The thriving city of Singapore belies its wild beginnings 270 years ago when crocodiles, tigers, leopards and boars abounded in its thick jungles and lost lagoons. But over the last 20 years, Singaporeans have completed an ambitious project to beautify the island by preserving many of its tropical trees, plants, and flowers, and even some of its exotic mango swamps. Superbly illustrated throughout, this book explores the new parks and gardens that have transformed both the look and the environment of Singapore.
