Have you visited the beautiful Gardens By The Bay in Singapore? I had been visiting and covering Gardens By The Bay in Singapore before she was officially opened, during her official opening and over the time Gardens By The Bay had grown and expanded in the subsequent phases such as the Children’s Garden and Sun Pavilion. Over the past few years, I had seen Gardens By The Bay expanding their events, activities and facilities to constantly attract more local and international visitors to Gardens By The Bay.

As much as I walked and explored a lot around Gardens By The Bay, in my birding photography adventure. There is still a part of Gardens By The Bay that I still haven’t explore and discover about. There is a big list of many different types of flora and fauna at Gardens By The Bay and I can never remember all of their names! On top of that, there are also more flora and fauna that I still haven’t explore yet! When you visit Gardens By The Bay, do you face a challenge to identify the plants, trees, flowers etc?
