What you'll do

You’ll get to virtually explore the Cloud Forest and discover a mysterious world veiled in mist. Take in breath-taking mountain views surrounded by diverse vegetation and hidden floral gems. And learn about rare plants and their fast-disappearing environment.

This online experience lasts 45 minutes. We'll explore the mountain and bridges, as well as the upper and lower forest floor of the Cloud Forest. The mountain is densely planted with fascinating plants while you learn about plant collections such as Aroids, Begonia, Vireya Rhododendrons and Medinilla.

Many of these species face the threats of climate change and habitat loss brought about by human activities. It is hoped that displaying them in the conservatories will help to promote awareness of the wonders of nature and the value of plants to Man and the importance of conserving natural environments.

This Experience is great for team-building, school projects, families & solo travelers! Book a private experience for your group. If your group is larger than the listed max group size for private groups, please send us a message.

I am the Deputy Director of Gardens by the Bay’s Cloud Forest, where I oversee the care and maintenance of plants, including rare and vulnerable species. I first discovered my passion for plants after moving to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona and was fascinated by how resilient and tough a plant has to be to survive in such a harsh environment. This discovery, combined with my curious and adventurous spirit, inspired me to pursue an education and career in horticulture, which eventually led me to Singapore. I could not resist the lure of being part of the most ambitious horticultural project I had ever heard of! I feel very lucky and proud to have been a part of it from such an early phase. I have had the chance to watch the conservatories grow from a construction site to one of the must visit indoor gardens in the world!

This was fascinating. I learned a lot. Now I can’t wait to get to Singapore and see this in person! Chads love of the plants was obvious and his knowledge is endless. He’s passionate which draws you in and wanting to learn more and see more. Wish the experience was longer.

Chad gives an insightful look into some of the plants at the Cloud Forest in the Gardens By the Bay, and from the perspective of someone working directly on the plants there. He had interesting answers to our many questions and I really loved being able to move around and look at things up close in the Q&A section during the last part of the experience. I highly recommend Chad’s experience to anyone interested in plants.

It's great to virtually walk around this amazing botanical garden. Chad was knowledgeable and told me lots of interesting stories about the plants and how they set up the mountain to grow plants on it. The carnivorous plant section was really cool!

This was a great experience! Chad was very knowledgeable and a great host! The Cloud Forest was beautiful! I learned a lot about the plants, and how they are maintained. It's miraculous to see so many different varieties of plants from around the world in one place.

The Cloud Forest is an amazing structure and biological study of plants. Chad has a vast knowledge of plants & I could tell he really enjoys his subject matter, which contributed to my enjoyment & further understanding of plants.
