on my recent trip in February to Singapore, I was wondering what differences I would see since my last visit in 2013!
One of the most amazing sights /Changes that I wanted to visit was the Gardens by the Bay. Most significantly the Super-trees! I was not disappointed. I even took the sky walk (the same height as the Arc de Triomphe in Paris), between the trees which gave me the most amazing feeling of freedom and wellness.
The man-made mechanical forest consists of 18 supertrees that act as vertical gardens, generating solar power, acting as air venting ducts for nearby conservatories, and collecting rainwater. To generate electricity, 11 of the supertrees are fitted with solar photovoltaic systems that convert sunlight into energy, which provides lighting and aids water technology within the conservatories below.
Varying in height between 25 and 50 meters, each supertree features tropical flowers and various ferns climbing across its steel framework. The large canopies also operate as temperature moderators, absorbing and dispersing heat, as well as providing shelter from the hot temperatures of Singapore’s climate to visitors walking beneath.
