Veiled in mist and home to the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, the Cloud Forest at Gardens by the Bay is a must for first-time visitors to Singapore. Marvel at orchids, pitcher plants, and ferns from the tropical highlands, and stroll along the vertiginous Cloud Walk and Treetop Walk.
Book your ticket to the Cloud Forest in advance to skip the entry line. To save money, opt for a combo deal that grants you access to both the Cloud Forest and neighboring Flower Dome—some packages even include a hop-on hop-off Singapore sightseeing pass. Alternatively, visit the Cloud Forest as part of a night tour of Singapore, which reveals the Gardens by the Bay at their best.
