Since the Singapore Zoo was then spectacular on our final trip, nosotros decided to catch the Singapore River Safari this trip. It is a novel exhibit, operated yesteryear the same grouping that runs the zoo. Everything was decked out for Chinese New Year. Beautiful!
Many photograph opportunities! We had to induce got advantage, of course.
They likewise induce got a panda exhibit at this park. (But, this was the most active panda nosotros saw!)
The decorative entrance was in all probability the best affair nigh this park!
There was a boat ride through 1 of the areas, called Amazon River Quest. The advertising was a chip misleading though. They actually larn inwards await amazing, which it was not. There were dissimilar animate beingness pens to sentiment from the (7 minute) boat ride. This is the flick from their advertising….
This is the actual boat ride. See whatever difference?
There were covered walkways throughout the entire common which were nice, pelting or shine.
One of the 2 panda bears.
There were lots of interactive exhibits. The girls liked how this statue showed the size of an adult together with a baby panda.
The premise of the park is of showing the dissimilar river ecosystems of the world. Amazon, Mississippi, Nile, etc.
The manatee tank was pretty cool.
We loved this opened upward monkey enclosure, every bit well. It’s similar you lot go inwards the monkey’s cage amongst them.
But, our overall experience, was that it was non worth the money. We spent solely 2 hours together with saw absolutely everything. 85 dollars subsequently nosotros nonetheless needed an activity for the residue of the day. So, nosotros went to Chinatown for lunch.
We decided to swallow inwards a house that was packed, every bit a guide to quality. Oddly enough, it ended upward beingness the exact house nosotros ate final trip, amongst the amazing dim sum. We enjoyed it again! We got an egg tart from a street bakery afterwards. Ella chose a banana tart, which was basically similar banana breadstuff cooked inwards a pastry crust. The residue of us got the egg tart, a custard-like filling inwards a pastry crust. Can’t become incorrect there!
Next up was the Orchard Road district of Singapore. This is an expanse of real fancy together with upscale shopping. There were lots of beautiful decorations upward for Chinese New Year. 2014, the yr of the horse.
I idea this street side McDonalds was great. It was across from the regular McD’s together with was simply a small, accessible, drink/dessert station. Brilliant!
We kept noticing large crowds of people surrounding these H2O ice cream carts. Upon closer inspection people were carrying away breadstuff wrapped H2O ice cream! I had to drive one.
There are some interesting flavors here, but the girls made me remove mint chip.
The human cutting off a slab of H2O ice cream from the carton, together with literally wrapped it inwards a slice of “Wonder” type bread.
This is literally an ice cream sandwich! Haha! It was interesting. Not bad, but I don’t know that I volition drive it at dwelling menage anytime soon.
As nosotros walked dorsum to our hotel from the prepare station, nosotros saw these monkeys jump on to the trash can, opened upward the lid (with ease!), tip the tin over together with commencement rummaging through the trash. What a mess! We had been warned that the monkey’s tin hold upward real aggressive, then nosotros did non stick around long, but it was fun to see.
And then concluded our trip, nosotros thought……
