Gardens by the Bay’s Super tree grove

I arrived at the most photographed place in Singapore and lucked out on two counts — it was nine in the morning before tourist buses arrived and a weekday.

The lush location throughout the park was often overlooked. It was the twenty-two metre high artificial towers with more than 160 000 plants sprouting from them that camera enthusiasts were after.

There was a steep $S46 surcharge that covered everything in the park including a shuttle bus for those who didn’t want to hike. I opted to pay $S8 to take the elevator to the top of the skyway where the view of the park, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, the Singapore Flyer and the city beyond were unbeatable. Signs indicated that there was a fifteen minute time limit during busy times. Luckily, there were no more than twenty other tourists while I swivelled my head in all directions.
