{singapore} super grove garden

November 21, 2015

The absolute highlight of my time in Singapore (and the reason I’m ending this Singapore series with this post) was my visit to the amazing Gardens by the Bay. I had seen beautiful pictures of this place on Buzzfeed, Instagram, and Facebook even before getting to Singapore and I knew that this was going to be on my to-do list. I planned to get to the Gardens in the late afternoon so I would have plenty of time to walk around and see the various attractions, but then not have to wait too long to get a chance to see the most amazing Supertrees lit up at night as well. While I didn’t get a chance to go into the conservatories, mainly because I chose not to (due to price and the fact that I’ve seen exhibits similar), just walking along the various free paths, gardens, and ponds was absolutely breathtaking. I just loved how the Gardens incorporate culture and history into their story.

Of course, the most amazing part though were the giant Supertrees. It was great to be able to see both the Supertree grove both during the day (home to 12 out of the 18 supertrees) and then again at night when they were all lit up. At around 9 pm, everything went dark for a few seconds before the Garden Rhapsody took over. The incredibly display of timed light and music was such a sight, especially if you got a spot to lay down under one of the supertrees and look up. It was like seeing into a supertrees universe!
