“Incredibly amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

So hard to describe this place in a few words. It is a massive complex and absolutely incredible. The Biodomes were amazing and contained a very eclectic mix of plants that I would never have expected to see grown together. The science behind these domes is impressive and I recommend anyone visiting to buy the DVD that explains how they were planned and built. So interesting. The super trees impressed me too, and just walking around the beautifully laid out and tended gardens surrounding the domes and trees, was very restful. If you have time, also factor in a walk over the Dragonfly Bridge into the Marina Bay Resort and Shopping Centre.

“Beautiful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Cloud Forest & Flower Dome was well worth the price of entry. The Cloud forest was amazing with the metal walkways and misting every so often.
The cost of constructing these building was quite expensive so I understand why they need to charge what they do.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

A brilliant concept that can be expected to get better with time. Make sure you take a hat and sunscreen if it's sunny as it's right on the water.

“The technological garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

These gardens were a great surprise to me. I didn't understand all those pictures of strange strong coloured mushroom-shaped structures... So I went to take a look from nearer. In general the gardens are nice but nothing special. The skywalk is pleasant but the real surprise are the glass houses, especially the cloud forest which is a concentrate of technology and reveals to you all the clever work which is behind this complex of gardens. This is one of the "paradises for engineers" offered by Singapore. A great match between artificial and natural which left me really amazed.
