Doin the Tourist thing

Do you like animals? Do you wish that you could see them in the wild? Do you get frustrated when you go to the zoo and you have to use your camera zoom lens just to get a closer glimpse of the animal hidden at the back of its cage? Then, seriously, you need to check the Singapore Night Safari out out.

I went last night as a part of my effort to see the city's main attractions before I leave Singapore. I don't know how the zoo here has set things up so smoothly, but it's unlike any zoo I've been to before. Cages are more like habitats - very few (if any) signs of cages and fences.
Even with the lions
and the rhino's,
it feels as though you are right in the same field as the animals (indeed, sometimes you are). Somehow, animals are all in an easy to see location - sometimes sleeping - but nevertheless visible. It was amazing. A great way to spend a night in Singapore. My only wish is that I would have taken more time - I could have easily spent 3 more hours there.

I also checked out the Singapore flyer - a the city's version of the London eye.
A pretty way to see the city, though slightly less impressive than the zoo! It was a tough act to follow.
