A visit to the Jurong Bird Park provides an excellent first step into the world of birding. The massive aviary boasts exotic birds ranging from macaws to spoonbills to flamingos. If simply marveling at colorful, flying animals begins to bore you, the park also offers several shows and activities designed to entertain guests of all ages. What’s more, a guided tram is available to ferry visitors around the park for a one-time fee of SG$5 (about $3.69) for adults and SG$3 (about $2.21) for children ages 3 to 12.  

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.
