Singapore authorities said the 250-acre oasis created by the Republic’s National Parks Council as part of its redevelopment programme is an example of how the park can attract ecotourism to the region. The Republic of Singapore said the project showcases "what we can do to bring the world of plants to all Singaporeans." 

The Gardens By The Bay is home to two bio-domes, the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome that combine to be the size of four football fields and showcase 220,000 plants from all over planet Earth. However, the main attraction is the 18 "supertrees" that rise between 80 to 160 feet high and have a wide variety of ferns and tropical flowers that climb its mechanical outsides. 

The trees feature photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy to power the eco-park and they also act as air exhausts for the Energy Centre and Cooled Conservatories. During the day, the trees' massive canopies provide shade for park-goers and at night they light up to create beautiful media displays that light up the sky.
