Right beside the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, this new blockbuster wildlife park recreates the habitats of seven world-famous rivers. While most are underwhelming, the Mekong River and Amazon Flooded Forest exhibits are impressive, their epic aquariums rippling with giant catfish and stingrays, electric eels, red-bellied piranhas, manatees and sea cows. Another highlight is the Giant Panda Forest enclosure, home to rare red pandas and the park's famous black-and-whiters, KaiKai and JiaJia.

Young kids will enjoy the 10-minute Amazon River Quest Boat Ride , a tranquil, theme-park style tour past roaming monkeys, wild cats and exotic birdlife. The ride begins with a big splash, so if you're sitting in the front row, keep feet and bags off the floor. Boat ride time slots often fill by 1pm, so go early or purchase tickets online to secure a tour time that suits.
