Sharing a picture of this iconic tree-like (not real trees, this time!) vertical gardens of Singapore, known famously as the ‘Gardens by the Bay‘. These vary between 25 and 50 metres in height and are designed with large canopies to provide shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of light and sound at night.
The tallest of them, seen here, measures up to 16 storeys in height! There are over 162,900 plants comprising more than 200 species and varieties of bromeliads, orchids, ferns and tropical flowering climbers planted on these Supertrees. What gives this place a unique experience is the 128-metre aerial walkway (seen in the picture below), which connects two of the Supertrees, that gives one a different view of the gardens below.
If you are visiting for the first time, make sure you do not miss the Sound and light show in the evenings, which is an absolutely unforgettable experience!
Thursday Tree love is a photo feature on Parul’s blog which is hosted on the 2nd and the 4th Thursday of each month. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her post. Let’s come together to appreciate the beauty of nature all around us.
Before you go, don’t forget to check the lovely tree posts from the previous week, here.
