Gardens by the Bay Part (I) – OCBC Skyway and Supertree Grove
OCBC Skyway and Supertree Grove Introduction
Our first visit destination in Singapore is none other than the Gardens by the Bay, rated as the World’s Second best Garden to visit right after Keukenhof in Amsterdam. Out of the 18 Supertrees in Gardens by the Bay, 12 of them can be found here at Supertree Grove, with the tallest one measuring up to 16 storeys in height.
What’s more, get an up-close look at the technical marvels of the Gardens’ futuristic attraction by strolling along OCBC Skyway, which connects 2 of these towering Supertrees. This 128-meter long aerial walkway is an experience not to be missed, giving visitors glorious photo-taking opportunities to capture the scenic beauty of the surrounding flora.
*Do note that the admission to Supertree Grove is absolutely FREE while access to OCBC Skyway would require some additional fees (refer bottom for price rate).
Supertree Groves Facts
Measuring between 25 and 50 meters tall, Gardens by the Bay’s Supertrees are designed with large canopies that provide shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of lights and sounds at night. Stand in awe amidst these iconic giants, or stroll along the 22-meter-high OCBC Skyway and enjoy panoramic vistas of the Gardens and the Marina Bay skyline.
Solar panels are fixed to the top of some of the Supertrees, capturing solar energy that is converted to electricity that supplements the energy required to light up the Supertrees at night – it is environmentally friendly and trusts me, you gotta see the astounding night view at Supertree Groves to earn the maximum value of visiting Gardens of the bay! 😉
*You can even enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Gardens from the OCBC Skyway and revel in a romantic night under the stars at Supertree Grove at 7.45pm and 6.45pm every night.

Singapore weather might be too hot which leads you to be lazy to walk? Fret not (i can feel you 100%), heading over to Golden Garden and take a 25-minutes leisurely ride around the outdoor gardens with a garden cruiser (basically covers each and every outdoor theme garden) while listening to an informative commentary.
