About the Book

Two soaring conservatories, filled with cool-climate plants from around the world. An indoor mountain and waterfall, wreathed in mist. Eighteen towering Supertrees, rising as high as 16 storeys, clad with a profusion of ferns, bromeliads, orchids. More than 1.5 million plants, consisting of some 18,000 plant groups, spread over an area equivalent to 90 football fields. A haven for wildlife in the new downtown. A recreational hub for the people of Singapore. A shining beacon for travellers from all corners of the globe. A dream of perpetual springtime in the Tropics. A vision made reality. 

In just five years of operation, Gardens by the Bay has taken root, blossomed, and matured into a true Singapore icon. Illustrated with stunning photographs, The World in a Garden looks at the ingredients of its success, its array of signature programmes, and its plans for the future, while shining a spotlight on its world-class plant collection.
