They are the largest glasshouse in the world, apparently. It took us about two hours for the cloud dome and three for the temperate dome. They are a lot bigger than the Eden project domes. There are a lot of wooden sculptures in there, mainly carved by Chinese. I'll save them for another day. I did notice that rhododendrons and orchids have been subject to a lot of hybridization. They had bottles of micropropagated orchids for sale in the shop that would pass customs (in sterile jelly), but I don't really want 100 the same to flower in five years. I want them now.
The swimming pool is on floor 57
We were on floor 52, but on the other side, facing the old part of Singapore. The glass leans out, so we could see the road below. The garden side has balconies with bougainvillea growing all over it.
