Supertree Grove Singapore!
Undoubtedly the best part of all and what most astonished us were these super futuristic trees, some vertical gardens some up to fifty meters high that give pure sensation. The vines are intertwined by the metallic arms of these giants, who imitate the behavior of a real tree thanks to its ecological system of photovoltaic cells that collect solar energy for its illumination and collecting rainwater to water the orchids, ferns and Other plants that adorn them. A real joy for the eyes.

Arriving dinner time, as the prices of the restaurants are quite high we bought for dinner a box of sushi and varied Maki in the supermarket that is inside the shopping center of Marina Bay Sands, and we took the room for the water show, light and sound that is made in the bay right in the front of the hotel, with the Singaporean skyline in the background.
