    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.

    Up close and personal with the parrots

    by SallyM Updated Aug 22, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jurong Bird park is the largest in Asia. As we are parrot-lovers, was one of the reasons we chose Singapore for our stopover.

    Entry to the Bird Park only was $25 each, or $30 including a tram ride. With Singapore Airlines boarding passes we got entry for both of us with tram ride for $51. I wouldn't have bothered with the tram ride if it hadn't been for this offer. The distances in the park are easily walkable - though the tram is probably good for children, as the heat can be tiring.

    At the entrance is an opportunity to be photographed with parrots, but we didn’t bother with this as you need to pay extra and we have quite a lot of photos of ourselves with parrots already. Passing Macaw Island and Flamingo Pool, decided to make for one of the walk-through aviaries as these are much bigger and better than any we had been to before. The walk took us past Songbird Terrace, where you can have ‘lunch with the parrots’ but our experience in the Orinoco Delta had convinced me that mealtimes and parrots are not a good combination.

    The Waterfall Aviary is a multilevel walk through enclosure with guinea fowl, spreo starlings, crowned pigeons and all sorts of other birds which were incredibly frustrating to try to photograph. Next, we visited the Jungle Jewels enclosure, where the conures were slightly more obliging about staying still. The highlight was the Lory Loft, another multilevel enclosure where you can buy a pot of food for $3 and the lories eat out of your hand.

    In the afternoon we watched a free flying parrot show. This was excellent and educational. The performers included hornbills and toucans as well as parrots and cockatoos. The ‘tricks’ the birds performed were aimed at demonstrating natural behaviours, rather than simply entertaining an audience.

    After the show we took our tram ride back up to visit the toucan and hornbill aviaries. They have had a successful hornbill breeding programme and have released some into the wild, including in the park area. We saw a couple of wild hornbills visiting a friend in the aviary. Also walked through bird of paradise enclosure – another walk through aviary.

    Our visit finished with the 'World of Darkness' owl exhibit - the only part of the bird park that didn’t work too well.

    On our way out we stopped at the Hawk Café for a drink. Although we didn’t eat here the food options looked good. Generally the catering outlets in the park were better than those I have seen in zoos and bird parks in the UK.

    We spent the best part of a day here - there is a lot to see and do.

    Jurong Bird Park

    by barbskie Updated Nov 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Spend a part of the day here. A world's largest walk-in aviary. Among the best aviaries in the world, the 20+ hectare park is home to 9,000 or so birds from over 600 species. There are some excellent exhibits, shows about every half hour, and more to take in than a one day visit allows. The park is also handicapped accessible and very relaxing. Worth visit for both young and old.

    Asia Pacific's largest and most impressive bird park, the Jurong BirdPark is home to over 8,000 birds from 600 species around the world.
    So far, my family has visited it around 3 times, all of which was great (especially for the kids)!!
    There are a lot of shows to watch, like the "Fuji World of Hawks Show", featuring more than 50 birds!

    FLOWER'S AT JURONG BIRD PARK

    by balhannah Written Nov 19, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On arriving at Jurong Bird Park Entrance, I couldn't believe how beautiful they had made the Entrance way to the Admission booths.
    At the very start, there a Macaw's sitting on a perch where you can have your photo taken by another family member for FREE.
    Then, it's time to walk to the entrance underneath arches that are loaded with Orchid's in bloom, it was absolutely stunning! If you don't have a chance to see the Orchid's at the Botanical garden's, then these would be the next best.
    Once inside, the garden's are well maintained, and there were more lovely Flower display's.
    They really know how to make a place pleasing on the eye's!

    Starlings Show

    After seeing the waterfall, do not go back !. Turn left passing a bridge and you will see one of the most interesting attractions of the Bird Park - The Starlings. They are small beautiful African Birds. At about 10 AM is the Starlings feeding time. You can hold a cup containing live mealworms in your hand and feed them . It's very exciting !

    Jurong Falls - Is it the tallest ?

    by Ausviet Written May 19, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People usually think that Jurong Falls (in the BIrd Park) is the tallest man-made waterfall in the world. However, I searched on the internet and found out that the largest (and tallest) waterfall in the world is in China (built in 2002). The thing is that one was built in front of a hotel so it looks obviously artificial. Jurong Falls was built in a natural setting so it looks more beautiful. If you take a photo of someone standing on the bridge with the Jurong Falls in the background, who will think that waterfall is a man-made one ?

    Jurong Birdpark 1

    by wufei Written Feb 20, 2005

    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.

    ANIMAL & BIRD ENCOUNTER'S

    by balhannah Written Nov 17, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was another area that I think children would love, even Adult's.

    It is a sale's pitch.....Have your photo taken with a Bird or Animal for a price, but it is done nicely.
    There was nothing to stop me or you from taking photo's of the Bird's or Animal's on display, in my case, it was Bird's.

    There were big, brightly coloured 'fake' Bird's sitting on the branches and the real ones. Of course, the bright Macaw was featured, and so were some Australian Parrot's.

    Admission is free
    There are daily show's from 12 - 5.30pm

    12pm - 12.15pm Close encounter with green iguanas, Burmese rock pythons and water monitor lizards.
    12.30pm - 12.50pm Primate Encounters - pig tailed macaques.
    2pm - 2.15pm Lorikeet Feeding at the Bird Aviary
    3pm - 3.15pm Close Encounters with Pig Tailed Macaques
    3.30pm - 4pm Bird Encounters Engage in conversation with our incredible talking birds!

    Getting to the waterfall

    by Ausviet Written May 14, 2006

    Most guidebooks recommended the man made Jurong Falls as the best thing to see in Jurong Bird Park, so it may be the first thing you look for upon arriving at the Park. It's not easy because the waterfall is located at the very end of the Park and the Park is very big.That's why my son was very excited when we found it finally ! You need to keep checking the signs or map (it's called Waterfall Aviary in the Park Map). Don't forget to check the Show Time first, otherwise you may miss the show while looking for the waterfall.

    The wonderful world of birds

    by foxie Written Jul 22, 2004

    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.
