Then there was the Light & Sound Show......


What a great way to spend an evening.

The lights were wonderful.

We walked through the Marina Sands Hotel on the way to the MRT station - probably the only time I'll get near this place.

Chinese Gardens


This was one of a number of specialized gardens - we explored this one - the rest will have to wait for another visit.

You're invited to rub these plaques - just for you Sue D.

View through one of the moon windows.

Skywalk


Then there's the Skywalk - just to give you another perspective of the gardens.

Close & personal with the super trees.

The Cloud Dome


Man made waterfall was pretty impressive.

These were made of leggo!

Bromeliads everywhere - HofM was in heaven!  So many varieties,


They turned on the misters - so we had the cloud! That's the walkway through the cloud dome - it's up pretty high & was great to walk around.

In to the Flower Dome


There are 2 Domes - the Flower Dome & the Cloud Dome - the Flower Dome is home to all sorts of plants from cacti, succulents, trees, flowers etc etc.  It's all air-conditioned too - they have their own eco-system going so it's entirely self-sufficient.

The Dome!

They have different themed displays - this one was finishing - Nursery Rhymes - it was finished & a new one was being done.

Lupins - HofM informed me.

Amazing sculptures everywhere.

Ancient olive trees that must have been brought in & replanted - can you see why it took us so long to look around.

Carvings everywhere.
