Opened in 1973, this zoo uses moats and beautifully landscaped glass-fronted enclosures to house some 2,800 animals. 28 hectares (69.2 acres) of land is divided into more than a dozen regions, featuring 216 species, including rare and endangered ones. The world's largest captive orangutan group can be found here. Two programs, Wild Breakfast and Afternoon Tea, enable visitors to interact with and learn more about six species of animals while having their meal (extra charges apply). Photographic opportunities, of course, abound. Other highlights include feeding programs, elephant and pony rides, animal shows and a tram ride.
really one of the must see places here in singapore. the zoo is great , i love the animal shows specially phillip the Sea lion, i also liked the elephant show. not only that they give information about taking care of our environment and the animals. it's very clean and well maintained. the animals are not in cages. you must got there if you visit singapore. =)
I had spent one day there. I think that is one of the most beautiful zoos I have visited. I was so impressed in their green, flower and animal, so were my friends ... We'll go back someday.
In addition, the animals're very lovely, strong and fattish. The air's so clean and fresh, the landscaps's wonderful.
This zoo is certainly amazing and can be enjoyed by the entire family. Set aside an entire day for this visit as there is so much to see there. It caters for everyone - you can either walk around or buy a ticket to ride around on the tram. The shows are very entertaining and you have a few eating places to choose from for your meals. Do go prepared with a sun hat or umbrella as it gets very hot there.
The Singapore Zoo is enormous, and it is practically impossible to see absolutely everything in a single visit. The zoo is set alongside a reservoir in some of Singapore's only remaining natural rainforest.
You have the choice of walking the park by yourself, or taking one of the trams aruond the park. For the more athletic, I highly recommend walking the park, as there is a lot to see.
Since Singapore's climate is so hot and humid, the zoo has small "air conditioning shelters" scattered throughout the park, for visitors to cool down and get a cool drink from a vending machine. It's touches like this that make the Singapore Zoo so worthwhile to visit.
If you are planning a visit to the Singapore Zoo with several people, I do not recommend booking with a tour company. It is much cheaper (with several people) to take a taxi to and from the Zoo, and buy your entry ticket at the gate. Also, if you are planning on visiting the (in my opinion, superior) Night Safari next door during your visit to Singapore, you can buy joint Zoo and Night Safari tickets from either place, and save some money. The tickets do not have to be used on the same day.
My previous visit to the Singapore Zoo was about 20 years ago. And I must say that they have done a marvelous job of updating this zoo. Lots of trees and shades, so even if you don't take the tram ride, you can still manage to walk around the whole zoo. We did get the all-day tram ride, which I don't think is quite worth it (since there's only 4 stops, and the zoo is small enough to walk all the way around). Good scenery, surrounded by the Seletar Reservoir. Pretty good variety of animals for a somewhat small zoo, especially primates. Good clean stalls for animals. Good walking paths, easy for baby strollers. Location is abit out of the way from downtown city-centre, though easily accessible by transit. We took the MRT from City Hall station to Khatib station (closest MRT station to the zoo, S$1.50 per person), then a taxi to the zoo (S$8 for ride), which took us about 45min from city-centre (which apparently would cost over S$20 for taxi ride). Cost for entrance is S$15 for adults, with S$5 extra for tram ride. Overall good experience, certainly worth the time and money.
This is the place to go.
It is the BEST ZOO IN THE WORLD. The animals are not in cages, but instead they are in huge, spacious areas with a river or ditch seperating them from us. The enclosures are made to be exactly like the animals natural habitats, and they have done an excellent job at it. The animals are happy and the are places in the zoo where you can touch the animals. Like the goats. At the elephant show, pay only $5.00 and you can feed the elephants a basket of fruit.
I HIGHLY recommend this zoo to anyone, whether they are an animal lover or not because this zoo has something for everyone.
With its driving philosophy of making art available to more people, there are many reasonably priced artworks packed into this
