Singapore Zoo reviews
Bring my kids down to learn about animals in Singapore. Start teaching them at young age to let them have more exposure more »
The Singapore Zoo is one of the most amazing zoos i have ever been to i loved how you had close interaction with all the animlas and especially in the butterfly enclosure would love to re visit this..... more »
Amazing place. Vivid experiences. Loved the guided tours and shows..they have 3 packages to choose from. If visiting keep a good 3 hours plus an hour for travel as it is a little away from downtown. Great positive environments. Do not miss out the shows. Check the schedules on their website for the same
This attraction is definitely a must do whilst in Singapore. We only did the zoo (river and night safari are both two different ticketed attractions) and spent most of our day there. We got a grab here and it wasn't too expensive - you can get there by metro and bus but just seemed a taxi is much quicker and not much more expensive. The zoo is easy to get around and we managed to see pretty much everything on the map - there is some amazing scenery too and picnic places. It was epic! Free ranging orangutans swinging from tree to tree. A beautiful aviary and butterfly house. Every animal was so well cared for, and we loved the fact there were active breeding programs for endangered and critical species. We loved the signs all around about the illegal pet trade, as education in this part of the world is so vital. The complete lack of cages and fences was admirable and gave the sense of connection between the animals and us.The zoo also houses some rescue dogs and cats which host a show around 4pm but unfortunately we missed this. You can tell the keepers really care for the animals and the shows that we did see were amazing. A beautiful and ethical zoo, well worth seeing. Best way to get there is taxi - ours was $19 from Clarke Quay for a family of 4.
