Where nature and man-made structures combine in a good way
Singapore's Gardens by the Bay have plenty to offer but it is the Supertrees that get most heads turning.


Vertical gardens seem to be all the rage in courtyards, backyards and patios these days but these are vertical gardens gone mad.

There are 18 Supertress, 12 in the Supertree Grove and three each in the Golden and Silver Gardens- which are all parts of Gardens by the Bay.

The best thing about the Supertrees, some of which are up to 16 storeys high, is that it doesn't cost a thing to check them out.

It will cost you if you want to explore the trees from above though but not that much, visitors can stroll the OCBC Skyway for $5 ($3 for children).

The skyway is a 128-metre long walkway, which is 22-metres off the ground.

It connects two Supertrees at the Supertree Grove, and provides amazing views of the Gardens and the surrounding area.

For those looking for an option for sky-high dining, the Supertree-top bistro offers a place to eat 50 metres up.

At night the trees come to life in a light and sound show known as Garden Rhapsody.

While some take in the view from up on the skyway, I enjoyed laying back on a section of grass and enjoying the theatrics from below.

Visitors checking out the Supertrees have a number of other attractions they can also see at Gardens by the Bay.

These include the Heritage Gardens which are made up of four themed gardens that tell the story of Singapore's history and culture, the Cloud Forrest- a 35-metre tall mountain covered in lush tropical vegetation, featuring the world's tallest indoor waterfall and the Flower Dome.
