Jurong Bird Park, Singapore
Categories: Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks
See thousands of colorful birds in flight at Jurong Bird Park, where you can attend regular live shows and feedings. Rare and exotic birds abound at the open-air aviary, from flocks of pink flamingos to rainbow-colored parrots. You can even get up close to penguins in their icy habitat. Make sure to visit the waterfall aviary, a free-flight habitat centered around a 13-storey cascade. Sightsee without tiring yourself by getting around the park on a hoop-on, hop-off tram.

Disclaimer - I am huge fan of birds. For me, they are the most glorious of all creations. So it should not come as a surprise that I will be gushing about this place throughout the review. Location: Reaching Jurong Bird park is not difficult. However, being located on the outskirts of the city, it requires at least 1.5 hours to reach if you are using MRT and bus service. Simply follow the instructions on the website on how to reach there and you will be fine. Tickets: We purchased the park hopper package, which included entry for Jurong Bird Park, River Cruise, Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, which costed us SGD62. I will strongly urge everyone to do the same, as this package is discounted compared to individual tickets (even if you plan on going to two locations, it still works out cheaper) Zoo Premises: Zoo itself is vast and large, with a tropical setting. It gets hot and humid during afternoons. Wear light clothes. To go around, you can either walk, or use the tram services, which cost around SGD10 for 2 people. Once you enter, a bunch of noisy parrots greets you, raising all sorts of hell, chattering really loud. For me, their noises were pure music. They sit on a perch with trainers and visitors are encouraged to take pictures with them. You can't have one on your shoulder or anything, but you can hold a branch on which several of these birds are perched. You will also have those red plumed macaws around, but you can't interact with them because they are not used to different people touching them. Once you take the pictures, you can buy them from nearby kiosk at an exorbitant price. That was real money gouging tactic employed by the management of all the zoos in Singapore. We gave it a pass. There are several enclosures housing amazing exotic birds. My favorite ones were Birds of Paradise and Parrot and macaws enclosures. The zookeepers seem to take great care of the birds and have great love and respect for them. Zoo also has one of the largest Aviaries in the world, which houses the most talkative of birds I have seen - Lories! You can buy a sugar solution for SGD3 and feed these amazing birds as they perch near you or on you! I enjoyed every waking moment in that place and my wife had to throw a tantrum to get me out of it. For me, the high point of the visit was the High Flyers show, where i got to interact with a bird when it flew up from its trainer, took a SGD50 note from my palm and flew back to its trainer (money was of course returned by the same bird!) That incident was one of the best moments of my life! The King of the Skies show should also not be missed. Make sure that you spend an entire day at this amazing place. Anything less, and you are not doing yourself any justice. Also, if you are on a tight budget, make sure that you come to the place stocked with a few supplies - like water bottles and some food / snacks like sandwiches. The water is upwards of SGD3 (500ml only) and a quick bite for a single person will easily be SGD15. You will find a couple of places in the park where you can stock up on your water supplies, but it won't appear on the map. Ask someone from the staff. One place I definitely remember is the Waterfall Aviary.
