A Gardens by the Bay map can be a good thing to have when visiting Singapore. After all, the Gardens by the Bay area is fast becoming one of Asia’s most talked about attractions. At the very least, Singapore visitors should have a general idea about where Gardens by the Bay can be found. Thankfully, it isn’t hard to locate. You can find the main area – Bay South Garden – right downtown at Marina Bay. The address of the entrance gate is 18 Marina Gardens Drive. The rest of the Gardens by the Bay area extends eastward from Marina Bay along the waterfront.
Basically, Gardens of the Bay is set between downtown Singapore’s lofty high rises and the waters of the Singapore Strait, location of popular Sentosa Island. The East Coast Parkway toll road provides easy access to the area. For those who wish to stay within walking distance of Gardens by the Bay, there are plenty of downtown Singapore hotels that are close by. Among them is the spectacular Marina Bay Sands. From this five star hotel’s Skypark, you can actually see the main Bay South Garden area unfolding just below. Other high quality downtown hotels that are situated within close proximity of Gardens by the Bay include the Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the Conrad Centennial Singapore, the Mandarin Oriental Singapore, the Pan Pacific Singapore, and the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore.
Upon arrival at Gardens by the Bay, visitors can drop by the Visitor Center to get information on the park. If nothing else, it can be a good idea to purchase a Gardens by the Bay map that can be used for self guided tours. It is also possible to arrange guided group tours for a fee, and visitors can always interest themselves in a highly affordable ride on the Garden Cruiser. The Garden Cruiser tram takes riders on 25 minute trips around the Bay South Garden area, and informative commentary is provided along the way.
