Take the day to play at these family-friendly funspots.
The 64-acre Singapore Zoo features 2,800 animals with 300 species of mammals, birds and reptiles to delight in. Early risers can indulge in Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife, a buffet alongside free-ranging orangutans and discover Rainforest Kidzworld—with a wet play area and ponies to ride.
