The climate-controlled dome that houses Gardens by the Bay’s Cloud Forest carves out a futuristic looking space along Singapore’s skyline. An indoor waterfall serves as the Cloud Forest’s primary attraction, cascading 30 meters (about 98 feet) down the human-made mountain. The Cloud Forest’s climate aims to replicate misty tropical mountains, which are cooler than the local area, so jets of vapor and spray from the waterfall work together to create the attraction’s namesake fog.

Recent visitors primarily praise the indoor waterfall, adding that the attraction offers a welcome respite from Singapore’s sweltering heat. Travelers also marveled at the plants, which vary from level to level; however, they also warn that parts of the higher levels may be triggering for those with a fear of heights.

Visitors also suggest trying to time your visit with the mist, which occurs at two-hour intervals from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. The Cloud Forest is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, while ticket sales and admission both end at 8 p.m. The standard admission rate is SG$28 (about $20.65) for adults and SG$15 (about $11.06) for children ages 3 to 12. Keep in mind that standard admission grants you access to two conservatories in Gardens by the Bay. To get to the complex via public transit, get off at the Bayfront MRT Station. Visit the Cloud Forest’s website for more information.
