The Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) in the Central Region of Singapore, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden (in Marina South), Bay East Garden (in Marina East) and Bay Central Garden (in Downtown Core and Kallang). The largest of the gardens is the Bay South Garden at 54 hectares (130 acres) designed by Grant Associates. Its Flower Dome is the largest glass greenhouse in the world.
Gardens by the Bay was part of the nation's plans to transform its "Garden City" to a "City in a Garden", with the aim of raising the quality of life by enhancing greenery and flora in the city. First announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at Singapore's National Day Rally in 2005, Gardens by the Bay was intended to be Singapore's premier urban outdoor recreation space and a national icon.

Indoor waterfalls. It's sort of misty and gets cold so carry a sweater. The winding down is an enjoyable time with peaks of good views. You almost feel you are in a cloud forest.

This place is mesmerizing (like all of Singapore if I'm being honest). Greeted by a 6 story waterfall, you're able to wind your way up and down the dome, with spectacular views. I do recommend reading all the info panels along the way! Very interesting stuff. But my favourite part was undoubtedly when you get to the bottom. Underneath the cloud forest they have a great area dedicated to promoting sustainable behaviours and bringing to light the impact of human behaviours on the earth. Videos and art demonstrations. I was absolutely geeking out at the video showing how recycled materials can be turned into enough electricity to power the city. Also important to note - if you only have time / money for 1 of the 2 domes, I would recommend this one over the flower dome.

You need to spend a minimum of 45 mins in this place as it's just amazing. Combine it with the Flower Dome for a superb Singapore experience. I went at night which gave if a really amazing atmosphere as there is lighting. However, the lighting is not strong enough to light everything so going at sunset would allow you the best of both worlds.

I totally love the cloud forest. Misty and cooling the waterfall is so fascinating and mesmerizing to watch. Firstly it’s wheelchair friendly! There’s a top roof pond with seasonal decoration, you can walk the ramp down and enjoy the glass view design of the cloud forest dome. Wheelchair is able to go down the ramp and also lift is available throughout the building. Each level have a unique gallery which is interesting. Love the coldness here.

Beautiful indoor garden. If you are looking for something nice to do, and/or something that will get you out of the heat, then go walk through the Cloud Forest. It's beautiful and refreshing after sweating outside. It's also walkable from the Sands SkyPark Observation Deck.

The most impressive botanic experience I have ever come across. The bio-dome contains some of the world most exotic faunas under one roof. As you navigate the man-made forest, the tour takes you on an ecological journey across diverse climates and different species of plants and flowers that thrive under those conditions. At the same time, the exhibit raise a lot of awareness about climate change and really make you appreciate the biodiversity of our planet.

Amazing experience if you enter the Cloud Forest, a mysterious world veiled in mist. Take in breath-taking mountain views surrounded by diverse vegetation and hidden floral gems. And learn about rare plants and their fast-disappearing environment. Daily open from : 9.00am - 9.00pm. Last ticket sale: 8.00pm Last admission: 8.30pm

This is an absolute example of Engineering! I've never seen such flourished plants and flowers and trees. How much people love it to maintain it like that and manage it like that. It's absolutely breathtaking. They have created an artificial waterfall which doesn't feel artificial at all and you're allowed to go to top to see how they have allowed water to fall from such a height and you'll be amazed to see the engineering again. Water feels like a canal flowing at the slowest speed possible but as soon at it drops over the cliffs...I don't know what happens but it turns out to giant waterfall. Engineering it is. You can walk around the cloud Forrest and as name suggest...you'll be able to see artificial coulds at some levels. Best part is engineering engineering and engineering. This is a must visit place.

It's like stepping into Borneo. The display of nature is beautiful and the walk through is peaceful despite the amount of people. The garden is very well kept and I enjoyed my time in there. I recommend a slow walk through, take your time at each corner as its easy to miss some of the displays.

The process of buying the ticket and entering the attraction was smooth and easy. It is cheaper for local citizens to purchase the tickets. Currently there is a 15% promotion for OCBC card holders. Please check with the counter before purchase. Overall the experience was great and the air is really fresh. Will recommend to go visit if you are here in Singapore.
Graham Taylor | May 17, 2018
Amazingly it was cool inside on a bright sunny day that was 32 degrees outside. The plants were awesome and set in an environment that took my breath away. If you don't like heights avoid the sky walk but it is a great way to see the displays. The building is an impressive envelope to the planting great value for money.

It's fun and amazing experience. You can see and learn how cloud forest works. From the bottom of giant waterfall, you will take on the lift to go to the top of it. After that, you can see very nice pond with all the flowers and plants surround it. After that, you can slowly descend with hanging bridges. Between greatness and wonderfull, it's an experience that would ever amaze everyone.

Absolutely spectacular. You'll see the world's tallest indoor waterfall at 35 meters from many different view points along the mist-filled cloud walk and treetop walk. Entrance to Gardens by the Bay is for free but you need to purchase tickets for both domes. Totally worth the money. Come here at the hottest time of the day as there's air conditioner inside the dome.

One thing. IT’S HUUUUGE. You might wanna have enough time in your pocket to explore it properly. There’s waterfall inside, flowers, lush green and it’s cold. It’s great and some people might tell you not to visit it. Do not listen to them and do not miss flower dome and cloud forest. It’s spectacular and it’s amazing how they maintain all these plants and everything else that is inside. It’s beautiful and must visit. There’s a theatre named cloud forest theatre where you can watch a video aimed at environment conservation.

This amazing feat of architecture and engineering is what stands out immediately when you walk into Gardens by the Bay. You'll immediately be able to see two large structures, one for the Cloud Forest and one for the Flower Dome. Even from the outside, this place looks amazing. This climate-controlled structure houses an extremely diverse range of plants that naturally occur in a very rare subgroup of forests (cloud forests) which you normally rarely see unless you're in a cloud forest yourself. The sheer number of different kinds of plants is surprising considering the space they have for this place. There is even an indoor waterfall as well as mist/fog machines intended to imitate the conditions of a cloud forest. There are also regular events (such as orchid exhibitions etc.) that changes from time to time so this place is definitely worth a revisit every once in awhile. All in all, the Cloud Forest is a place you absolutely CANNOT miss when you visit Singapore (Don't let the need for a ticket deter you!).

After visiting the Flower Dome, it is a must to visit also the Cloud Forest. It is such an amazing journey and experience inside the Cloud Forest; you get to understand how the nature works in such a controlled environment. I feel like I was in another science lesson but in such a big scale. I absolutely love the place and can't wait to travel back to Singapore another time and re-visit this place again.
