Supertree Grove

 

The Supertree Grove has the massive artificial trees which are up to 25 meters high, connected by a 128 meter sky walk. These artificial trees are not just amazing to see they have a functional use as part of the air-conditioning units to extra moisture from the Singapore air to circulate in the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. At the top of the tallest tree is a restaurant with great views over to Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore skyline. At night time these massive trees are lit up with a very impressive light show.
