It’s no secret that there are many tall buildings in Singapore, the smallest country in Southeast Asia in terms of land area. Due to the limited space, the city-state builds vertically.
This doesn’t mean though that Singapore is only about skyscrapers. Despite its small size, Singapore strives to make sure that it has ample space for greenery.
Some of the green areas in the country are the various town parks, the Chinese Garden and the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
What’s impressive is that the greenery and the concrete jungle don’t really compete for precious space. They actually complement each other: the greenery softens the look of concrete, while the buildings serve as a reminder that Singapore is a prosperous nation.
The greenery has an additional function. Trees help lower the sizzling temperatures in Singapore, which sits almost on the equator.
