Jurong Bird Park

Jurong bird park is one of world's biggest bird park with over 9000 birds belonging to 600 species. The journey took us almost half hour to 45mins by MRT and bus. This was our first time we were travelling in a public transport in Singapore. This actually helped us get closer to the place . The MRT s during the peak times(in the morning and evening )are usually crowded . We got an ez-link card to travel using the public transport, something abt the ez-link card fascinated me that I brought it along with me :)

Atlast we were there to meet our feathered friends .

We took the mono rail to go around the park . Apart from jus' viewing the birds, the park has a lot of other things like the birds of prey show, birds and buddies show and a lot more. We also got to feed the lorries , thou I was initially scared about the birds sitting on my hand, later it turned out to be fun :)
