The 101-hectare Gardens by the Bay superpark (gardensbythebay.org.sg) recreates a number of climates from all across the globe in several climate-controlled Conservatories - visitors can take a break from Singapore's unremitting humidity by entering a "flower dome" that recreates the Mediterranean climes, or get lost in the "cloud forest" that duplicates tropical mountain weather. The conservatories harbor a number of plant species exclusive to each climate.

Don't leave without ascending the Gardens by the Bay's main contribution to the Marina Bay skyline: the "supertrees" rising over 16 storeys tall, linked by a walkway suspended over seven storeys above the ground. The "supertrees" are technologically "green" marvels - covered in flowering plants, ferns, and vines, they collect solar power and rainwater for use in the complex, and they also help vent exhaust from the conservatories around them.
