Gardens by the Bay - The Flower Dome

The Flower Dome is one of the two green houses in the Gardens by the Bay.  It is one of the crown jewels in the center of Singapore.

The structure of the Flower Dome itself is a construction achievement.  According to the official website, the Flower Dome is the world's largest columnless greenhouse.  Looking out from the green house, you enjoy the beautiful view of Singapore's richest district, the financial center.  Here you can see the Singapore Flyer, the skyscrappers, the colonial district.  The Gardens by the Bay looks like an oasis in the heart of this concrete jungle.  

The Flower Dome is divided into many sections, featuring plants from the Mediterranean basin, Australia, South Africa, Chile and California of USA.

A picture is worth a thousand words.  Let me go straight to show you what are waiting for you upon your visit to the Flower Dome.

All these photos were straight from my Olympus E-PM1 camera without any editing, except re-sizing.  Some photos were under-exposed due to a change in weather, however, I still hope that you enjoy the photos and the beauty of nature.
