One of the world's best, Singapore Zoo is a verdant wonderland of spacious, naturalistic enclosures, freely roaming animals and interactive attractions. Breakfast with orang-utans, dodge Malaysian flying foxes, even snoop around a replica African village. Then there's the setting: 28 soothing hectares on a lush peninsula jutting out into the waters of the Upper Seletar Reservoir.

There are more than 2530 residents here, and most of them, with the possible exceptions of elephants used in a ride, seem pretty happy. Among the many highlights is the Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife , a morning buffet enjoyed in the company of orang-utans. Come within inches of free-roaming ring-tailed lemurs, lories and tree-hugging sloths at the giant Fragile Forest biodome, or spy on shameless, red-bummed baboons doing things that Singaporeans still get arrested for at the evocative Great Rift Valley exhibit. If you have kids in tow, let them go wild at Rainforest Kidzworld , a wonderland of slides, swings, pulling boats, pony rides and farmyard animals happy for a feed. There's even a dedicated wet-area, with swimwear available for purchase if you didn't bring your own.
