Jurong Reptile Park
This famous reptile park is situated just opposite the Jurong Bird Park. There you see a large variety of about 50 reptilian species living in different landscaped habitats.
A visit to this night zoo at Night Safari is another point of world-class attraction in Singapore. It gives you an opportunity to have an eye-to-eye contact with many wild animals like single-horned rhinoceros; or to come across with a pack of striped hyenas and leopards.
Among them all is the Singapore Zoo which was previously known as Singapore Zoological Gardens. This open-concept zoo is a home to more than 2,000 creatures that attracts a lot of visitors every day. The clever use of rock walls and streams as the natural barriers has won the Singapore Zoo an international acclaim.
