Past visitors universally loved the Lory Loft, where the birds will land on your hands and shoulders in search of a sip of nectar. These recent travelers also recommend being sure to catch the High Flyers and Penguin Feeding shows.

The Jurong Bird Park is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the last entry is at 5:30 p.m. Tickets cost SG$30 (about $22.12) for adults and SG$20 (about $14.75) for children ages 3 to 12, while tickets purchased online receive a discount between 5% and 10%. The park sits in the western part of the island, and travelers will need to take a bus from the Boon Lay MRT Station or transfer buses once if they plan to take public transportation.
