Gardens by the Bay
Despite being just 710 kilometers square, Singapore has managed to carve out green spaces to give its 5.3 million residents some breathing room. One of the newest, this giant park boasts manmade, organic, night-lit Supertrees, and cooled conservatories.
Pasir Ris Park
On the city's northeastern tip, this long, skinny park dubbed "beach bolt-rope" in Malay has pony rides and a boardwalk-lined mangrove forest. Climb the jungle gyms, camp out... Just don't feed the monkeys!
Reservoirs serve as important freshwater supplies for the city-state—but also prime spots for fresh-air recreation and sports, such as kayaking.
Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park
Smack in the city's beating heart, lush Bishan Park is bisected by the Kallang River, a perfect emblem of Singapore's modern evolution: It's a former concrete canal that's been redeveloped into a naturalized river.
