When going to the Singapore Zoo, one must be ready to walk. It was a great challenge to finish the Zoo since we’ve never walked for more than 30 minutes for the past months/years. My eldest, Jacob was able to finish it. It was obvious that he was very tired, but he continued until he could see the last animal. My youngest was able to finish it, but would ask to be carried from time to time, as it was really tiring. =)
At the end of the tour and you don’t have a car with you, be prepared to stand for quite a long time while waiting for a taxi after your visit to the zoo. Since most are tourists, the queue is just really long, so better call a cab or hire a cab who’ll pick you up before going there. We waited for more than 30 minutes! We all wanted to sleep in the taxi the moment we told the driver our desired destination. =) Be sure to download Singapore Travel-related apps, because the whole city is well organized using these apps. From taxi, restaurants, to hotel bookings, the apps are well used.
Some photos from the Singapore Zoo. Enjoy!
Visiting a zoo can help kids appreciate animals and it will be amazing for them that the pictures they see on books are now moving in front of them. =)
Since 1973, Singapore Zoo has been known for having among the most beautiful wildlife park settings in the world, where animals roam freely in open and naturalistic habitats.
Singapore Zoo is also well-known for its walk-through exhibits that bring animals and visitors together in one space for incredibly intimate encounters.
