Singapore has a magnificent conservation park called Gardens by the Bay. There are two pods, built like green houses, but about 6 stories high.

It is a twenty minute walk from the hotel. The conservation domes are air conditioned and humidity controlled. That makes them an ideal spot to spend the early afternoon.
