Rising into the sky like a machine out of War of the Worlds, you’d be mistaken for thinking that Gardens by the Bay were part of some kind of alien invasion! Fear not, for although they are very different in their appearance from your average tree or garden, rest assured that they are trees, and it is a garden.

Are you heading to Singapore? Then what should you know about the Gardens by the Bay before you visit? We take a look at the facts and give you the inside track on the best options.
