King of skies, a show not to be missed in bird's parkThere is a general perception that Singapore tourism is over rated. What is in Singapore that’s unique? It’s probably smaller than the city you are living now or countries you have already visited. Many call it the microstate of Asia. It does not have cultural monuments like churches of Europe or temples of India, There are no spectacular natural sceneries like that of Holland or Amazon forests, there are no blue beaches and definitely not much history or artefacts to compete with others. But I bet you cannot show me a country with similar background, attracting millions of visitors each year.
Jurong Bird Park has every reason to be number 2 in the countdown. In the last forty years of its existence it has created not just happy customers but a home to more than 8000 birds from 600 different species including some of the most endangered one.
Birds n buddies showThey have many bird shows in different theatres in addition to cages and aviary enclosures. Be there first thing in the morning like a newspaper guy if you want to watch all the shows, feeding times as well as the park. Couple of not to be missed shows are “Birds n Buddies” and “Kings of the Skies”.
The world tallest manmade waterfall is situated in a aviary of the park. Water plunges from 100 feet at 140 liters per second making it perfect place for waterbirds, fishes and plants inside this enclosure.A historical event happened on this November 17th .I know what you are thinking, but hold your horses. 6 new chicks (not that kind though) in the park makes better history than me turning 30. The new hatchings include very exotic and endangered species such as greater flamingo and golden conure. I think that’s win-win situation between man and nature.
