Owner description: Step into the Flower Dome and you'll be standing in awe of nature. Spectacular and innovative in design, it is one of the icons of Bay South Garden. The Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean regions like South Africa, California and parts of Spain and Italy. Home to a collection of plants from deserts all over the world, it showcases the adaptations of plants to arid environments. Stop and smell the flowers in the colourful changing displays of the Flower Field, which reflects different seasons, festivals and themes.

“was expecting more flowers”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

It's not that this dome is bad but it suffers from comparison with the cloud forest dome, which was so good. This is more like a really nice garden, good for a stroll and the boababs are cool. Surprisingly there were not many actual flowers which was a bit of a let-down.
Unlike the cloud forest dome the walk is not 'structured', so you can wander around in any order you like. So i's a bit better for kids to run around.

“Wonderful garden”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

This magnificent glass domed building houses plants, trees & flowers from many regions of the world and is part of the Gardens on the Bay experience. Separate entrance fee required. Once inside it is very easy to walk around and each section is specifically designed to show off a particular type of plant. Great to see a line of the very odd baobab trees. In all of this there are some great "garden accessories" including a wonderful set of wooden horses. The miniature gardens behind the glass are delightful. Take a minute to look out through the glass for a magnificent view of the city

“Amazing Flora”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Wow, this place is amazing. We were blown away by the different varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers from all over the world. The Flower Dome was well laid out, clean, no sign of insects and air conditioned so walking around was relaxing.

Definitely make this attraction a must!

“Not too many rare flowers”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Many of the flowers and plants were what we could always see. Nothing that special! I liked the way that the area was separated into different gardens of the world.
