Nestled in 40 hectares of lush secondary forest, the Night Safari offers guests the unique experience of exploring wildlife in a tropical jungle at night. Through the use of subtle lighting technique, guests are able to view over 1,000 nocturnal animals of 100 species in vast naturalistic habitats.|
|Singapore Botanical Gardens. The Singapore Botanical Gardens sweep across an area of 52 hectares constituted by primary forest and specialty gardens in close proximity to the city centre. The park contains many rare plant specimens in addition to the specialty gardens decorated with frangipanis, roses, ferns and desert plants. Outdoor concerts in the gardens can be enjoyed on the Symphony Lake or French cuisine can be savoured at the Au Jardin restaurant.|
|Jurong Bird Park. The 20.2 hectare open-concept Jurong Bird Park is the largest in the Asia Pacific and one of the finest bird parks in the world. Its collection of more than 9,000 birds from 600 species is among the largest in the world. The Park specialises in birds from Southeast Asia and the more exotic and colourful tropical birds.|
|Asian Civilization Museum. While Singapore's forefathers came to settle in Singapore from many parts of Asia within the last 200 years, the cultures brought to Singapore by these different people are far more ancient. The Museum's collection centers on the material cultures of the different groups originating from China, Southeast Asia, South Asia and West Asia.|
|Fort Canning Park. One interesting attraction in the park is The Battle Box, which is located some 9 meters underground in one of the bunkers. It was the largest military operations complex in Singapore and was part of the Malaya Command Headquarters during World War II. Now it houses the re-enactment of the scene of 15 February 1942, when the British officers made the decision to surrender and Singapore fell to the Japanese.|
