Conservatories Guided Tour
Be wowed by the unobstructed view of amazing plants in the Flower Dome as you follow your guide through a cool-dry Mediterranean climate that can be experienced in parts of Europe, Australia, Chile, South Africa and California. As you gaze at the exceptional shapes of the towering Baobabs, learn about the tenacity of succulent plants and admire the strength of the thousand-year-old Olive Trees. Top this off with the brilliant display at the Flower Field, which hosts changing flower displays to reflect the different seasons and festivals.
Before you leave the Flower Dome, enjoy a breathtaking view of Marina Bay from the waterfront point and discover how energy-efficiency is achieved with sustainability strategies in the cooled Conservatories.
As you venture into the Cloud Forest, lose yourself in the mountain of exotic plants found in the Tropical Montane region, between 1,000 to 3,500 metres above sea level. Follow your guide past the waterfall that meanders through old forests of conifers and ferns that make up this unique environment. Upon arriving at the top, immerse yourself in the cool mist of the scenic Cloud Walk and take in the magnificent spectacle of the cooled Conservatory. As you make your way down, go deep into the heart of Crystal Mountain and discover how mountains are formed, and the vital role they play in the formation of landforms on Earth.
