Unfortunately, the flower dome was closed for maintenance on our visit (do a better job than us of checking their website for closures!), so we could only see the cloud forest – thankfully the one that Mr 3 was excited about! It’s a big dome featuring a 35 metre tall “mountain” complete with waterfall.There are many different levels with a lift to the top one and then we slowly made our way down.There are cool pathways that were suspended in the air at times.
However you do have to pay for the conservatories and the OCBC skyway – which is the 22 metre high walkway. *Free*A great introduction and one of our things to do in Singapore with family is to take a ride on the big Singapore flyer – the second largest observation wheel in the world.Is there a better place to visit in the world with kids than Singapore?Singapore is jam packed with family friendly attractions.This place is amazing and it is like visiting a futuristic garden with its vertical gardens (“Supertrees”!), big domed conservatories and very cool children’s garden.It is, however, usually quick and easy to move between them on the MRT.One of my absolute favourite things to do in Singapore is to visit Gardens by the Bay.Despite being short on time on every visit to Singapore, I have visited this place on both my last visits as I enjoy it so much and it is something different that I haven’t experienced elsewhere. There are many nice gardens – like ones to celebrate Singapore’s main cultural groups with Malay, Chinese and Indian gardens – as well as some big paid attractions.The biggest two are the conservatories – the flower dome and cloud forest.It features plant life from tropical highland areas up to 2000m above sea level.As a bonus, it’s nice and cool compared to the outside air. At the end there was an informative film about climate change that had Z hooked.
