    Panorail (Monorail) - It's worth the extra money !

    by Ausviet Written May 8, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you buy a ticket to get into the Bird Park, you have to pay extra ($4 for adult, $2 for children) if you want to take a monorail ride (they call it panorail there). I think it's worth the extra money because the Bird Park is very good to look from above. After spending nearly 2.5 hours in Jurong Bird Park we decided to take a panorail ride and then go home. It was funny that during the ride we found that there were some interesting looking areas in the Park that we had not seen before!.

    The Jurong Birdpark would give you the chance to see a display of birds in natural settings. Most of the birds are colorful and nice to see. Not to be missed are the Jurong Falls, the All Star Bird Show, and the penguins.

    Worth a Day at this Park

    by tophat30 Written Jun 10, 2005

    Jurong Bird Park

    It's very much worth to spend a day in this park. Make sure you don't miss the Birds of Prey show at 1000 at the Fuji Hawk Walk. It's very entertaining apart from educational. Also make sure that you see the largest man made waterfall in the world. It's in the waterfall aviary at the furthest North of the park.

    With the birds

    world's largest man made waterfall

    If you enjoy watching birds-this is a great diversion in Singapore. There are lots of birds from all over the world that make their home here. My favorite part is the large aviary-which has the world's largest man made waterfall.

    In the aviary, birds fly freely. You can even put some mealworms in your hand (for a small fee) and watch as the birds swoop down and grab them.

    Great for kids.

    Jurong Birdpark 1

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of Asia Pacific's largest and most impressive bird parks, Jurong BirdPark offers visitors an experience that is entertaining as well as educational. Its landscaped environment is home to over 8,000 birds from 600 species, displayed in huge enclosures. The bird shows at the Pools Amphitheatre featuring flamingoes, macaws, hornbills and cockatoos are both spectacular and funny, and recommended particularly for children. To watch magnificent birds of prey in action, catch the 'Fuji World of Hawks' show!

    The Penguin Parade enclosure, in a re-created Antarctic setting, houses more than 200 penguins of five species. Within the Penguin Parade enclosure, there are some 50 other sea-birds such as the inca terns and puffins. Another highlight is the colourful Hornbills and Toucans exhibit, the world's largest collection of Southeast Asian Hornbills.

    The Southeast Asian Birds Aviary houses in its 24 individual aviaries and a main walk-in aviary, more than 100 species of birds from the equatorial jungles of Southeast Asia. The birds' natural equatorial habitat is re-created within this exhibit, including simulated tropical thunderstorms everyday at noon. Another walk-in aviary not to be missed is the Waterfall Aviary, home to more than 1,500 free-flying African birds.

    The BirdPark added yet another feather to its cap with the addition of The Riverine - a simulated natural freshwater river habitat featuring over 20 species of ducks, fishes and turtles.

    The best way to start a tour of the BirdPark is to board the modern, air-conditioned panorail system. Its route covers the entire Park, providing excellent elevated views of the various exhibits.

    Getting there

    Take the MRT to Boon Lay Station and transfer to SBS number 194 or 251 at the Boon Lay Bus Interchange.

    If you are driving,

    * From AYE, use Exit 17.
    * From PIE, use Exit 36. Turn left into Jalan Bahar towards the direction of Jalan Boon Lay. Turn right at Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim to reach BirdPark.

    Big Bird!

    While strolling along the foreshore heading from the Merlion to Boat Quay, Anne and I stumbled upon this big bronze bird. The plaque advises that the United Overseas Bank commisioned an artist I have never heard of (Botero) to create this huge sculpture symbolising hospitality and friendship.

    Up close and personal, Jurong Bird Park

    Even if you`re not into birds, you`ll have an enjoyable time at Jurong Bird Park. I was half-hearted about going but it ended up being a great day out.

    There are numerous shows and demonstrations throughout the day. The two most popular shows are the "Birds of Prey Show" (10am and 4pm) and the "All Star Bird Show" (11am and 3pm).

    One thing not be missed is the "Lory Loft", where you can walk out on a platform among 1000 lorikeets inside a massive aviary. There`s a neat little cafe beside it too....

    The wonderful world of birds

    by foxie Written Jul 22, 2004
    Who's watching whom?

    If you're a bird lover or even just curious, defintely check out Jurong Bird Park. A little out of the way of the city center, but well worth it!

    They have birds from all over the world, and of course the Waterfall Aviary is not one to miss. Like the zoo, the animals here are very well taken care of and healthy creatures. Great for kids and adults alike. Do be warned though, that the individuals who feed the animals wear while polo shirts, so if you wear one (like Stephen did by accident) you may get some rather persistant attention.

  • Don't miss the Birds!

    by fellman01 Written Apr 18, 2004

    If you enjoy the sights and sounds of birds this is a must see activity. The Bird park contains some beautiful trails and wonderful birds from around the world. The birds are well described and there is enough staff around to ask questions.

    Try and catch some of the shows. They are not natural but do demonstrate the skills of well trained birds. They are also fun.

    If you can arrive early for the Breakfast with the Birds. The prices are not too bad, the food is good, and the avian company is wonderful.
