Singapore: Flower Dome and Cloud Forest


Monday, 24 April 2017

Early morning, I directly went for Merlion Park and Universal Studio to see if it’s less crowded compared to Sunday. I was completely wrong, there were so many people I could only stay for a while to take photographs, found a lunch and then came back to hotel.

The sky was cloudy. When I arrived at hotel, it was raining. It turned out to be a great thing because in the afternoon, at around 3 PM, the rain stopped. Leaving only cool and fresh atmosphere. Perfect for a stroll to Gardens By The Bay!

Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land in central Singapore, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden. The largest of the gardens is Bay South Garden at 54 hectares (130 acres).

Inside the conservatory

The one that I visited was Bay South Garden. It comprises two cooled conservatories – the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest and the most famous Supertree Grove which I saw from height the night before, Sands SkyPark. While the Gardens By The Bay itself was free, to enter the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, the ticket was $28. I bought mine only for $23 from the hotel.

Flower Dome – Tulip Fever!

This was the place where my mother would very much want to stay forever. Ahahaha… a heaven for flower lovers. As soon as I entered the cooled dome, flowery fragrant struck me. Taking a deep breath never had felt so good. I felt calm in a sudden.

This year’s spring was Vincent van Gogh Tulipmania Inspired. I had never seen so many tulips in one place. It was just so mesmerizing. More than 100 varieties of tulips and hyacinths – including Darwin hybrid tulips often appreciated for their large blooms – were displayed in a palette of colours.

Cloud Forest – Mysterious Mist

Amazing waterfall

The Cloud Forest replicated the cool moist conditions found in tropical mountain regions between 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) and 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) above sea level. It featured a 42-metre (138 ft) “Cloud Mountain”, accessible by an elevator, and visitors were able to descend the mountain via a circular path where a 35-metre (115 ft) waterfall provides visitors with refreshing cool air. I got a little wet the time I went inside this dome.

Inside the dome, there were not only plants and waterfall, but also a mini theater showing global warming effect, presentation of how the conservatories sustained and a mini display of stalactite and stalagmite inside a cave. What a dome.


May the 4th be with you all!




Apologize for all the selfies, I couldn’t stand it
