  • Been to other zoo’s and this is not particularly large although there is a tram that you can use to get around. Usual shows etc available and where possible there are views of the animal without...  more »
  • It is really great place and its a wonder how such a small place like Singapore has all these facilities. The Zoo is just a full day affair  more »

  • 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.
  • One of the best zoos in the region. Well kept, beautiful and the decor and furnishings are tastefully done. There is an abundant amount of different animals on display. You can spend half a day at the zoo easily and then hop over next door to the night safari. Tourist can spend 1 whole day here easily. Compared to many other zoos in the region, this is one of the best. But the entry prices are reflective of a first world country's entry price. Way too expensive in my opinion.
