Best time to visit the Singapore Zoo

Weekday vs Weekend

Like all the major tourist attractions, the footfall at the Singapore Zoo is higher during the weekends compared to the weekdays. Consider visiting the attraction on a weekday to stay clear from the weekend rush and enjoy the Singapore Zoo at a comfortable pace. 








Very Crowded

Peak season vs Low season

The period between March and August, which is also Singapore’s dry season, sees relatively less rainfall and the most sunshine. A visit to the Singapore Zoo during the dry season ensures you do not have to worry about Singapore’s infamous rains and sultry weather. That said, you should always be prepared for an occasional downpour and light showers; in short, Singapore’s unpredictable weather.
