Places to Go in Singapore
The Singapore Zoo (Former Singapore Zoological Gardens) is acclaimed as one of the world's most spectacular zoos. The use of natural barriers like streams, rock walls and vegetation to separate animals from visitors enhances the "open" zoo concept. Spreading over 28 hectares, it is home to over 3,600 mammals, birds and reptiles, including rare and endangered species. The Zoo's orang utan breeding programme has created a large community of these gentle, endangered species.

Fort Siloso is the Singapore's only preserved coastal fort stands as an important window to our colonial past and a poignant reminder of the war years. When the British colonized Singapore in the 1870s, the new harbor (Keppel Harbor) saw the expansion of activities that risked being rampaged by invaders and pirates. It was decided that a fort would be sited at the western end of a small island called Pulau Blakang Mati (now known as Sentosa), so Fort Siloso, the first of such fortification, was born.
