Get up close and personal with your favourite animal
Here’s a way to combine fun and learning: while you interact with animals, get to learn more about their origins and other facts at the following places that are perfect for any animal lover!
To learn more about what was – for most of us – our first pet and their relatives, take a trip to The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum. During your visit, you can hope that the luck and wealth, which is symbolised by the Sulcata Tortoise and the Golden Temple Turtle respectively, will rub off on you!
The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum even holds a turtle race every weekend to prove that contrary to popular belief, your terrapin does not belong in a moral story!

3. For Pawsitive Energy
At Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa, pawrents can attend cat care workshops to learn how to take good care of your furkid – from feline socialisation to food and nutrition. Otherwise, cat lovers can visit for a relaxation session. However, do take note of the cafe rules to ensure the well-being of all 13 cats – three pairs of which are siblings!
Having expanded the furmily with rescue cats, Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa comes with a vital message: adopt, don’t shop!

4. Take A Breathtaking Flight
Source: Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom
Did you know that a butterfly’s wings are waterproof? Typically, there is less awareness of them as compared to their vertebrate counterparts, so the Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom is one of the few avenues in sunny Singapore to educate yourself on the beautiful butterflies and insects such as beetles, stick insects, and even scorpions!
Go down to the Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom to revisit your childlike wonder amidst the sights, sounds, and scents of nature!
