Gardens by the Bay

There is such a vast variety of places and things to do here in Singapore.  One of my favorite unique places here is Gardens by the Bay, which is a large nature park that combines city views with natural wonders.  Gardens by the Bay includes several outdoor gardens, two indoor conservatories, and the famous Supertrees.  This past weekend, my aunt, uncle, cousins, and I spent the afternoon and evening enjoying the gardens at Christmastime.  These photos show a brief snapshot into this cool place!

The Supertrees are huge, man-made “trees” that light up at night.  Each night there are two Garden Rhapsody shows, where the Suptertrees are programmed to music and light up to the beat.  I’ve seen the show twice – once when the theme was musical theatre hits, and once when the show was Christmas themed.  It is absolutely magical!

Inside the Cloud Forest.  This conservatory includes a mountain with the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.  It is filled with vegetation and many rare plants.  The focus on this conservatory is awareness for the disappearing yet essential cloud forest ecosystem.  While there, we saw a video showing the dangers of climate change and what can be done to lessen the damage and danger.
