For sure you have heard of Superman, Supergirl and krypto the superdog? How about the Supertrees? Yap you've read that right, Supertrees! They may look like trees from the movie Avatar or a sci Fi film but these trees do have super powers, well they generate solar power, they act as air venting ducts for the conservatories of Gardens by the Bay and, they also collect rainwater! Supertrees indeed!
The Supertrees are best visited at night, their height is around 16 storeys and they come alive with amazing display of light and sound at night. So for this post let me share my night shots of the Supertrees.
The Supertree on the right side of the picture above is their 50-metre Supertree-top bistro. A good place to have a sumptuous dinner amidst the panoramic views of the Gardens and Marina bay.
Can you see the thing that connects the Supertrees? That's the OCBC Skyway, for just $5 you can access the 128-metre long walkway with a height of 22-metres that connects two Supertrees at the Supertree Grove, and take in a different view of the Gardens.
The Supertrees are not 100% man-made, they are made of four parts: reinforcement concrete core, trunk, planting panels of the living skin, and canopy. The trunk has over 162,900 plants comprising more than 200 species and varieties of bromeliads, ferns, orchids and other tropical plants.
From the background you will see the Marina Bay Sands. The Supertree Grove is accessible to the public for free. You only need to pay $5 if you want to access the skyway.
Here's us, setting up the camera for my night shots, we arrived just in time! I hope you enjoyed the photos! Till next time! Ciao!
