Singapore River Safari

It is wonderful that the River Safari was sited in a Safari-like river (the Upper Seletar Reservoir) surrounding. The openness of the area is refreshing - especially on a rainy morning which we were caught in. 

But that didn't quite spoil our plans, for the attraction is well-linked with covered walkway which kept us safely sheltered. 

River Safari isn't just about Kai Kai and Jia Jia. It does more about educating the effects of pollution, habitat destruction and overfishing that is making some of our river fishes critically endangered. 

The many large aquariums here are calming and pleasurable to watch as we observed the relaxing stroke of the fishes while we were entertained with the thought of meeting the world's largest freshwater aquarium..

 Tank of the Giant Siamese Carp, Mekong Giant Catfish and Giant Freshwater Stingray.

Tank of the Giant Manatees

Tank of the Giant Manatees is the most captivating display at River Safari - housed in the world's largest aquarium. Their graceful wading is amazing for the heavy creature!

Forgoing with working the camera, i was just watching; sitting down and simply watching them... 

Kai Kai in Pool (Jia Jia no show)

Panda Pau, red bean paste ($2.90)

The pandas are interesting to watch... but i have a deeper impression of the Panda Buns from the Mama Panda Kitchen in the River Safari, than watching Kai Kai, Jia Jia.

Your last dollar deserves this pretty and ultra soft Dou Sa Bao! Eveyone wanted one for themselves, so we bought this many ")
