“A Cool Place to Spend a Hot Day”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We took the tram ride around the gardens ($5 SIN/ea) and then went into the Flower Dome to have a look around. There are several nice gift shops outside of the domes. Cloud Dome was interesting. I was glad we were there when the mist went off at 2 pm (You might want to inquire what times the mist goes off to make sure you are there for it). I really liked the Monkey Puzzle Trees and the Pitcher Plants.

“Not to be missed if you love nature”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We spend our five hours in both the Flower Dome and Cloud Forrest Conservatories. The first thing that struck me was the controlled temperature of the Conservatory that was cool. It was a sign of a pleasant journey to learn and experience the array of colours and smell of the Flower Dome which did not disappoint my wife and I a wee bit. We have never experience so many different plants and flowers from different parts of the world all grouped into a single place before. It was truly a magical journey. We later moved on to the Cloud Forrest Conservatory after a break of coffee and cake at the rest area.

The 30 meters man made waterfall that greets the visitor into the Cloud Forrest again is a sign of what is in store for the visitor. The waterfall although man made is almost magical with it's mist being blown by the cool air coming out of the side of the man made hill. The plant life and vegetation in this conservatory is different. It is an experience just to walk through it.

We are already planning for our next visit. I highly recommend this visit to everyone.

“well worth seeing”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

The gardens are very well set out and the audio tour is great we did this first so new where everything was so was easier to find our way round there is a small charge of $5 for the tour but worth it. The cloud Forrest dome is amazing and a must see the waterfall inside the dome is great a great place for photos there are so many beautiful flowers to look at and photograph.
There is a lift inside the dome for wheelchair access which is great.
The flower dome is also good with flowers from all over the world. The gardens are free to roam aroung but there is a fee for the domes
