The SuperTree Grove at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore

The SuperTree Grove at Gardens by the Bay is one of a kind tourist attraction in Singapore. Such a concept is, perhaps, a pioneer in the world on how we see trees. It’s not just a man-made tree but there’s more to that.

There are 18 super trees in the garden. Standing at 25-20 meters, they look like strange trees when they’re lit up at night.

Look at those canopies! They look like an inverted umbrella but they collect solar power for electricity. Some of them function as exhaust tubes.

A few of the Supertrees are connected to each other by a walkway. The views from up there, I was told, are breathtaking.

As a friend told me:

“It wasn’t like walking, but floating above the gardens.”

So, if you like drinking your Chardonnay, champagne, or sparkling wine with stunning views of the garden and the city – this is your place to be at sunset or early evening.

Where to Stay in Singapore

Singapore is an expensive country. Fortunately for me, I have a friend who offered one of the rooms in her apartment. Since staying in hotels are expensive, the best option for budget travelers is, of course, hostels. You can book them via BookingExpediaHostelWorld, and TripAdvisor
