Gardens by Bay Singapore


Garden by the Bay is a park spanning 101 hectares is a key project which is located in Marina Bay. Singapore Government’s vision is transforming Singapore into a “City in a Garden”, and raises the quality of life by enhancing greenery and flora in the city. This is beautiful park comprising three waterfront gardens:   Bay Central Garden is a link between Bay South and Bay East Gardens, it stands at 37 acres with a three KM waterfront promenade which permits for scenic walks stretching from the city center to east of Singapore.

·        Bay East Garden is 79 acres in size and has a 2 KM promenade frontage that embroiders the Marina Reservoir. An interim park was developed at Bay East Garden in support of the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics. It designed as a series of large tropical leaf-shaped gardens, each with its own specific landscaping design, character and theme. There will be five water inlets aligned with the prevailing wind direction, maximizing and extending the shoreline while allowing wind and water to penetrate the site to help cool areas of activity around them. Bay East Garden will provide visitors with an unobstructed view of the city skyline. Upcoming developments of Bay East Garden will be based on the theme of water.
·        Bay South Garden is the largest of the three gardens at 130 acres and aims to showcase the best of tropical horticulture and garden artistry. The overall concept of its master plan draws inspiration from an orchid as it is representative of the tropics and of Singapore, being the country's national flower, the Vanda 'Miss Joaquim'.
The project was announced in August 2005, and primary aim was behind to Gardens by the Bay is Singapore Premier urban outdoor recreation space and a national icon. In Jan 2006, an international competition of design held, and over 70 entries submitted by 170 firms from 24 countries. Eventually Grant Associates and Gustafson Porter were awarded the master plan design for the Bay South and Bay East Gardens respectively. The Gardens by Bay has proven extremely popular for event planners, with demand so high that the park has to limit the number of events to three per week.

Marina Bay Sands in Singapore

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore, well developed by Las Vegas Sands. It is situated on 15.5 hectares of land (Gross Floor Area is 581,000 square meters). It is opened on 27 April 2010, to promote Singapore’s Skyline tourisms, and has several facilities such as hotel, convention and exhibition, theatres, entertainment venues, retailers, and restaurants. 

Marina Bay Sands has two winning proposals, first Singapore integrated resorts, and Resorts World Sentosa, which incorporates Universal Studios Theme Park. The main objective of two resorts is to meet Singapore's economic and tourism development appeal and contribution, architectural concept and design, development investment, and strengthen of the consortium and partners.

On 27 May, 2006, Las Vegas Sands (LVS) liked that the hotel towers were set back to add in attractions of infinity edge swimming pool in the skypark from the waterfront to open up expansive views of the city and the entire Marina Bay, making the skyline for Singapore's downtown more attractive and distinctive. The beautiful Marina Bay Sands hotel has three 55-story towers with 2,561 luxury rooms and suites, which is capped by the Sands SkyPark, which offers 360-degree views of Singapore's skyline.

The SkyPark is home to restaurants, gardens, a 150-metre vanishing edge and the world's largest public cantilever housing an observation deck. This architectural marvel stands at the height of 200 meters and boasts 12,400 square meters of space. To help the Skypark withstand the natural motion of the towers caused by wind, engineers designed and constructed four movement joints beneath the main pools, each possessing a unique range of motion.
The total range of motion is 19.68 inches. In addition to wind, the hotel towers are also subject to settlement in the earth over time; hence custom jack legs were built and installed to allow for future adjustment at more than 500 points beneath the pool system. This jacking system is important primarily to ensure the infinity edge of the pool continues to function properly.

The Sands Expo and Convention Centre has largest and most flexible meeting place in Asia, and biggest meeting, incentives, conference and exhibitions facility in Singapore, and the ballroom is the largest in Southeast Asia, capable of hosting up to 11,000 delegates. You can found more attraction at Marina Bay Sands of retail and restaurant, the largest luxury shopping mall in the central business district.
