Gardens By the Bay, II

The last time I was in Singapore, I went to Gardens By the Bay, and fell in love with the SuperTrees.  Unfortunately, one of the conservatories and the walk way between the SuperTrees was closed, and it rained the entire time I was there, so I didn’t get to see as much as I’d wanted.  I made up for that this time!

First, I had a wander around the park.

There’s a giant floating baby.  This is a sculpture called Planet, by Marc Quinn.

During the wander, I came upon a grove that had trees/shrubs in huge, amazing animal shapes:

And then, into the Cloud Forest, which was closed the first time I was here.  The first thing you see is a giant waterfall.  You then walk all the way up the building, up and behind the waterfall, to see amazing planets and trees.

Then, to my favorite part:  the SuperTrees.  There is a walkway that goes between the Trees in one of the groves, and of course I had to go walk that.

Each night, there is a SuperTree music and light show.  The theme today was StarWars.  I was on the walkway for the first part of the show, and then finished up from below.

I just cannot get enough of those SuperTrees.
