Stepping out of Singapore Internatinal Airport, it was hot and humid.Some highlights were: The singapore Zoo and the Singapore night safari. We dedicated a whole day to visit both these places. The zoo itself was enjoyable. Personally, I love going to zoos. I think it was mating season when we were there, because it was like every fifth animal was in heat and trying to mate. It was an experiece! It was a humid day when we were there. The toilets at the zoo were pretty cool as well. Quite different. we were able to ride an elephant, take some photos with an orangatang and a snake!The night zoo was something I've never experieced before. This zoo does not open until it gets dark.

The location of the hotel is great. Walking distance to newton circus (apparently has a great food place--however we didn't get a chance to try it out!), and it was also a short walk to orchard road where the shopping and action was.The hotel itself, we didn't rate highly.

Singapore Zoo

Attraction

We had a fantastic time at the zoo. We spent half a day here. There are trams that you can take. There are plenty of animals and shows that you can see and touch. My favourite were the elephants. We even had a chance to ride an elephant, which was guided by the trainer on a small track.We also had a chance to see a few animals mate, such as the rhinos and the lions. It was something different, and something that we weren't expecting to see.We had a great day at the zoo. This would be great for little kids. they would love the animals that are there.AdmissionSGD 15 adults, SGD 7.50 children (3 - 12 years)Tram SGD 5 (adult) SGD 2.50(children)Opening Hours8...Read More

The night safari is pretty much a zoo where people are able to visit after dark. There are plenty of fences and barriers to ensure your safety. There is a tram that you are able to to take and tour guide with narration that lets you know where you are and the origin of the animal that you are seeing.In the night safari there is a show that people can go to. It's an interesting animal show where there are animals performing tricks etc.Creatures of the Night ShowDaily: 8:00pm, 9:00pm, and 10:00pm (weather permitting)Open7:30pm to midnight (daily)Last ticket sale: 11:00pm Approximate Touring Time3 hoursAdmissionSGD 20 adults,...Read More
