  • It was fun to learn about the animals that live in and around rivers of the world. The river cruise wasn't open so we didn't get to see that part of the park. The other parts were nice though with interesting fish, manatees, river otters, and pandas among other animals. We went around twice on a weekday, which was a rather quiet and enjoyable experience. We also went on the reservoir boat ride, which was a nice ride but didn't see any animals except giraffes at the main zoo.
  • Who knew fresh water animals were so amazing! I now want to see the world's great rivers. Honestly it's eye-opening, you'll see river in whole other way. The panda's were super cute, we went through the panda exhibit twice because the first time everyone was sleeping or grooming in the corner. Second time we caught them at feeding time and bouncing around. so i recommend you taking your time if you wanna see them in action.
  • The newest zoo in Singapore (up to this point). Very well maintained, the animals are well fed and taken care responsibly. Of course, the 2 pandas are everyone's favourites. But some of my favourites also include the red pandas (just before you visit the pandas), the big crocodiles, some of the big fishes, and of course the dugongs towards the end is truly a magical experience. If the uncle that sells ice-cream in the pineapple is still there, try it, it's very good! :)
  • It was very cool, Halloween party today and all the staff dressed up. We saw Panda for the 1st time. Place very well done and clean. Definitely worth doing.
  • Follow a single loop path through this very well setup zoo. Lots of educational displays, great variety of animals and two boat rides. Great for little kids looking for a two hour highlight tour of animals.
