Jules #198 - Gardens by the Bay

 Here's Jules and we have just arrived at the entrance of Gardens by the Bay. Upon arrival, you will notice huge tree like structures opening up like umbrellas in an inverted way. These are called the Supertrees. They are actually the "chimneys" of a sustainable project that is happening in the Gardens.

Quote from the website:
Eleven of the Supertrees are embedded with environmentally sustainable functions. Some have photovoltaic cells on their canopies to harvest solar energy for lighting up the Supertrees., while others are integrated with the Conservatories and serve as air exhaust receptacles.

The weather was quite humid and it looked like it was going to rain big time! But we still carried on our little visit to the Gardens. Why do i say little? In fact the garden is actually quite big but many of the attractions requires a little entrance fee to visit such as the Cloud Forest, Supertree Skyway etc...
So we just mainly walked on the periphery of the gardens and enjoy the beautiful city skyline.

I highly recommend coming here to walk around. Lots of space and greenery. Coming here can be quite beneficial to your get to breathe in the fresh air and walking is a light form of exercise. There are some cafes here and Cafe Crema and Bakerzin to fill your stomachs when you are hungry. There's also chinese restaurants too if you want a heavier lunch. 
If morning is too early for you,  try coming here in the late evenings as I heard the Gardens are beautifully lit at night too.

In the end, it did eventually rain and we made our way to Vivocity for lunch!
