Jurong Bird Park is a unique experience, because they have designed the place to include many free flight aviaries, which allows you to get right next to many species of birds. But even in their normal non-free flight enclosures, you can still get pretty close to the birds.

Jurong Bird Park also has the world's largest man-made waterfall, in the African Waterfall Aviary. Be sure to explore the upper levels, where you'll be able to see various species of African Birds.

Another highlight of the Jurong Bird Park is their Lory Loft, which features 2 suspension bridges, and many colourful, friendly Lories that will perch on you if you allow it (and if you feed them).

Some of the best chances you'll have to see the main species of birds featured at the Jurong Bird Park is in their shows. Kings Of The Skies Show (10am and 4pm) showcases various birds of prey, and demonstrates their hunting abilities. Birds N Buddies Show (11am and 3pm) showcases the more friendly, and domesticated types of birds, including macaws, flamingos and pelicans. The star of the show is Amigo, a singing parrot that speaks 3 languages!

Personally, my favourite enclosure at the Jurong Bird Park is probably the Penguin Coast. Being able to see the different penguins, and even puffins, in a 'natural' enclosure, up-close, was amazing.

However, one thing I felt that Jurong Bird Park could do better, is housing some species of birds in glass enclosures, instead of metal cage enclosures. This includes the Hornbills & Toucans, Parrots and Birds Of Prey. Visitors can get then have a clearer view of the birds through the glass.

If you're planning a visit, do note that admission fees cost $18, and allocate between 2 to 5 hours for viewing.
