Although towering skyscrapers make up most of our cityscape today, our island is also full of lush green pockets that offer respite amidst the hustle and bustle of a modern metropolis - only if you take a closer look when you visit Singapore.
Be it our tree-lined expressways, award-winning attraction, Gardens by the Bay, or the numerous parks in and around the city, integration of the environment is a large part of our urban development.
Some of our more creative and unique architectural establishments also have greenery woven into the buildings themselves, such as PARKROYAL on Pickering hotel and School of the Arts (SOTA) - standing out as lush gems amidst their neighbours.
