  • Interesting place. Host for the show was good. However, more thought could be given to managing the entry into the park. Currently it's a long wait to enter the park and once you are in, it's another long queue for the tram. Pretty exhausted before we could catch a glimpse of the first animal. Would be helpful for people if there were notices on the website to mention that the early entry timings are usually sold out pretty quickly.
  • Great place with a lot of different animals to see. The fact that the experience occurs at night makes this place really fun and interesting. Only downside is the rides to the trams. They are long and its probably faster to just walk the trails. Unfortunately, one section of the park does not have trails (or if there are, it wasn't very apparent from the map).
  • Night Safari is a must and Kids love it, even if you have seen dozens of Zoo's around the world! Over the course of more than 10 year that I've lived in Singapore I brought just about every visitor from Europe to the Night Safari (even if there are many well kept Zoo's in i.e. Switzerland) but the Night Safari and the show (check the schedule right at the entrance to make sure you don't miss the fun filled event) are so different and great attraction. Spend the money to take the train ride across the Night Safari "Zoo" and come very close to animals feeding next to you. A MUST for families with kids. They will be excited about the mix of darkness and animals and adventure.
  • It is a great experience to catch all the animals there in the open (including lions and elephants). The coach in each tram keeps explaining about all the animals. Walking trails is highly recommended to have an even better experience. The fire dance near the entrance was quite a show.
  • Night safari was nothing special. You can see all of the animals in other zoos. You need to wait like two to three hours to enter the park. And once you're in, it's another hour to get into the tram. Chinese tourists were trying to get into the line, which was even more annoying. Don't waste your time here. Go to somewhere else, like merlion park, river cruise...

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
