Jurong Bird park, Singapore

09 Mar
The Jurong Bird Park was one of the highlights of my Singapore trip … It is one of the world ‘s most renowned bird sanctuaries with some of the largest free flying aviaries …
 
I had been there before on my earlier visits to Singapore but it never fails to charm me and I was as excited as I was on my first visit …
 
 I dragged H early morning and we were probably one of the first few people standing in the ticket line for the day … Bright sunny  morning we were ( or rather I was ) all ready for some real good birdie time … Since there were nice discounts going on we opted for the ‘ Park hopper ‘ option  that got us the tickets for Singapore zoo , Night Safari and The Jurong bird park. Yeaiee … Seeing wildlife and getting discount , my day just got better …
 
 The park is huge and takes almost 4-5 hoursto see it completely … But totally worth it .. There is also an option of taking the tram ride inside which shows you the exhibits from a distance and you get a feel of it … But we preferred walking as then one could actually stand and enjoy the exhibits as long as you can and click pictures too …
 
There are some shows and feeding times where you get to interact with the birds up close n personal … That was super fun …
 
 The park is lush green and you feel like you are walking through a forest filled with bright colorful birds chirping happily and noisily … The waterfall aviary was just amazing … The indoor waterfall is spectacular … The lory loft is this aviary where you can buy a small container of bird feed ( nectar + pollen + water + something else ) hold it in your hand and some really colorful birdies will come to you …but beware these birds make some sudden n loud noises which take you by surprise … I almost dropped my container … But this feeding provides some very interesting photo ops …
 
 There are a lot of interesting exhibits and I can go on and on about it … Oh yeah and they have this place where you can host your wedding reception with the backdrop of some spectacular bright Caribbean flamingos … Wow … Just that itself made me want to get married again n that too in the park … It is just beautiful !!
Hey enough of my talk … Now see the birdies
