NHG Family Day 2013 x OCBC Skyway at Gardens By The Bay

It's the annual NHG Family Day, and i managed to get a pair of tickets to their carnival held at Gardens By The Bay. We have never been there before and have no plan of visiting the place as it wasn't really convenient to go, so thanks to NHG. :)

I never knew the place was this huge.. walking to the Meadow (where the family day carnival located) from the main entrance is quite a distance.. Plus, it was drizzling that day.. causing the ground to be damp and muddy..=(

Along the way, there were various outdoor attractions and viewing galleries.. One of it that caught our eyes is the Eight Amazing Animals from Southeast Asia. Read more here.

Most of the activities and game booths were more for kids,
 So we walk back out of the Meadow and explore the rest of Gardens By the Bay..
 Passing by aquarium,
A walk in the stunning Supertree Grove,
Understanding how temperature were controlled..

There is a sky bridge.. and we were wondering how people got up there..
So we walked around the area.. and saw the entrance with people waiting in the queue to go up.
Entrance tickets can be bought at the opposite booth.

The view from above (22m from the ground) is amazingly beautiful. Took some pictures..

Too bad, we didn't manage to go into the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest..
