Singapore Zoo is recognized as one of the best in the world due to its concept of openness. In the zoo there are no cells. They are replaced by artificial barriers – water ditches, logs, ditches. Due to the fact that animals are not closed in the space, they show their natural habits. You can even have breakfast with monkeys or feed a giraffe.
