    Singapore - Jurong Birdpark

    Jurong Birdpark

    An option for a day out if you are here in Singapore with your kids or anyone else who likes parks with birds (the feathered variety)


    How to get there - (well actually we just jumped in a cab and said 'Jurong Birdpark please.)

    Take the MRT to Boon Lay Station and transfer to SBS number 194 or 251 at the Boon Lay Bus Interchange.

    If you are driving,
    • From AYE, use Exit 17.
    • From PIE, use Exit 36. Turn left into Jalan Bahar towards the direction of Jalan Boon Lay. Turn right at Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim to reach BirdPark.

    Address
    2 Jurong Hill Singapore 628925
    Tel : (65) 6265 0022
    Fax : (65) 6261 1869
    E-mail : info@birdpark.com.sg
    http://www.birdpark.com.sg

    Entrance fee (including monorail ride):

    S$20 adult
    S$10 child

    mmmmm.........a bit expensive in my opinion, but I am well known for being tight with cash.

    As you would expect from Singapore, the setting is very nice and its quite pleasant to walk around, but gets a bit hot after a while so you may wish to take the air conditioned monorail (which seems to have been sponsored by Thai Airways.)

    Been in and out of Singapore for twenty-five years now and have always meant to give the place a visit, but, have never got round to it.
    Is the night safari park worth a look?

    They have about 20 or so 'speaking birds'. The best entertainment though is watching visitors trying to get the buggers to speak.

    They say that at 30m, this is the tallest man-made waterfall in the world. And who I am to argue?

    Another great thread, lets see some more pics.

    Sir Burr I went to the night safari about 6 years back, it's well worth a visit, a top attraction.

    Haven't seen the zoo yet though.

    Bird shows a few times a day. We just missed a birds of prey demonstration - which was a shame. Check the timings from the website before you go!

    This rainforesty type area was quite good, especially bouncing up and down on the rope bridge - until my kids told me to stop messing about. Don't know who these Indians are though.

    In summary - a nice day out for the family and well worth a visit - but if you only have a day in Singapore I would recommend the zoo or Sentosa as better alternatives for a whole day outing.

    Cheers
