As part of the ‘greener’ Singapore drive, we will use the extensive public transportation system, with short walks between attractions. This guided tour visits three landmarks that signify Singapore’s sustainable path.
First is the Singapore City Gallery, a creative space that showcases the island’s dramatic transformation over the past 50 years. Forty interactive exhibits detail planning quandaries and inventive solutions to these challenges.
Next, is the Marina Barrage, a 350-metre wide dam at the confluence of five rivers to obstruct seawater and transform the downtown into the world’s largest urban reservoir. Besides water storage, this provides leisure opportunities. The Sustainable Singapore Gallery gives an overview of the dam.
A champion for Singapore’s aim to contribute to a better planet, Gardens by the Bay sets an example through a myriad of advances. Living plants in the Super-Trees and extensive flora in the park help offset carbon emissions. Some of the trees also collect rainwater that feeds back to vegetation in the park. Our fascinating eco-tour will transform your view of this metropolis.
