This is regarded as the major shopping part of the park. There’s also New York, which is modeled after New York city, where you can get your picture taken with movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin.

Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is a massive, vibrant, revolutionary park located in the bay area of Singapore. It has supertree structures which provide a striking skywalk across the gardens. There are large greenhouses shaped like seashells to produce that icy mountain climate, including lots of trees and plants waiting to be discovered creating an atmosphere of fun for both adults and children.
The ideal place to appreciate the size of the Gardens by the Bay is atop the Marina Bay Sands, which is located opposite the park, with a space that spans across 250 acres of land that has been reclaimed on the waterfront. It is not difficult to find your way there, you can either use the walkways from the hotel and enjoy a higher view of the gardens, or you can come through the riverside promenade which is a bit longer, to get to the park close to the two domes. You don’t have to pay anything to be allowed to walk through the park; however, you’re required to pay a fee if you’re interested in going inside the climate controlled conservatories, or to take a walk in the midst of the Supertrees. Opening hours for the main park area, is between 9:00 to 21:00.
