Set on 50 acres (20 hectares) of verdant green space, Singapore’s Jurong Bird Park is home to thousands of birds across hundreds of species. Enjoy quality family time at the various attractions, such as the Birds & Buddies show, which runs twice a day and features characters in colorful costumes. Check the show schedule at the park when you arrive, as other shows take place during the day. You’ll also ride the Panorail to enjoy a panoramic view of the bird park in air-conditioned comfort.
Stop by the African wetlands exhibit to see African birds in their habitat of ferns, palms and native-style pavilions, and learn about the environmental balance in which birds and humans both live. Enter a misty jungle-style habitat at the Waterfall Aviary, and don’t miss the penguin exhibit, which features an underwater viewing gallery to watch the penguins.
