I have to say “sounds like the zoo would have been fun” because we never actually saw it. Except from the outside.
The city was covered with thick, choking smoke, so we thought we’d be brave and visit the Singapore Zoo for its world famous Night Safari. They promote it as “Singapore’s Wildest Night Spot” and you get to see all the nocturnal animals that are usually sleeping during the day.
Here we are when we arrived, eager to take the night safari. Then we tried to buy tickets.
Hundreds, maybe thousands of people were milling around, but they wouldn’t sell another ticket unless the reading went below 300. As you can see in this photo, the reading stubbornly stayed over 300. We hung around for a couple hours, but it never dropped, so we eventually gave up and caught a taxi back to our hotel.
