The Singapore Zoo is different from any other I've been to. Normally all the surrounding environment has been artificially created. This place seemed more natural as most of the animals were in a natural environment and the monkeys were pretty much free range (except for the baboons).
The heat was quite something and I struggled a bit with the humidity so I did rush around towards the end. On the way out a saw a little spa place tucked away and thought I'd check it out. My feet were killing me after walking for hours in the heat and went for the 10 min fish foot spa followed by a 10 min shoulder massage.
I don't know an awful lot about it's history so this was the ideal place to get some info. It's a great museum spanning all of Singapore very complex history. I didn't actually stay that long though as I was suffering quite badly from the old jetlag.
While I was in the area though, I wanted to have a look at Fort Canning park as it was only round the corner. The map doesn't show that it's on top of a massive hill and if you're not driving it's stairs to the top. I didn't quite make it to the top as the relentless humidity took it's toll and I turned back and headed for some air con.
