If Singapore Zoo is not in your vacation itineraries, you must have missed out something, especially if you are in a family vacation. After several visits to the zoo, I felt proud of it. This is one of the sights, besides Sentosa Island, that all of your family members will enjoy. I'll show you why this zoo is considered as one of the best in the world.
Some people who have a bad impression visiting a zoo thought that it is a place which is hot and smelly. I'm here to assure you that this one is not.
You may have another doubt: What's the fun of watching animal which were kept behind bars or in cages? I must say again, this one is different. In most cases, they live in their natural habitat.
Apart from all that, you can really get closed to the animal. The first time we came to this rainforest platform (as shown in the left photo), my two kids were so excited to run about looking for any sight of animal up and down the river. They shouted at me excitedly when they spotted a False Ghavial hiding at one corner of the bush(below right photo)
The below left photo was taken from a wooden bridge under which the deers are moving around freely.
The orangutans are climbing and jumping freely on trees just above us. For those aggressive animals like jaguars, they were being kept behind a glass panel which enable us to see them clearly in near distance.
The manmade moat, which keep us a safe distance away from the monkeys and cheetah, allow us to see the animals clearly without any obstructions.
Let our kids get close encounter with the friendly and loveable goats, donkeys, guinea pigs and giant rabbits at the Rainforest Kidzworld.
Adult Ticket S$37, Child Ticket S$25 (3 to 12 years old) and Senior Citizen Ticket S$17 (aged 60 and above). I would recommend you to buy the zoo's tickets online to avoid long queue at the ticketing counters. Besides, you save 5-20% of the ticket prices when you buy the tickets online.
