As a visitor to Singapore, my first impressions were, “wow….how green is this city!”

From the moment we stepped off the plane and into Changi airport three weeks ago, I was blown away with the sustainability developments within this small city. Singapore is reported to have the world’s highest density of greenery. With the expansion of skyrise greenery on high rise city buildings as a result of limited land capacity, Singapore is indeed a lush and vibrant palette of nature.

The beauty of the flora and fauna in this energetic city awaits to be captured…

    Your photos are wonderful and capture the essence of this post very well. 🙂

  12. From your pictures I can sense fresh air despite being in the city. It’s always fascinating when cities incorporate greenery. I’ve never been to Singapore, so to me the rainforest-like flora and fauna like you captured in your photos is quite unique.

  14. How lovely that a big city can be so green and full of colourful plant life. I particularly love the pink leaves. It’s almost a decade since I was last in Singapore. I think I’m overdue another visit! #citytripping

        Thank you for asking. I hadn’t forgotten you but it’s been a whirlwind. Yes, starting to settle now. I was happy to see you had been off adventuring again. I will aim to keep up better with your posts…
        Have a great week 🙋🏻💕💕

      • Glad to hear all is well there Di. You guys must have been busy indeed. Yes, September school holidays and we were off. It’s always great to get away at that time of year I find. Have a lovely week too and talk soon. Xx

      • Thank you Lorelle. Yes, very busy but I’m a good way.
        Oh yes, Spring time is a lovely time for a trip before the heat of summer.

  24. There are some seriously beautiful plants there. I’m not sure I could cope with rooftop gardens that high up, though. I prefer my gardens to be securely on the ground.

  25. Firstly, this is absolutely gorgeous. How would you NOT want to spend all of your time wandering through the gardens?? Secondly, it’s so eco-friendly!! I’m trying to find more plants I can grow myself but it’s difficult to find plants that I can bring in for the winter AND find a spot in my house where they get just the right amount of sunlight. I hope I can have something like the airport eventually!!! 😍😍

    • Thank you so much. I love been surrounded by all that greenery. Yes it’s difficult during winter, you will have to check out your local nurseries for some advice! Have a great Sunday Jess. Xx
