Very relaxing tranquil spot in the city.
The audio bus tour was a bit pricey for what you got and the gardens are a very large space for anyone who has mobility challenges. Any shuttles we saw were not able to pick us up.
Also, we had spent some time there and wanted to have a nice lunch between touring the two main exhibits and we were not able to find a restaurant. We asked every employee we saw and were directed to walk here, walk there, restaurant was closed for special function, more walking, more shuttles that would not assist with a ride, more employees that couldn’t assist with food directions.
We eventually left with only visiting one of the exhibits, but when we returned the following morning they did honour our ticket from the previous day.
All in all it is a lovely place and I believe they have a nice evening light show which we didn’t see.
Best to buy all tickets together rather than audio tour separately as we did. You would save a little money.

We really enjoyed our visit. I recommend going first thing in the morning before it gets too crowded. While there were a lot of people there, we never felt too overwhelmed by a crowd. We loved the Cloud Forest and walking at the top of the Supertrees. The weather was perfect during our visit, so the heat wasn't an issue, though having a layer in the Cloud Forest is a good idea. We also enjoyed lunch in the food court. Like all of Singapore, it's fairly expensive, but we got a discount with our boarding passes from Singapore Air (and there are other ways to get a little bit off the price). Definitely recommend!

Very impressive! I would recommend to visit the flower and cloud domes during midday hours and stroll around the remainder of the park during daylight. The floral fantasy attraction should not be missed as well. If you are planning to book tickets for the observatory I would advise two things, first, no need to get tickets for the skywalk as the observatory will be much better views and will suffice. Second, go to the observatory just before sunset, the views are breathtaking, the wind is refreshing, and you get to see the gardens transform with the amazing lighting they have. Don't miss the light and music show at 7:45 & 8:45 pm.

I am not a plant person and I love Gardens by the Bay. First time visit even though I'm from Singapore... I went during the Christmas period so there were a lot more displays to see.

Stayed for over 3 hours exploring all the different exhibits including the Flower Dome etc. Went back in the evening on another day to see the Christmas Wonderland and the light show.

A good tip! If you're short on time and want to make your money's worth, go in the late afternoon...! That way you get to explore the place in the day, have dinner and continue exploring at night all for 1 single price!!! Most exhibits allows for re-entry, except for the Skypark.

So go to that place last, just before sunset to take photos of the city and stay there for a little longer to have a bird's eye view of the city lights and the light show on the Super Trees!

We went here on a very bad day, it was hot and humid and it was tiring. The only thing I wanted was to escape someplace with A.C.
We went though the domes as fast as we could. The gardens are still amazing, everything is very beautiful.
I recommend not getting tickets with klook in advance because they are for the day you chose and if the weather doesn't allow you to do something, you cannot do the activity some other time or get a refund... The day we were there, there was supposed to be a storm so the walking bridge attraction was closed...
We went back here on a different day when it was cloudy and the weather was nice, we explored the place without buying any tickets, spent around 3 hours just walking around and seeing all the free areas, and it was so much better than the first day.
Another recommendation go there in the afternoon so you can catch the lights, we went around 2pm and finished before sunset, but maybe it was because of the hot weather.

A must when visiting Singapore!
We visited both domes and took the skywalk. We were on the skywalk when the light performance took place. It was spectacular!
I wish we had more time to spend at the gardens.
I recommend coming around 5-6pm and spend at least 3-4 hours there, preferably more!

Alight from Station Bayfront MRT and walk to Garden By The Bay, this stretch of walk is not sheltered and can be quite hot when it is bright sunny day. Garden By The Bay is free entrance, but there are 2 conservatories that need ticket to enter, Flower Dome & Cloud Forest. Certain areas are quite cooling, elderly might need extra clothing.

Gardens by the Bay has become one of Singapores main tourist attractions and it's not hard to see why. The gardens are free to enter, so you can wander under the Super Trees and around the lakes and gardens day or night. In the evening there are two light shows, where the super trees come to life with sound and music.The amazing egg art instalation on the lake is quite mesmerising at night (2020). There are fees to enter the flower dome, cloud forest, supertree walkway etc. Ticketing for these can be quite long at peak times but are worth the wait!

I could use my SingaporeDiscover vouchers for the visit, so I brought my family there for the Hello Kitty Sakura display in April. The flower displays were stunning my daughter loved running around them and taking photos. Finding food was not an issue at all. There is a air-conditioned cafeteria that sold 5-6 different ethnic food. (e.g. Thai, Chinese. Vietnamese etc).

Terribly run place. No explanation for anything. Spent 1 hr standing in line to get to the front of the line, only for them to tell us we need to go to the ticketing booth for time slot. We had tickets in our hands, why the hell would we consider going to the ticketing booth for anything??? So we went to the ticketing booth, got a time slot that is about 1 hr later, than stand in line again for another hour and 15 minutes give or take to get up to the skyway.

We got to watch BOTH of the light show from the line! Despite the fact our time slot is for 8:20. But they are so unorganized that by 8:45, when the last light show started, they still have 8pm time a lot people waiting in line. I am DEAD SERIOUS!

Wasted time aside, even while watching the 1st light show we thought the light show was underwhelming. The 2nd show wasn’t any better.

Wasted 2.5 hrs we won’t get back. That’s my thoughts on this place. Would not recommend.
