Gardens by the Bay

Self-described as an “urban nature park,” Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay are exactly what you’d expect from the already high tech city. We’re talking The Jetsons-level futuristic vibes here with “supertrees” — giant electronic trees — that illuminate with deep purples and blues after the sun goes down. A smattering of oooh and ahhh-worthy light displays across the park make it whimsically enticing, to say the least. And for something completely different, don’t forget to hop over to the city’s famous hawker stalls.

The Gardens By The Bay is an expansive natural park in the beautiful country of Singapore. The park features otherworldly glowing towers that loom in mystical shades of neon lilac amongst the lush natural surroundings.

Gardens by the Bay, an urban park in Marina Bay, features the OCBC Skyway: an aerial, 420-foot walkway 72 feet above the ground that is suspended by “supertrees.” These massive structures of steel, concrete, and live plants soar as high as 16 stories. The supertrees’ massive canopies provide shade by day, significant purple light at night, and the perfect perch for sweeping city views.
