Singapore: Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay

Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay

In Singapore, I also visited the Flower Dome, which is a giant conservatory at Gardens by the Bay. On an ordinary day, the 28SGD admission would probably have kept me away, but it was raining outside, and I had a couple of hours to kill, so I decided to go anyway.

The flowers were beautiful but I don’t know anything about botany, so that’s pretty much all I can tell you. Don’t get me wrong, walking through the Flower Dome was a very pleasant experience but I had the same feeling as I usually have, when visiting an art museum. I can see that it’s beautiful and the flowers smell nice, but that’s all. I don’t feel that I have the knowledge to fully appreciate the experience.

On a platform, one stair up, was a collection of baobab trees of all shapes and sizes. Some of them almost looked human and I wondered whether I should shake hands or give them a high-five and introduce myself. Oh, and I also saw some really feisty-looking cactuses looking like they were ready to attack any moment.

What impressed me the most was how they manage to keep all those flowers alive. When I think of how Poul and I struggled to save the basil plant in our window in Dubai (it passed away a couple of weeks ago, we’re still mourning), I’m even more amazed by the Flower Dome.


The Flower Dome is open daily 9:00-21:00 (last ticket sale 20:00). Tourists pay 28SGD for a combination ticket which includes entrance fee to the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome.
