Show Times

There’s usually plenty of space on the sides of each arena, but to get the best seats (in the middle or front) arrive 10 minutes before the show start.

Prepare for the Weather 

The rain comes and goes, but for most days, it gets pretty hot and humid in Singapore.

There are areas between exhibits with minimal cover, so wear sunscreen, bring a hat and an umbrella for the unpredictable rain.


There’s a lot of walking during the day, so take advantage of the tram that circles Jurong Bird Park.

Rides are $5 for adults and $3 for children per round trip.

However, if you purchase a hopper pass or Flexi attraction pass, the tram is included.
