Tuck away from the bustle and hustle of usual Singapore streets is a small farm in its simplicity.
If you are looking for some Kampong feel, with chickens running around at your feet, and seeing your kids babbling to little animals, you must visit this place – The Animal Resort.
The first time we brought the little ones here was 5 years ago. And lately, we visited this place once again to let the children come close to nature and feed the animals.
When you enter the gate of The Animal Resort, you will feel that you have come to Singapore in her early days in a rural setting. The unmistaken animal smell tells us that we are in the right place. We always come on a weekend, and we see many families bring their children to experience the Kampong life here.
There is an open hut that offers tired legs a rest and others to enjoy some old style coffeeshop snacks. Over here, you get to buy food to feed the animals, selling $2 for 3 packets of feeds. You get to choose “2 legged animals” feed or “Horse, rabbit and guinea pigs” feed among a few more types of feeds.
Once you have bought the feeds, head on to the little animals hut to feed guinea pigs, rabbits, birds, etc.
Educational tours: The folks at The Animal Resort conducts school educational tours for group bookings.
