Gardens by the Bay admission tickets include access to the two cooled conservatories (the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome), plus the otherwise-free outdoor gardens, which consist of the Supertree Grove, the Sun Pavilion, the Heritage Gardens, the World of Plants, and Dragonfly and Kingfisher lakes. Visit on a Singapore city tour, by day or night. For city views, head to the park’s fee-based OCBC Skyway, a circular walkway amid the Supertree canopy.
