Singapore Architectural Intricacies

What goes into the consideration when designing a structure in Singapore? Visit historical monument and watch how it has been transformed into the biggest museum in Singapore. Singapore is known to be a "Garden City", but the notion is now changing to become a "City in a Garden". Visit the magnificent Gardens by the Bay which has transformed the landscape of the Singapore's Marina skyline.

Explore the Singapore River by cruising on a battery operated bumboat and ply along the old and the new buildings lining this waterway. Imagine how once upon a time, this small little fishing village developed into our modern cosmopolitan city we see today.

Singapore is in fact a treasure trove of Feng shui gems. These architectural jewels are scattered island wide, some of which have become world renowned. The proposed Feng shui discovery tour is an educational, cultural yet entertaining journey for all to experience modern day Feng shui. It is ideal for enthusiasts at all levels and promises to be an eye-opener.

National Gallery Singapore is a new visual arts institution which oversees the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore and Southeast Asia. The Gallery is housed in two national monuments—former Supreme Court and City Hall—that have been beautifully restored and transformed into this exciting venue in the heart of the Civic District.

For a reprieve from the tropical heat and a taste of the Mediterranean climate, head to the cooled conservatory of one of Singapore’s newest attractions – the Flower Dome and Cloud Dome of The Gardens by the Bay. The vertical gardens are 25 to 50-metres tall and have large canopies that provide shade for visitors. Stand in awe of the amazing Supertrees and admire its intricate and detailed designs despite its gigantic size.
