Chinese and Japanese Gardens are two incredibly fabulous attractions, located in Singapore, on two islands. They are united by a picturesque bridge with just as a charming name - the Bridge of Double Beauty.

Harmony of Architecture and Nature

The Chinese Garden in Singapore was created in the Northern Imperial Style, which refers to the period of the Song dynasty reign. The main peculiarity of the Chinese Garden is in its ideal harmony between luxurious architectural monuments and the environment. Bridges play a key role in the landscape design of China. They symbolize different stages of civilization development.

The White Rainbow Bridge in the Chinese Garden

The White Rainbow Bridge in the Chinese Garden is an exact copy of the bridge located in the Beijing Summer Palace. It’s considerably smaller than the original, but this fact doesn’t influence its majesty and general impression it has on parks’ guests. Perhaps one of the prime elements of the Chinese Garden is its architecture. However, the constructions don’t dominate the landscape. Designers work rigorously on their creations to make sure they blend into the surroundings perfectly.
