My cousins made a trip down from Malaysia to visit us and so we decided to bring them to the newest tourist attraction in Singapore – Gardens by the Bay.
When we reached at 6pm, the weather was perfect. We enjoyed the cool of the evening walking even in the outdoors.
With our cameras ready, we snapped, snapped away at the Supertrees for almost 15 minutes before moving on!
Do you know? Over 162,900 plants comprising more than 200 species and varieties of bromeliads, orchids, ferns and tropical flowering climbers are planted on the Supertrees!
Knowing that we have limited time on hand, we decided to only purchase tickets to 1 dome, the supposedly nicer dome – Cloud Forest. And so we skipped the Flower Dome, OCBC Skyway and Garden Cruiser.
It costs $12 per conservatory and $20 if you visit both conservatories for the locals. For foreigners, it costs $28 for both conservatories only.

Upon entering the dome, a cold breeze welcomed us. The air-conditioned dome was supposed to be 23-25 deg celsius cool but this first part was exceptionally cold because of the waterfall.

Here are some of the pictures taken along the route in the Cloud Forest Dome.

We finally completed our journey in the Cloud Dome in about 1.5 hours. The benefits of coming in the evening are the cooler weather and the beautiful lighting. However, as it was dark and the dome was not brightly lit, we could not enjoy the colours of the flowers and surroundings.
And now, back to the outdoors to take pictures of the lighted up Supertrees in the night. It was quite a breathtaking view to behold. We stayed till 8.45pm for the Lights Show.
After this long walk, our tummies were churning and we headed down to Xin Wang Cafe for desserts and drinks!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and thanks for reading!
