When you tire of the urban jungle, head to an actual jungle: the Singapore Zoo. The expansive facility is broken up into 11 different zones and has 12 exhibits, affording numerous opportunities to get up close and personal with a diverse array of wildlife. Venture to Primate Kingdom and get a glimpse into the lives of the 39 species of primate that call that zone home. Or visit the Elephants of Asia exhibit, where you can rub elbows with the five big girls (all five elephants are female) hailing from Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Indonesia. Along with numerous exhibits, guests can also attend animal shows, go on tours and safaris (the night safari is particularly popular), or even feed some of the animals.
Recent travelers raved about the zoo. Visitors appreciated how well-maintained the zoo was: animals appeared to be well looked after and their enclosures appeared to be exactly what their habitats would look like in the wild. Both kids and adults reported being entertained, and some recommended allotting as much as an entire day for the zoo as there is that much to see.
To reach the zoo, you can take the 138 SMRT bus from the Ang Mo Kio MRT station or the 927 SMRT bus from the Choa Chu Kang MRT station. To plan your trip, consult our guide to Getting Around Singapore. The park is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and costs SG$33 (about $24.60) for adults and SG$22 (about $16.40) for children. If you're interested in heading to other wildlife reserves in Singapore, such as the Night Safari, the Jurong Bird Park or River Safari, combined tickets are available.
