My day at the Singapore Zoo

Singapore Zoo is considered to be one of the the most beautiful zoos in the world. They have a huge varity of flora and fauna all over the place. We opted to take thecombo ticket for adults which includes entry to the zoo+bird park and the night safari , tram charges extra.




I spent almost half of my day at the zoo starting from morning till late noon . The animal feeding sessions are one of the most interesting parts. You can also enjoy your breakfast in the wild with the orangutans . I didnt get to enjoy this experience as we reached a lil later than the breakfast time.
One animal that interested me most was the white tiger , it was very active and was indeed the focus of every visitor's attention.


The zoo also had a lot of picturesque places.





As we walked across the primate kingdom I was in for a schol as all the monkeys were in open , all breed all kind. But, believe me they were in their own world and never harmed the visitors. The next time someone comments asking me not to behave like a monkey, guess i should bring them here to show how well behaved they are ;)


The zoo also had animal shows - splash safari show , elephants at work show and a few other. It was interesting to see the animals displaying the skills. For those of you who wanna click pics with these animals, you can at a special charge.


There are also horse and elephant rides which the visitors can opt for . A visit around the zoo with your four legged friend.

A beautiful place to be at if you have a day at your hand and love for animals.

Beautiful pictures and nice place :)

Who can miss the glimpse of the mighty white tigers :) ? You can find plenty of them in Nandankanan Zoo. It’s the place which claims to have produced this species. So you get a chance anytime in future to visit Bhubaneswar, don’t miss it :)
