Gardens by the Bay

Took advantage of the long weekend to go visit a part of Gardens by the Bay.  The Man and I, we aren’t quite the adventurous sort in our home country.  In fact, we are rather lazy preferring to head to familiar places.  But going to visit the Gardens has been one of the things I had wanted to do, so to kill two birds with one stone, we decided to check out the gardens for a bit before going for an early dinner over at Indochine Supertree-top bistro – a new establishment by the Indochine Group.

Looked like everyone had the same idea of checking out the Gardens for the parking was full when we arrived.  zzz… parked a little further down and ended up breaking into a mild sweat when we headed towards the Supertree Grove – the metallic looking trees – at the Garden.

I didn’t quite do the math but researched and found out that there are a total of eighteen of these unique trees of up to 16 storeys in height found all around the Gardens – twelve at the Supertree Grove, while the remaining six are placed in clusters of threes at the Golden and Silver Gardens.

Of course, the highlight is to take a stroll along the OCBC Skyway, a 128-metre long walkway that connects the two 25-metre Supertrees at the Supertree Grove, and take in a different view of the Gardens.  But we were contented just hanging out and chilling out at the 50-metre Supertree-top bistro which offered the same panoramic views of the Gardens as well as the surrounding Marina Bay area.
