Globetrotting Diaries - Singapore Series 3 : Garden City

This Thursday let's continue My Globetrotting Diaries with the "Singapore Series" that I started sometime back.

This week explore "The City in a Garden" side of Singapore.
One might think of Singapore as a Modern Concrete Jungle, but believe me it is NOT!

With 300 Parks and 4 Nature Reserves along with rows of Trees and Greenery that line the expressways and streets, Vertical Gardens blending in the facade of high rise buildings along with Roof-Top Gardens, Singapore truly is a "Green Paradise".

Let's take a walk into this City Garden for now, later we will take a walk in the Nature Reserves and parks.There are so many pictures, but here are a few that I could shortlist.

Here are a Few of Many...
