After our Tiong Bahru breakfast feast, we were ready to take on the day. We hopped in a cab and headed to Jurong Bird Park, one of the Wildlife Reserves Singapore properties – like the zoo!
Jurong Bird Park is Asia’s largest bird pack, spanning 20.2 hectares of land that is home to over 3,500 birds. The over 400 different bird species that inhabit Jurong Bird Park range from penguins to endangered sun conures.
The park boasts multiple different bird habitats each simulating the real wild of those locations and communities. Guests are invited to walk past cages of lories and in through free-flight aviaries, where 600 birds fly around you, some even coming down to land next to you and sip water out of your cup!
We stopped in at the Bird Show to see Amigo sing happy birthday in THREE languages (apparently he is the only bird in the world who is tri-lingual) and walked every walking path possible.
A wonderful place to bring the family on a weekend, we strolled through rainforest and water parks and were surprised at every turn.
We finished up at Jurong and took a cab to Mount Faber park to take the cable car over to Sentosa island. We had been saving the cable car for a friend’s visit and Giove was the perfect guest to enjoy it!
The Sentosa cable car is SGD 30 per person for 1 round trip ticket. It is not possible to buy a 1-way which is unfortunate as we really only wanted to ride it once and didn’t end up taking it on the way back!
We walked to Tanjong Beach Club so Giove could see what a Singapore beach looked like (man-made and not anywhere comparable to some of the gorgeous beaches in southeast Asia but still a nice place to relax)
and then raced home in time to catch the sunset on the roof. More in the next post!
