Singapore Zoo

One of the world's best

What we say: 4.5 stars

Lush gardens and enclosures that use natural barriers instead of bars make the Singapore Zoo one of the most beautiful and modern in the world.

The zoo's most-celebrated creatures include the orangutans and white tigers, but the real highlight is the uniquely Southeast Asian species like Malay mouse deer, big-nosed proboscis monkeys and Komodo dragons. Education is a major goal and zoo keepers give informative talks and feeding time demonstrations throughout the day.

The Singapore Zoo is huge so it's worth investing in a hop-on-hop-off tram ticket (S$5/S$2.50) to save yourself really sore feet the next day. Food stands and water fountains are plentiful and there's a splash-park for kids to cool off.
