Visiting the Cloud Forest at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.
Singapore is a great place to go for a vacation. It’s clean, easy to navigate, has great transportation options and is perpetually in summer weather. Singapore is also known to be very expensive, especially for Southeast Asia. But, there are still plenty of things to do and visit in Singapore even if you are on a budget. And one of those is the Cloud Forest.
The Cloud Forest is an amazing indoor garden that is part of Gardens by the Bay by Marina Bay Sands.
Gardens by the Bay are great in their own right and completely free to walk through. The Cloud Forest and it’s neighboring Flower Dome do cost money, but it is not too expensive.
Also, since the Cloud Forest is indoors, it is the perfect place to go when rain inevitably hits. Especially if you are in the outdoor gardens when the rain pour begins.
And since we are talking about budgets, you get a discount if you purchase tickets for both the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome.
I only went to the Cloud Forest but I’ve heard great things about the Flower Dome too.
It was pouring rain when I went to the Cloud Forest and I was happy to have somewhere air conditioned to be during the rainfall.
The Cloud Forest is almost hard to describe. Especially because I didn’t really know what to expect when I walked in.
It is known for it’s amazing indoor waterfall. The waterfall is right at the entrance and I would have loved to spend more time there or see it again.
Once you go past the indoor waterfall, you are greeted by plants and flowers of all sorts. The Cloud Forest leads you along a path throughout the building.
In the middle, there is a large mountain of sorts and it is this that you go up and through, until you are right underneath the waterfall.
There are so many amazing plants and flowers to look at this entire time. Plus, there are amazing views through the glass since the Cloud Forest is situated near the marina and Gardens by the Bay.
When you are in the Cloud Forest, make sure you stay until the misting of the plants starts.
There is so much beauty in the Cloud Forest. If you find yourself in Singapore, it is one of the sights your should make time to see.
Have you ever been to the Cloud Forest or somewhere else just as magical? What’s on your bucket list?
