A bird park is a bird park, you say. Well, actually no. You will see a waterfall in the park, you will ride on a monorail and before you know it - you'll feel like you're in the middle of the jungle. The parrots are well trained. There's even a picnic ground. Quite nice...
Jurong Bird park is the place where you can see the most beautiful birds in the world. They fly, they talk even they sing in different languages. I don't want to say much about it, but trust me, you will regret if you are there in Singapore but you don't visit Jurong Bird Park.

Despite the bird flu scare, this is a wonderful bird park to visit that is unparalleled in Asia. There are giant dome aviaries complete with waterfalls to walk into to see the birds in their natural environment. Over 9,000 birds and 600 species.
My favorites are the birds of paradise, the large collection of hornbille and raptors as well feeding sugar water to countless colorful Australian parrots and parakeets.
There is a monorail that stop. Part of the walk a slight gradient but going around slowly, you will have a wonderful time with or without the children, enjoying a spectacular range of bird species from all over the world.
Jurong Bird Park is a lovely way to spend a few hours. A monorail operates which gives you an overview of the park. From the beautiful bird displays to the lovely landscaping, even if you are not a bird fanatic you will enjoy yourself.
Jurong BirdPark is a 20.2 hectare open-concept park. It is the largest in the Asia Pacific and one of the finest bird parks in the world. Its collection of more than 8,000 birds from 600 species is among the largest in the world. The Park specialises in birds from Southeast Asia and the more exotic and colourful tropical birds.
If you opt to visit Singapore with friends and family then you may want to go to the Jurong Birdpark, Zoo and Night Safari. There is a combined ticket available which gives you admission to all free parks. The ticket without trams inside the parks is about 40 SGD.
The Zoo and Night Safari are next to each other.
Checkout the website before you go there.
The Birds & Buddies show at 3pm was nice to watch.
If you love to take pics of birds then don't miss the Bee-Eater & Starling feeding at 2:30pm.
The closest MRT station is probably Boon Lay Station.
From there I took a cab, didn't want to wait for the next bus.

We went to the Jurong Bird Park last year, I must confess that birds don't really interest me but this place is something else.
Its very big and has a wide range of different species.
I think my fav would have to be the Flamingos, so bright and pink, they looked really pretty on the lake.
The Osteriches are pretty cool, got a pretty cool shot of one staring straight at my camera.
The park also boasts the highed man made waterfall, stretching up to 30 metres high set in the Waterfall Aviary with free flying birds.
Wether you have kids in tow or not, so long as you have a day to spare on your trip to Singapore, this is a must see.
At first, I didn't want to go to a bird park... I didn't want to see birds caged up and all. It took me 5 trips to Singapore before I finally agreed to check it out. BOY, was I wrong. The entire park is a dome! You rarely see cages (only the birds of prey ones are caged...else they'll eat the tinier birds).
I was in a photographers paradise. And I'm just an amateur one! (see my pictures to see why I love my 'models' for the day).
My favorite part here is the Lory bird sanctuary. For a dollar, you can feed these birds. They'll hop onto your hand or arm and feed from the plastic cup given to you. I had one bird in particular that took a fancy to me and stayed ON me the entire 30minutes I was in the Lory place. I believe he wanted my hair accessories. :) Literally, I had tourists all over laughing and smiling at me as I tried to shake my surprise passenger loose.
I was also fortunate at the time to witness the flamingoes being set loose... it was a once in a lifetime thing they did during the Chinese New Year. They had never done it before so I got to be with the flamingoes during their Flamingo parade.
You can spend half a day or the entire day here. Is it worth it? Yes. :)
**if you'll wait for a taxi, might as well call one over (see the numbers at the taxi line). Rarely do taxis go there so you might end up with a bit of a wait. Pay the extra flag down /call fee. It's worth it. :)
Birds.. birds.. and more birds!!! You will be fasinated by the collection of worldwide Birds we have!!
The bird show is very interesting, especially the eagles - Birds of Prey @ 10am & 4pm. I like this show best.
Here you will be able to find teh highest man-
Another touristy place one should not miss.
I had a lot of fun in Jurong Bird Park's Bird's and Buddies Show at 11 am everyday. It gives you a snap shot of all the birds (falcon, macau, parrots, hornbills etc) in this world-class aviary. You can see birds flying through hoops, playing table basketball and singing "Happy Birthday." It's a fun treat for kids and adults like you and me. You can also feed the birds in the walk-in aviary.
Don't miss the photo-opportunity with the birds at the end of the 45-minute show.
Purchase the Hopper Pass $40 and you can visit Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari and the Zoo at discounted rates than if you purchased entrance to these parks separately.
A Singapore experience wouldn’t be complete without a day at the Jurong Bird Park. There, we saw all kinds of birds one couldn’t ever imagine. We first took a monorail ride around the park before we explored the area on our own. At least, that already gave us an idea on how big the place was.
Birds of prey were inside cages while the ones that thrive in wetlands are kept in the open. Try to catch the birds show at the Pools Amphitheatre and the pelicans’ feeding time.
To feed the lories at the Lory Loft. They are my favorites! You don’t have to go after them. They’ll come to you when they see the cup in your hand.
Hey, you should know that:
You’ll remember Happy Feet when you see the Penguins.
The Jurong BirdPark is definitely not a sight, that you can cover in an hour or two. Plan enough time to enjoy all the shows, including being there on time to get a good seat in the shadow! Also take your time to walk around the whole Park. It is really nice, also if you are not that much into birds. Great place for kids, too.
If you are flying in with SQ, make sure you keep and bring your boarding pass. You get a discount!
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.
