A Tour of Gardens by the Bay in Singapore: Part 2 – Cloud Forest


Cloud Forest is a conservatory with a 35-meter tall mountain covered with lush vegetation surrounding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. It replicates the cool moist conditions found in tropical mountain regions up to 2,000-meters above sea level. The mountain itself is an intricate structure completely clad with plants and consists of a number of levels, each with a different theme. The structure is accessible by an elevator and visitors will be able to descend the mountain via a circular path. Mist is generated by the bridges above, simulating the high tropical mountains, which plants absorb and release gradually. The highest point of the mountain showcases vegetation typically found at high elevation. Carnivorous plants such as the Venus Fly-catcher are planted here against a carpet of delicate ferns and moss. 2,577 glass panels of 690 different shapes and sizes were needed to cover the whole 12,000m2 surface area of the dome. The mountain is densely planted with fascinating orchids, ferns, bromeliads, begonias and carnivorous pitcher plants. Inside the Crystal Mountain Cave, discover the many interesting shapes of real stalactites and stalagmites. Limestone forests and caves are represented here with more than 7,000 plants consisting of 135 species and hybrids. This new installation of miniature orchids are so tiny that magnifying glasses are used to view the blooms.

  2. Best place for a relax in the busy Singapore. We visited it a while ago and video review as well. Thanks for you video! 👍

  3. I am from Malaysia and I goes to Singapore every month for a year now! Never once I had visited this place! Simply I prefer a natural nature environment, not man-made. In Malaysia we had natural nature. Anyway it's sad that Singapore is geographically a flat land !! Even in Penang there's hill for nature appreciation. Same to HK. Penang is one third of Singapore and there's hill !!!! Anyhow is amazing that Singapore came out with such structure and nature display at its best, by man made though!!

  4. Cloud forest was such a good surprise! I had not planned going there, but it ended up being among my favorite attractions

  5. сначала всё уничтожили ,вырубали,выкорчевали. Атеперь строят ,создают эко парки платные .а ведь достаточно было просто сохранить то что дала природа мать.
