I’ve visited Singapore times unnumbered, but last week’s visit to the zoo in that country was my first.
I recognise that the concept of a zoo doesn’t suit everyone and it doesn’t suit me either when the animals are caged in small enclosures. But here the animals move around freely.
We started the day with breakfast in the company of some orangutans. It’s hard to comprehend that without zoos such as this, orangutans may well disappear from the face of the earth as their natural habitat continues to be eroded.
My fictional cruise line will give its newest ship its maiden voyage in the Australia, New Zealand, and southern Asia routes. This quick trip to Singapore en route to our Dublin-Barcelona cruise, provided a refresher for things to do in that part of the world.
City of Asian delights:
shopping and zoo,
chili crab, Singapore sling!
