Located at the nucleus of Jewel is a stunning 40-meter indoor waterfall, currently the tallest one in the world. The water cascades into the center of Forest Valley - an indoor garden which holds over 1,000 species of plants under a crystalline dome. At night, light shows transform the clear stream into a mesmerizing spectrum.

On the 5th floor is the park area, spanning over 14,000 m² and packed with awesome activities.

Our first stop is the floral garden. Snap some spectacular photos of the boundless bouquets of flowers and share them to your friends on social media. The animal topiaries can make you feel as if you’re transported to a lively jungle.

There’s also the Canopy Mazes - a hedge labyrinth where visitors can test their mental skills while finding their way around. If you’re looking for a real challenge, though, enter the Mirror Maze and try to find your way out.
