wonderland

Singapore gardens by the bay

What was I thinking flying solo on a plane with a lil one intow to meet Luke in Singapore? Answer: My desperation of a holiday abroad. I honestly thought that cookies & books would keep the tantrums at bay mid-flight, what a rookie mama mistake:( Well I couldn’t wait to get the f off the plane & no doubt all the passengers high-fived eachother when this mama with the screaming toddler departed the plane. High fives all round.

Gardens by the bay

To put the stressful flight behind me, we thought it would be nice to embrace some of the greenery that Singapore has in spades. On the short cab ride over from the hotel to the Gardens by the bay, Luke heard Kobe say “trees, big trees” for the first time. Sure the cab driver was the one who pointed this out to Luke who was unaware Kobe was pointing to the tree & saying “tre”. But it was a sweet moment nonetheless:)

Gardens by the bay is a botanical wonderland & fit our criteria of somewhere serene. While there are plenty of free walks around to partake in if you have the time & are immune to the dry humidity. No one should overlook the Supertree grove skywalk.

For a small fee you are practically walking in the clouds in secured pathways suspended in air. You get a view of Singapore wheel, The Marina bay sands hotel with the boat ontop & all of the Gardens of the bay park. I can just imagine how beautiful it would be lit up at night-time (or I can just google hee hee).


We did the best we could to explore the flowers that Singapore boasts. However the humidity (ie. sweat dripping everywhere) & hungry bellies (the lure of Chinatown food was calling us) got the best of us before we could get to the flower dome or cloud forest. What I did learn was the grass was definitely greener in Singapore🙂

Happy travels!
