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 feel 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 is not another ordinary zoo.
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.
Singapore Zoo Map
The arrow icon of the above map is where the Zoo is located. The Rabbit icon shown where Sentosa Island is. The Giraffe icon is The Singapore Flyer location and the Deer icon is the newest attraction Jewel Changi Airport location.
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 orang utans 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.
