Singapore Zoo formerly known as the Singapore Zoological Gardens and commonly known locally as the Mandai Zoo, occupies 28 hectares on the margins of Upper Seletar Reservoir within Singapore’s heavily forested central catchment area according to Wikipedia. It is located at 80 Mandai Lake Road Singapore, 729826.
Great for family recreation just don’t forget to bring hats, towels, waters and other essentials. Best to come earlier to fully enjoy the zoo, since we came in late in the afternoon most of the animals were already resting. Based on the map, it will definitely take a day to visit the whole zoo not to mention other shows and activities happening inside.
There is no nearest MRT station in the area so I would recommend to take a cab/taxi to get here, fare would be 20-30 SGD depends on your location. They however do have the Singapore Attraction Express that provides Direct Express Bus Services to and from most hotels and various locations in the city and Singapore Zoo. Check your hotel if they have this service.
Admission fees are 33 SGD for Adults, 22 SGD for children 3-12 years of age and 15 SGD for Senior Citizens. Enjoy FREE admission to the Zoo 7 days from your birthday when you enter with a paying guest as of August 2016.
Zoo operating hours from 8:30am to 6pm. Ticketing counter operating hours from 8:30am to 5:30pm. From Monday till Sunday.
