Gardens by the Bay has two large greenhouses along the seafront: the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Both designed by Wilkinson Eyre, they are intended to showcase eco-sustainable technology, and are architectural masterpieces. The roofs of both the greenhouses stand without the support of columns, and they also collect rainwater and distribute it through the supertrees.

The taller of the two, the Cloud Forest, will carry you off into the cool, humid conditions of the tropical mountain regions between 1,000 and 3,000 meters. Inside, you can admire the spectacular, 42-meter-tall "Cloud Mountain", completely covered with orchids, ferns and moss. You can take an elevator up to the top and then walk back down the winding path. A 35-meter-high waterfall cools the environment just enough for the plants.
