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.
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!
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.
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.

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!
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.
If you don't want to spend the whole day in Jurong Bird Parks, I suggest a day trip to Jurong: Try to get to the Bird Park early in the morning so that you won't miss any shows and still have time to see most of the attractions. By lunch time when it's getting hot and you become hungry, leave the Bird Park and go to Jurong Point Shopping Centre (see my tips about this shopping centre in my Singapore travel page) to have your lunch and do some shopping. At the end of the day visit Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden. All these activities can be done in one day easily using public transport (MRT and bus) because these places are all located in Jurong.
