The Animal Resort (Seletar West Farmway)

My colleagues and I were talking about where to go with our children during weekends or holidays. It seemed that I was the last person in the group who had not brought my children to The Animal Resort

Located at Seletar West Farmway 5, The Animal Resort is a hidden gem that our urban children can experience the rural side of Singapore. And guess what, the admission is FREE!

The wooden house with rabbits and guinea pigs caught the children's attention when we entered The Animal Resort. They ran towards the little house and were very excited to see their favourite animals!

"May we feed them?" The children remembered the great experience they had in Taiwan Flying Cow Ranch and Hong Kong Go Green Organic Farm, they were eager to feed the animals again.

No worries about getting the animals' feed, there is a stall selling the feed at S$1 per pack or S$2 for every 3 packs (except horse feed)! The stall sells mosquito repellent and patches too. 

We bought 3 types of feed, one for fish, one for 2-legged animals, and one for rabbits + guinea pigs. And then, the children spent 1 hour feeding the animals.

As the children were busy feeding the animals, I rested on the swing under a big tree... and received some golden blessings from the birds.

Finally, the children finished feeding the animals, we continued to explore other part of The Animal Resort, and the children were thrilled to see a playground!

I was really thankful that there were shades everywhere.

Suddenly, a crowd gathered in front of the cage of peacocks and peahens. Wow! We were lucky to see the peacock showing off its beautiful tail! 

It turned its back towards the crowd, trying to show off but not too show off. 

We visited the horse and parrots too.

Other than the opportunity to feed the animals, another thing I like about The Animal Resort is the presence of informative signs which educate us more about the animals.

Don't forget to wash your hands after feeding the animals! It is so thoughtful to them to have a sink for children!

Our children enjoyed this place very much! As we were leaving the place, they asked, "Can we come back again after lunch?"
