The Gardens in the City

Untitled
Don't get dizzy seeing this! :-D


Tree Top Walk

Cloud Forest



Singapore's latest and the most amazing attraction to date is The Gardens by The Bay. It is a huge complex (101 hectares) consisting of two temperature-controlled domes, giant trees, a lake and several themed gardens. Click this to check the map.


The garden was officially opened on 29 June 2012, and has been attracting many many many people, both tourists and locals to check out the place. 

I spent an afternoon at this magnificent garden with family, and it was not enough. I think i have to go there again...to explore the place in details but in the meantime, here are moments that i could immortalize from the trip :-) I only managed to go inside the two domes, flower dome and cloud forest. 

The flower dome replicate cool-dry climate of the Mediterranean regions such as South Africa, California, Spain and Italy. Cacti and beautiful flowers fill this dome. Flower lovers...you will be in awe!!!

The cloud forest showcases plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000-metres sea level.
The moment you enter the dome, you will be welcomed by a tall indoor waterfall!!! Slightly wet attire during the tour was no problem at all for me hehe. 


Futuristic green

They all look tiny!!!

Kebun di dalam kota. Sehebat-hebatnya Singapura, maju modern canggih... toh masih suka lihat kebun, tanaman2 kayak di desa2 di Indonesia. Bikin sejuk, segar, tidak stres. Kebunnya Singapura sangat terawat, ditata dengan seni, sangat cantik. Kita di Indonesia kurang begitu perhatikan kebun, tanaman, taman, karena semuanya bisa tumbuh sendiri secara liar. Yang fokus memperhatikan kebun cuma perumahan2 elite.

Dana untuk perawatan taman atawa kebun di pemerintah kota/kabupaten sangat kecil. Lebih banyak dipakai untuk biaya jalan2 DPRD atau ongkosi klub sepakbola yang prestasinya tidak jelas.

Bang Hurek,
Iya...yang begini ini kita musti belajar dari Singapura. Musti tahu juga kenapa tanaman dan pohon di sini warnanya selalu hijau sedang di Jakarta selalu kelihatan berwarna coklat kotor...hehe.
Harusnya yang namanya jalan-jalan studi banding atau apalah namanya itu sudah DILARANG sekarang ya? Semua tidak ada hasilnya...cuma jadi lahan cari kesempatan saja. Kesal membaca beritanya.
