Singapore by William Warren

Book Description

Although best known as a sprawling metropolis, most visitors to Singapore marvel at the greenness of it all. Wide boulevards shaded by venerable Rain Trees, interconnecting parks displaying a huge variety of tropical plants, roadside plantings in every shade of green, red and yellow, and great expanses of junglescape alongside the office skyscrapers and apartment blocks. It is truly a garden city, in all senses of the word. In this travel pictorial, the authors showcase many of the Lion City's green spaces, be they the Botanical Gardens and national parks, or plantings of bougainvillea tumbling down the crash barriers on the super highways. Orchard Road, the world renowned Zoological Gardens, the ground breaking Mandai Orchid Gardens, and many more, are portrayed, along with other lesser known parks and private and hotel gardens. Sumptuous full colour photographs by Luca Invernizzi Tettoni and texts by botanical expert William Warren literally take one down the garden path on a discovery tour of Singapore's cityscapes, landscapes, hardscapes and few remaining "wild scapes."
