A full day exploring reclaimed land. The vision behind the Gardens in the Bay is one thing, the execution another. 5 years and $1billion have created quite an oasis. Poor National Botanic Gardens for Wales must look on in envy at their green houses – creating cloud forests. All rather tastefully done and hammers home global warming message at every opportunity. Given the land pressures for building it is good they remained true to their vision.
At night it turned into a colourful oasis of lights and sound. The Marina Bay Sands complex (the three multi-storeys adorned with an ironing board) promises the best view around – the $25 fee per person brought out our tight side so it’s a mind’s eye view.
