Singapore has scored one heck of an Apple (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. Report store.

Shoppers at what is the tech giant's first Southeast Asia location (pictured below) were greeted on Saturday by a stunning 120 foot glass facade. The centerpiece of the store (besides all the tech gadgets) is the second floor, which feels like a modern town square. It even features trees that were specially brought in from China.

To be sure, Apple's retail chief Angela Ahrendts (who attended the opening -- see below picture) has had her hands over the fresh-looking location.

Ahrendts recently pulled the curtains back to the biggest changes to Apple stores in 15 years. The company will add conference and meeting rooms, updated video screens, and living trees to its 100 largest locations. It's also changing the name of the well-known Genius Bar to "Genius Grove." The changes mirror several undertaken at an Apple store in San Francisco last year.

Further, nearly all of Apple's 500 retail stores will start holding "educational sessions" that Apple has dubbed "Today at Apple." The classes will launch at the end of May.
