One will be surprised to find so many different types of animals here in Singapore. Visitors can even observe nocturnal animals in their natural surroundings. Or watch reptiles being fed. All these are possible in the "animal kingdom" of Singapore.

Jurong BirdPark

One of Asia Pacific's largest and most impressive bird parks, Jurong BirdPark offers visitors an experience that is entertaining, as well as educational. Its beautifully landscaped 20-hectare area is home to over 8,000 birds from 600 species, all displayed in huge enclosures.

The bird shows at the Pools Amphitheatre that feature flamingoes, macaws, hornbills, and cockatoos are both spectacular and funny. They are highly recommended for children. The Penguin Parade enclosure in a re-created Antarctic setting houses more than 200 penguins of 5 species. There are also 50 other sea birds such as the Inca terns and puffins within the Penguin Parade enclosure. Another highlight is the colorful hornbill and toucan exhibit. Jurong BirdPark has one of the largest hornbill collections in the world. The Southeast Asian Birds Aviary houses more than 100 species of birds from the equatorial jungles of Southeast Asia in its 24 individual aviaries and a main walk-in aviary. The birds' natural equatorial habitat is re-created with simulated tropical thunderstorm everyday at noon. Owls and kiwis can be found at the nocturnal house and there is also a colorful Parrot Paradise.

The best way to start a tour of the BirdPark is to board the modern, air-conditioned monorail system (extra charges apply). Its route covers the entire Park, providing excellent elevated views of the various exhibits. A walking tour is then suggested, using the Park's footpaths and map. Jurong BirdPark was the winner of the 10th. Tourism Award 1995-Leisure Attraction of the Year. It opens from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends and public holidays. Certain facilities are also available for the physically disabled.

Getting there :Take SBS Bus 194 or 251 from Boon Lay MRT Station.
