After that tiring shopping spree at Bugis Street, we headed for another adventure at the Singapore Night Safari. To get there, one has to take a bus that traverses the same route going to Singapore Zoo.

There is this statue near the entrance and we just had to take a picture with it.

After buying your tickets, head to the Tram Station to board the little tram that would take you around the whole jungle.

I do not have pictures of the Safari ride because flash photography is highly prohibited; the flash could startle the nocturnal animals around so you’ll just have to take my word for it – IT WAS AMAZING! I say it was the perfect way to end that tiring day as all we needed to do was sit back, relax, and take in the beauty of the jungle at night.

At the onset, I was skeptical if the animals were really alive and not just some real-animal-looking-mechanical-things. Upon closer look, they ARE real! They move around silently, minding their own business. Because the animals are free to roam around, not seeing them in their designated area was not a cause for panic. As the guide said, you have to keep your eyes peeled as you never know where the animals are. It’s amazing how the animals are so tamed! I kept wondering if an animal has ever gotten astray and had a fight with the other more territorial animals. LOL.

After the safari ride, we were just in time for a live animal show. They trained these nocturnal animals to do cute tricks for the audience. At one point, the host announced that one of their pets have gone missing and that we all had to check under our seats if it was there. Then they asked one certain person to stand from his seat because they think the pet could be under his chair. And indeed, it was there! It was a huuuuuuge python which needed to be carried by 5 assistants! WTF right?

Anyway, we headed for dinner after the show. There were a good number of restaurants near the entrance but we chose to eat at Bongo Burgers. We had some deeeee-leee-cious pasta and chicken. Omnomnom!


They served their drinks in these cute little jars. So cool! Their plates also had interesting animal patterns.



Ate Diane noted that it’s the best chicken she’s ever had in Singapore, so far. Pretty dope, huh?

The next day, we went back the same route to visit Singapore Zoo.
