Jurong Bird Park
Jurong Bird Park Review
The region's leading bird park hosts the largest walk-in aviary in the world, with a 100-foot man-made waterfall (the world's tallest), in addition to another exquisite walk-in, Southeast Asian Birds Aviary, where a tropical thunderstorm is simulated daily at noon. More than 8,000 birds from 600 species are here, including hornbills, hummingbirds, parrots, and penguins. In stark contrast, the view from Jurong Hill is of the factories that crank out Singapore's economic success. For sweeping park vistas, consider taking a 10-minute ride on the Panorail, an air-conditioned monorail train.
If you arrive early, try breakfast at the Lodge on Flamingo Lake or catch the Lory Feeding (the first is at 9) at the huge Waterfall Aviary. The penguins, bee-eaters, and starlings are fed on a regularly scheduled basis at the Waterfall Aviary. There are also feedings in the Southeast Asian Birds Aviary and the Hornbills and Toucans Exhibit. Try to catch the JBP All-Star Bird Show at Pools Amphitheatre. One of the last shows of the day King of the Skies at 4. At the World of Darkness, you can sidle up to such nocturnal birds as owls, night herons, frogmouth, and kiwis.
