“Venus Fly Traps and OtherWorldy Orchids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

The top of the Cloud Forest Dome is called "The Lost World" and I got lost in this world of orchids, bromeliads, venus fly traps, pitcher plants and more for over three hours. I also enjoyed all of the unique sculptures such as the old truck made up of mosses, asian totem poles, the full vertical wall of orchids, and the five story water falls. There are so many awesome nooks and crannies to this place that even non plant lovers will have an amazing time in this unique glass conservatory. Allow plenty of time for the Cloud Dome and study up on your orchids because this dome houses over 30 species of orchids alone.

“View from the mist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

It's amazing what they have done here, a very interactive and educational experience for all the family. A good reminder that we can all do our bit for the environment. Do check out the rest of the area as well.

“Amazing cloud forest reconstruction (not for the acrophobic). Chillier than outside so bring a sweater!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

This is an amazing reconstruction of an actual cloud forest environment - so it will feel chilly and damp inside compared to the heat and humidity of outside. You may want to bring a cardigan/sweater if you've been wandering around in t-shirts.

After initially walking round the base of the waterfall you take a lift to the top and then begin your descent. Ok, you know you are in an artificial dome but it looks absolutely amazing and the flora are truly fantastic. There are also some fabulous displays of quartz and other minerals.

I was also really impressed with the exhibition/film at the end of what a +5°C climate change world would be like. Worth saving a bit of time for that.

Practical hint - you enter the dome on the ground floor but before that you have to go up to the first floor to buy your ticket. If you're not a Singapore resident then you have to buy a combined ticket for the Cloud Forest and Flower Domes (was about 28 SGD, I think?). Anyway, both are great and worth seeing so wasn't an issue for us.

Finally, not a negative point but do be aware that the walkways are quite high and narrow. One of my friends is acrophobic and had to leave, so worth checking with your companions beforehand whether anyone has a problem with heights.
