Gardens of Singapore 2019

Join Kim Woods Rabbidge in cosmopolitan Singapore to celebrate the tropics.  A place where heritage, plus new, internationally acclaimed gardens are revered.  Few countries in the 21st Century have put so many resources into gardens, generating opportunities and prosperity for residents, and horticultural extravaganzas for visitors from near and far.  This 'City in a Garden' showcases the most innovative contemporary practices in the futuristic Gardens by the Bay.  Giant tree-like towers generate solar power used for garden maintenance and for the spectacular evening light show.  Marvel at vast displays of exquisite orchids; and explore lush trails connecting Singaporeans’ loved natural parks and urban precincts.  Foodies and collectors will love the buzz of markets.  Take a reflective moment at historic sites important to Australia.  Retreat to your 5-star Hotel at day’s end.
