On our first day we went to the fairly new Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay. They are 25-50 metres tall, there are 12 of them and at night they are lit up with all different coloured lights. Inside one of them is a fantastic garden display. You can go up to different heights to see all the different succulents, ferns and orchids growing on the 'trunk' of the tree.
At the base of the tree there were all different types of gardens eg desert, tropical etc. It was amazing how they could get them to grow inside, all together.
We were really glad that we saw the supertrees on our first day, because I came down with a stomach virus and couldn't go anywhere for a few days (seems we were not safe from lurgies).
The next stop was Dubai, because it meant no flight was longer than 8 hours. We stayed at a fabulous hotel not far from the airport. We had an amazing room high up, so the views were amazing.

In the hotel the guests were treated like royalty and we couldn't have faulted the service.
We didn't do a lot while we there, as it was only a few nights and I was still not feeling good, but we would like to go back again some day.
