Singapore Zoo

I am an animal lover. Every country I go to, I make sure to visit their zoo. One thing I love about Singapore zoo is that, almost all their animals are not caged. They are the world-famous “open concept” zoo. Except for the reptiles and the polar bear, the animals are free in their natural habitat.

I bought our Singapore Zoo tickets via Klook. img_1093.png


You don’t have to fall in line and wait for a long time, hassle free. You will receive the confirmation email with the e-voucher and instructions are there, like the one below.


To know the directions and routes going to the zoo, make sure to download this app. It was very helpful, even the schedules of the bus and trains are there.



You have to take the Mandai Express Bus going to Singapore zoo. Fare is $1 Singaporean Dollar per way. You can use your EZ-Link card or buy ticket at the zoo.IMG_20180203_155605_363

Last but not the least, the KING of Singapore Zoo. This is Inuka, a 27 year old polar bear. In human years, he’s already 70 years old. He’s being supervised 24/7 as he can’t be left alone.C360_2018-02-03-11-57-21-355C360_2018-02-03-11-59-00-119

And now, the reptilesC360_2018-02-03-11-41-27-025C360_2018-02-03-11-45-07-628C360_2018-02-03-11-48-23-840


There are other animals like kangaroo, penguins, squirrels and more. There are also shows for kids to enjoy.

Travel Tips:

  • The zoo is huge, so make sure to wear comfortable clothes. My personal suggestion – T-shirt, shorts and sneakers
  • It is hot!!! Bring a cap or hat, fan and extra shirt/s
  • Bring water, there are refillable stations so no worries
  • Do not touch the animals
  • Do not feed the animals (although there are certain animals that you can feed as long as the food is bought from the zoo)
  • Don’t take photos with flash, it’ll hurt their eyes
  • Take your time, I think 4-5 hours should be spent in this zoo to see and enjoy everything


Oh by the way, I did 25,000 steps that day and I tracked it using my Fitbit 2. Do I look tired?😂C360_2018-02-03-11-31-55-061
