Jurong -
Jurong Town is Singapore's industrial and economic centre which offers some unusual yet enchanting fascination.

The Singapore Science Centre, open Tuesday to Sunday 10.00 am to 6.00 pm, is an amazing complex containing a wide range of interactive exhibits, the Aviation Gallery with displays of the history of flight, and the Omnitheatre, a cinema containing a planetarium-like screen.

Haw Par Villa (previously known as The Tiger Balm Gardens) in Pasir Panjang Road is a surreal ‘Disneyesque’ statue park of Chinese historical and mythological figures, created by the Tiger Balm ointment dynasty.

The Gardens are open everyday from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm.

The Chinese and Japanese Gardens are situated west of the city centre by Jurong Lake. They are connected by a 65 metre or 200 feet ornamental bridge, and are great examples of the skills of oriental landscape gardeners.

The gardens are open everyday from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm. An entry fee is charged.

The Jurong Bird Park located on Jurong Hill (near the Chinese and Japanese Gardens) is sprawled over 49.4 acres or 20 hectares and houses the Southeast Asia’s largest bird collection. There is also the world’s largest walk-in aviary, a nocturnal house and many amazing bird shows.

The park is open Monday to Friday from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm, Saturday to Sunday from 8.00 am to 600 pm. An admission fee is charged.
