White tigers at Singapore Zoo

Your Singapore trip is not complete without a visit to the national zoo. So, last week we took sometime to spend a day at the popular tourist attraction in Singapore. According to estimate, over 1.6 million people visit the zoo each year.

We learnt during the tram ride that this zoo houses the largest captive colony of orangutan in the world. Our Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation centre in Sandakan may be bigger in terms of number of animal as well as land area but our orangutans are not keep in captivity.

This zoo is very well-kept and is easy to get around.

Note: All pictures were captured with smartphone cam, so, pardon the quality.

Wud be good for safari ride but this one is just for show. Not for rent.

You can purchase your entrance ticket to include tram ride. It helps a lot

On another day, you'll see these orangutan doing their 'Tarzan' swing

You can get pretty close to the giraffes
