The direction is still the same since 3 zoos are located at the same place. For directions, we used gothere.sg, travel time is 67 minutes via train and bus. Fare is SGD1.76 each.
1. Walk to Newton Station.
2. Board the train towards Jurong East Station and alight at Ang Mo Kio Station. 5 stations later.
3. Take Exit C and walk to bus stop at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8
4. Board Bus 138 and alight at Singapore Zoological Gardens, 30 stops later.
5. Walk to Singapore Zoological Gardens.
While riding the bus, I was checking the map and I whispered to my son that we will go to Elephants at Work and Play Show first at 11:30AM so we need to walk and run once we alighted so we won’t be late.
It was a loooong walk, we’re all sweating by the time we reached the venue at Elephants of Asia near Tram Station 4. No more vacant seats so we were standing all throughout the show but at least it did not rain. 9 years ago, my husband and I weren’t able to watch the full show because of rain. You can feed the elephants at SGD5 but my son was so scared so he did not try it. Click here for the video.
After the show, we went straight to Shaw Foundation Amphitheatre to watch the Rainforest Fights Back Show at 12:30NN. My son did not agree with me because he wanted to ride Carousel. I told him that he can do that after the show. He asked, why you always like to watch shows? I want Carousel. Nagrereklamo na, puro show na lang daw ako. Hehehe!
I explained to him that shows have specific times that we need to follow, other attractions like carousel ay pwede namin puntahan anytime. Trust me, I know how to manage the time. So we just agree to disagree. Lol
We don’t want to walk anymore so we rode the tram to reach Tram Station 2. You need to pay SGD5 adult and SGD3 for kid. We just showed our ticket because it includes unlimited tram ride.
As I promised, after the show we went to Rainforest Kidzworld so he can ride Wild Animal Carousel. The ride is not free, you need to pay additional SGD4 but since we have the Park Hopper Plus ticket, my son has one free ride. Solo niya tuloy ang ride, mag-isa lang siya sumakay. Hehehe!
Then we ate late lunch at KFC at Kidzworld Pavilion. There is Wet Play Area where your kids can play but we did not plan to spend our time here so we continue exploring the zoo. My son enjoyed feeding the goat here.
From station 2, we just walked to check different attractions till we reach the Frozen Tundra.
We saw the Polar Bear and we enjoyed watching him, ang galing niya magswim. Hehehe! Click here for the video.
We rode tram again so we can rest from walking. I really appreciate the tram ride because Singapore Zoo is so huge and you will really get tired easily if you will just walk and walk. This is a 26-hectare zoo. Waah!
|This is the biggest LIZARD that I've seen, it is called Komodo Dragon|
We just finished everything on the map then we went to the last show (5PM) which is Splash Safari Show at Shaw Foundation Amphitheatre, we're a little bit late because of the tram. (tagal dumating)
Then after the show, we rode tram again back to tram station 1 and off we went home at 5:30PM. It was a long day but we’re happy that we finished everything. We really took our time in exploring the zoo because there was Fire Alarm Testing at the hotel from 2-5PM.
Singapore Zoo has over 2,800 animals, that was really a lot so I did not take a lot of pictures. hehehe! What nice about this zoo is they have open-concept, you don't see animals inside the cages. Some animals are so free that you can see them swinging, lounging or playing around like the orangutans.
Our favorites in Singapore Zoo are Elephants Show, Carousel Ride, Goat Feeding and Polar Bear.
