SAVE STAY LEARN PLAN DREAM DREAM Gardens by the Bay MARINA BAY, SINGAPORE Located in Southeast Asia, it's hard to believe the Lion City was a quiet fishing village just over a century ago. Now one of the grandest city's in the world, Singapore is an electric powerhouse exploding with vibrant green spaces and the most jaw-dropping blend of exquisite architecture and technology anywhere. After arriving to the world's most awarded airport, complete with a cascading waterfall, outdoor nature trail and swimming pool, to name a few, visitors are launched into an unexpected wonder-world. Art connoisseurs will more than appreciate the National Gallery Singapore, which showcases the area's largest collection of Singaporean and Southeast Asian art. Add a visit to the "lotus-inspired" Art and Science Museum or the high-rise Marina Bay Sands and see for yourself why the "stranded surfboard" is one of the most expensive buildings in the world. But the unexpected magic happens at Gardens by the Bay, the world's largest column-less greenhouse, complete with thousands of plant species from all over world and housed under a domed roof. With 18 man-made solar-powered super trees, the 250-acre garden is an illuminating representation of Singapore's connection to nature. Right next door the Cloud Forest boasts a 115-foot indoor waterfall - the tallest in the world. Around every turn, visitors will relish in the unexpected, from night safaris and aerial walkways, to world-renown cuisine, entertainment and, yes, a 495-foot roof-top pool. See why Singapore more than delivers a unique and unforgettable series of surprises. TRAVELER WINTER 2016 3
