The largest of the gardens of Bay South Garden is 54 hectares. Get lost you don’t succeed, there are signs with signs everywhere, so you can easily navigate. On the territory of a great many sculptures, one of which is the sculpture of a sleeping boy. Its size is 10 meters and weight – 7 tons. It feels like a baby is floating above the ground, but in fact it rests on a special, almost imperceptible, props. This is the work of sculptor Mark Quinn, who imitated my child.
Also on site is a free children’s aqua-zone with different fountains. In the aqua-zone there is a dressing room, shower, toilet. For a child it will be a great opportunity to play at the same time. take a break from the heat, so I recommend taking a walk in the garden towel and swimsuit / swimming trunks.

Garden Gardens by the Bay
This greenhouse is slightly smaller in area but higher. Climate in It is tropical, cool and wet. Only thing here construction 42 meter mountain. You climb it on the elevator, and go down – on a circular bridge. Only in such sequences, so conceived. So do not worry, uphill not have to climb.
From this mountain from 35 meters high falls waterfall. He is the first greets you right after the turnstiles. There are many people, and although I don’t I love the crowd, it did not spoil my impression. Pavilion awesome. Really, like a fairy tale, a tropical fairy tale. Well, these bridges, scaffolding, as in the forest at Robin Hood. You walk at height, you look on the sides to the greens, do not want to go down to the ground altogether.
At the end of the route, before you go out, you walk along the lowest level along the corridor of plants. Small ponds, statues, a crocodile-headed shop. Here the plants can take a closer look, everything is signed.
To be honest, I liked the Cloudy Forest so much that I would recommended him to look first of all in the Gardens at the Gulf. Only it is better to do this when it gets dark so that all the lights come on. He looks less spectacular during the day. I specifically went when it was light It was, and waited until it becomes dark.
