This is part of the series we started around sharing beautiful sites of our beloved Singapore. In an earlier post, we introduced the gardens by the bay. Then we sort of got sidetracked. Because there is just so much to share – that even our Holland series took like 2 months to complete. Schizo we are in a way, as we haphazardly post stories from all around.
Well for this post, we focus more on the large domes that are a central feature at the gardens. These large green houses are home to plant species that would not normally thrive in Singapore’s hot and humid climate.
The flower dome in particular houses a great many species from the temperate regions of the world, specifically from California, Italy etc. The cloud dome on the other hand focuses on the tropical plants of the highlands. Yes, the tropics do have mountain ranges too. We recalled that during the 2 years prior to the domes being ready, many of these trees were already stored beneath the highways, behind barbed wire of course!
Sure this part of the gardens is not free. But to complete the entire experience, take some time to explore both domes. Find out more about these domes here if it helps you decide!
