Gardens by the Bay

Have you ever visit the new Singapore iconic super groovy trees? This is my first ever visit to Gardens by the Bay to check out these gigantic super groovy trees.
Super gigantic super groovy trees in Gardens by the Bay, rite?
Here is a shot of us before we start go up the super groovy trees behind us. It's so freaking hot sorry for the unhidden umbrella from this photo..

The Super trees are AWESOME! They are 25 to 50 metres, 16 storeys high, with large canopies that provide shade in the daytime. 
I can't help but be awestruck by the presence of these giant structures. This is the tallest, 50 metres tree that has a Supertree-top Bistro that provides 360 degrees view of the garden
Two of the 25-meter Supertrees are connected by a canopy walk known as the "OCBC Skyway"
Spot the tiny humans on top of the walkway behind boyfie?  We are going up there now!
You can go up the OCBC Skyway via the elevator inside the trees for S$5/person. The best time to go is before the sun is about to set so its not so freaking hot.

Spot me walking on the skyway? Actually I was sooo..freaking scared tht I keep pinching Rin's arm that she got blueblack after tht..haha!
If you have height phobia like me, you really need to brave up before start to venture on the OCBC Skyway. As you venture out to the middle of the walkway, you will start to feel the movement of the path, swaying gently… needless to say, I freaked out hoping to go back..but I got no choice but to brave up and continue ahead.

While walking on the skyway, on one side you could see Marina Bay Sands and another side of it is the garden view of more groovy supertrees view.

From top of the skyway, you can also take a shot of the cupid angel too. Saw the white angel there?
A shot of Rin with her signature smile : wan to smile but dun wan to
If this is your first visit here, the entrance to the skyway is worth a visit!

How to get here?
Take the Circle Line MRT. You have to go down at BAY FRONT MRT Station (CE1) and take Exit B. Follow the underground link way and you'll exit near the Dragonfly Bridge into Gardens by the Bay.
GARDENS BY THE BAY is directly across Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre. You just have to walk across the Lion Bridge that connects to the Dragonfly Bridge.
If you want to explore the gardens more, I will recommend you to pay for the Garden Cruiser (S$5), which is a golf cart-like mini bus that takes you around and let you hop off at the Visitor Information Centre where you can just walk to the Supertrees area. It has audio guide that explains on the different heritage gardens and attractions, explaining their significance to the colonial heritage of Singapore.
