By far one of the most amazing, awe inspiring and simply magical sights of Singapore is also one of the most well known and even more impressively FREE! When across much of Asia is feels like you are made to pay for everything, including nature and public gardens it is refreshing to head to Singapore where so many of the things to do here are completely free of charge! The gardens by the bay and the famous super trees were such a highlight for us. Whether glancing up at the enormous structures by day and taking in the details and surrounding scenery or being simply blown away at night by the mesmerising scene of the trees lit up, it is just a completely other worldly experience!
By day is the details, the purple against the blue sky, the green against the backdrop of the concrete city, the sheer scale of the trees as you see people poking their heads from the very top. During the day you can see how they work, feel their presence as they tower over a hundred feet above you, a vertical garden shooting off into the sky and fanning out above you. Gardens by the Bay is alive with life and movement, you can feel the energy pulsating out of both people and plants!
At night is when the stunning become the magical, when the Gardens by the Bay is transformed into an enchanted forest of magical proportions. As the lights dance up the truck of the trees and burst like fireworks in the sky you can’t help but be awestruck. The colours and shades reminiscent of a land such a pandora of avatar. Transporting you across worlds to a location of another dimension. Laying down on the huge slabs below the trees we stayed for hours staring up at this most magnificent of sights as lights wrapped around the alien structures and sparkled like stars of a far off galaxy. Gardens by the Bay, a truly enchanting place to spend a mystical few hours in the evening.
