Supertree Grove

Late post.

Supertree Grove is part of the Gardens by the Bay attractions. I guess you could say it's more popular compared to the conservatories.

There are 16 Supertrees in varying heights (25-50 meters). They provide shade in the day time just like real trees. And at night time they come alive with spectacular display of lights. Eleven of the Supertrees are embedded with environmentally sustainable functions like photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy.

I didn't have a proper lunch that day so I suggested to hubby and our friends to have light snacks at Indochine, the restaurant/bar on top of the tallest Supertree.

They gave us a table outside but it was hot and I was getting dizzy with the open space so I requested if we could go in.

Cheers! We had Singapore sling, french fries with truffle and some nuts (click here nutcrackers wholesale) while enjoying the view of the Marina Bay area.

When we left Gardens by the Bay, the Supertrees were just starting to light up.

Too bad we weren't able to see the display of lights in its full glory. We were hurrying up to meet another friend for our dessert buffet appointment at The Chocolate Bar at Marina Bay Sands.
