Day 4 Singapore: Jurong Bird Park

We’ve been to different zoos but this was the first time that we’re going to visit a bird park. Jurong Bird Park is a place where you can see 5000 birds across 400 species in the world. You can see them flying, swimming and roaming freely in their naturalistic habitats, including four large free-flight aviaries. There are feeding sessions and bird shows too.



Jurong Bird Park is the only zoo of Wildlife Reserves Singapore that is not located at the Mandai Lake Road Singapore. Travel time from Sheraton Towers SG is 95 min by bus SGD1.76, 75 min by train + bus SGD1.91 and 26 to 30 minutes by taxi SGD20 +. Seventy-five minutes is really long and we need to wake up early just to be there before 10AM so I decided that we will take taxi instead. 

We left at 9:05AM, may tumatanggi din pala na taxi driver sa Singapore. Naka-2 taxi din kami bago may pumayag na ihatid kami sa Jurong Bird Park. The rate of taxi depends on the time of your travel, when I checked gothere.sg, the rate is close to SGD25 but when we reached Jurong Bird Park, I just paid SGD20+. 



And because we took taxi, we’re so early for the King of the Skies Show. Kami talaga nauna na dumating sa Hawk Arena. Hehehe! Click here for the video.

Nice to see the different birds, they are really big. 



After the show, we went to the Penguin Coast for Penguin Encounter. My son enjoyed the penguin feeding for SGD2. Click here for the video

We enjoyed watching Happy Feet movie so we’re so delighted seeing the penguins up close and personal, there are five species at the Penguin Coast.



Then after that, we went to the next show which is High Flyers Show at Pools Amphitheatre. Click here for video

There are only two shows in Jurong Bird Park so do not miss it because this is your chance to take pictures of the birds up close. If you missed the show, you can still see the birds but some birds are inside the cage, so you cannot take a good photo of it. 



We started exploring the different attractions such as Wing Asia, Bird Discovery Center, Junge Jewels, Birds of Prey, Window of Paradise, Hornbill & Toucans, Royal Ramble, Wetlands, Heliconia Walk and Lory Loft. 



You can experience bird feeding for a fee at Lory Loft but I did not pay for this since we already experienced bird feeding at Residence Inn Zoo and Zoobic Safari in the Philippines.



We rode tram to reach Waterfall Station,  SGD5 adult and SGD3 child but since we bought the Park Hopper Plus Tickets, we have unlimited tram ride. There is man-made waterfall where 600-free flying birds are there. Yes, free-flying birds so it is really hard to eat here because the birds go to your table. 



We explored Waterfall Aviary, Dinosaur Descendants, Parrot Paradise, Swan Lake and Pelican Cove



We waited for the Pelican Chit-Chat and paid SGD2 for Pelican Feeding. Remeber the Finding Nemo movie, pelican helped nemo to go inside the dentist clinic. Click here for the video.

Before we left the Waterfall Station, we went to the Bird Feeding at Waterfall Aviary. 



Then we rode tram back to the Main Station. There is Wet Play Area at Birdz of Play but we did not visit it anymore since we wanted to finish everything on the map. 



We visited the Flamingo Pool, Saddlebill, Riverine and last stop is World of Darkness. We've seen flamingo in other zoos pero mas madami dito sa Jurong Bird Park. 

The Jurong Bird Park is not that big compared to Singapore Zoo so we’re done at 3PM. Our favorite here are the two shows, peguin feeding and pelican feeding. 



We went to the bus stop because this time, we’re going to ride bus + train. 75 minutes travel time to hotel. 

Directions: 

1. Walk to the bus stop at Opposire Jurong Bird Park (22019), Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim. 
2. Board Bus 194. Alight at Boon Lay Ineterchange, Jurong West Central 3, 1 stop later.

  20. Singapore really has a lot of interesting places to offer not just for kids. Also, it is near Manila lang and it doesn't really cost an arm and a leg.

    1. Yes, There are so many airlines that fly to SG too and they have seat sales too. :)

  21. They are indeed big birds. Would love to visit that as well when the boys and I travel to Singapore. Surely, its a travel minus my mom because she has no patience walking around a zoo. But she loves walking miles just to shop.

    1. Hahaha! She prefers malls because it is air conditioned so it is more relaxing than zoos.

  22. I'd include this in my itinerary the next time I have a chance to bring the kids to Singapore again. I'm sure they would enjoy!
