Supertree Grove – Singapore
Welcome to the Singapore Supertree Grove where you’ll be wandering beneath innovative man-made structures designed to blend the modern and natural world together.
It’s tropical, a little crazy and oh so photogenic.
If you’ve already read my guide to the best photography locations in Singapore, this gem no doubt stood out as somewhere you need to visit and I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed! For photographers there’s opportunities popping up everywhere from the mighty structures themselves right down to the tiny features of bromeliads, orchids and flowering tropical plants.
Over 158,000 plants await your lens as they cling to the sides of the supertrees, creating a lush landscape that contrasts in photos against the skyline of Singapore. A trip to the Supertree Grove isn’t complete without seeing these mighty fairytale trees in the evening when the lights illuminate the landscape and dance to music…it’s all kinds of wonderful!
Photo Spots in Singapore Supertree Grove
– Right underneath! Get right below and look up to capture these impressive beauties and enhance their bedazzling size. If you’ve got a wide-angle lens, point upward to compose their shapes, the giant (insert plant name) and sky above.
– From across the pond. Offering a chance to photograph the Supertrees like an odd looking forest in the distance, take a walk from the MRT station along the lake for number of great viewpoints!
– Marina Barrage provides the chance to photograph Singapore’s skyline and include the Supertree Grove with the luxurious Marina Bay Sands as a backdrop. My tip is to visit Marina Barrage at sunset, one of the best places to take photos in Singapore then wander down to the Supertree Grove and see magic once the lights are turned on.
-Perched high amongst the supertree grove you’ll find a 128m long walkway that connects the trees together at 22m above the ground. The OCBC Walkway provides an alternate perspective of the supertrees and while it requires an additional ticket, if you’ve got the time, it’s worth while to have a wander!
Getting to the Supertree Grove
If you’re staying at the luxe Marina Bay Sands hotel it’s just across the park and you may even have a great view from your room! Otherwise, if you’re staying elsewhere in Singapore, I’d highly recommend jumping on the MRT and getting off at the Marina Bay MRT station.
Alternatively, if you’re planning on seeing a bunch of sights in Singapore, you can also grab a ‘Hop On, Hop Off’ pass before you arrive and take advantage of this bus that will drop you in all the best places around Singapore.
