“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The gardens are free to walk around, the only costs are for the 2 domes and the sky walk and they give concessions. The cloud dome was spectacular with a huge waterfall greeting you as you go in nd amazing views during the day. The flower dome is beautiful with the flowers of different regions of theworld being displayed. We returned in the evening to see and hear the show of lights and music which is played twice every night. It is an easy walk to Marina Bay Sands.

“One word: fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a must see . Devided in 2 buildings. Very nice design and I found this an experience to visit. Best indoor flower garden I have ever seen. The waterfall in the other building is very spectacular. I can recommend this to everyone to visit.

“Don't go to the cloud forest if you hate heights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I'm not one for heights and unfortunately most of the cloud forest is spent walking around and down a walkway very high up (about 6 stories). The walkway has grill mesh on either side so you can see the ground under your feet. The waterfall inside is fantastic. The Flower Dome was ok, some of the plants looked a bit sick.

“Oasis in the City.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a wonderful garden,cost free unless you vist the aboriums, well worth the money and air conditioned,you can buy cool drinks from vendors on the way,also a small train will take you around for a fee.
Have plenty of time,as its a place of relaxation and contemplation.

“World botany in half a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A definite must to visit. The domes were fabulous, although fairly new and maturing they were fabulous for all ages and educational in a fun way
