Flower Dome and the neighbouring Cloud Forest - If this doen’t impress you nothing will.


After travelling around the world for so many years one becomes a bit blasé about what you see and it gets harder and harder to be impressed. But, boy, were we impressed with this exhibit.

I remember visiting Singapore when there was nothing where the Garden by the Bay complex, the Flower Dome and the neighbouring Cloud Forest, the Super trees etc are located now.

And what a marvellous place to stroll it is. You can spend hours in a very relaxing way, enjoying looking at colourful flowers & exotic plants. And it’s as is with everything else in Singapore: clean, safe and well organised. It’s attractions like this that make Singapore one of our favourite stopover cities in the world when we’re travelling.

Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land in Singapore. Over 250 thousand rare plants in huge domed conservatories.

It's a billion-dollar techno-garden theme park, absolutely stunning but with two stand-out highlights: the signature Supertree Grove – a collection of giant cyborg trees – and the Cloud Forest. As soon as you step inside and see the towering waterfall in front of you it is impossible not to be impressed. And I didn’t even mention yet the walkway high up at tree top level! It doesn’t get any better than the Flower Dome and the Rainforest when it comes to conservatories. Singapore upped the ante again and proved this city truly is in a class of its own. The Cloud Forest is a man-made mountain inside a climate-controlled dome. Enjoy the sight of the world's tallest indoor waterfall, which rains down water and mist from 35 m (115 ft) above the floor.
