Singapore 2015 Part 2
Another awesome tourist spots that we visited are; Gardens by the Bay and Cloud Forest. I really love Singapore because it is like a garden country.
This is the Dragonfly bridge that connects Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay. I have the awesome backdrop of the Singapore Flyer and Supertrees here.

Signages. It’s everywhere here in Singapore.
Supertrees Grove in the afternoon.
After our stroll at the Gardens by the Bay, we decided to visit Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. I will have a separate blog for Flower Dome because I will surely have more pics of the flowers.
Cloud Forest is the home of 60,000 plants from tropical highlands, 2,000 metres above sea level and it also features the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. It is foggy and cloudy inside you would feel like you are in the depth of the forest.
We also decided to trek behind the waterfall and through the clouds in a refreshingly cool forest canopy until we reached the Lost World.
This is the Lost World, this is already on the topmost area of the Cloud forest.
Beautiful Orchids are also grown here.
After our brief chill at the Lost World, we went for a Cloud Walk and Treetop Walk to enjoy the breathtaking bird’s-eye view of the Cloud Forest.
In the middle of our Cloud Walk we entered the Crystal Mountain wherein you will see the Cathedral of stones. These are the Stalagmites and Stalactites stones formation.
It’s amazing how these natural sculptures grow inside the caves, but since caves are naturally damp, the continuous dripping of water leads to these glorious formation.
If you also wonder the difference between Stalactites and Stalagmites, I have an answer to that because I am a curious little creature looking for answers to everything that happens around me. Stalactites are formed because of the dripping of water from the ceiling of the cave that crystallizes and become icicle-shaped, then the water that drip onto the floor will also form an upward shape, that is called the Stalagmites. If the 2 meets, a column will be formed.
Before we went back to our hotel, we still had time to appreciate the beauty of the Supertrees at night and watched Garden Rhapsody, an exhilarating visual and audio spectacle wherein lights are dancing in the Supertrees. This is a daily night show you can watch at Gardens by the Bay at 7:45 PM and 8:45 PM.
We passed by the beautiful Singapore Flyer and also witnessed Marina Bay Sands Laser Light Show.
A hot choco won’t hurt after an exhausting yet productive day.
Stay tuned for my Flower Dome blog for my Singapore trip Part 3.
