What ever your opinion is about zoos one thing people can get onboard with is the message of conservation that most zoos preach. It also helps to give kids an appreciation of what’s outside early on in life. If you go to Singapore and you have kids one thing you probably should do is go the their zoo. The http://www.zoo.com.sg offers not only general admission in the day time but also a nighttime zoo, a river ride zoo and a bird park. Though we didn’t do the river or bird park, I’ve heard good things.
On a family trip, we brought along our canon 5D Mark III and trusty GoPro Hero 4 to document the trip. Here are some of the photos and video we took.
The best exhibit at this zoo in my opinion is the Orangutan enclosure, if you can call it an enclosure. The orangs have a “free roaming” enclosure which means they can cross over into other areas of the park via a network of overhead ropes and access the tops of a couple huge trees. It’s amazing to watch how high they let them go up.
Though I can’t recommend riding elephants, it was fun to see my niece and nephew’s reaction to feeding them.
