With the development of the economy, the inclusion of the state in the Four Tiger economies of Asia, the rapid development of technology, Singapore is not only one of the most important business destinations, it is also an interesting place that can be explored with ease. With the highly developed transport system, exploring the capital and visiting the various attractions is an easy venture, especially given the small geographical size of the country. Businessmen visiting the city for work will find that a Singapore is replete with attractions and distractions that are ideal as a short break from the hectic work life. Since its introduction, things to do in Marina Bay have been numerous from visiting the Marina Bay Gardens to viewing the Super Trees, but a novel experience is surely the River Safari.

While those staying in resorts such as The Westin Singapore can arrange to have a visit to this theme park organised, it is worth noting that it is unlike any other theme park. The River Safari actually operates as a zoo and is, in fact, the fourth zoo in Singapore along with the Singapore Zoo, the Night Safari and the Jurong Bird Park.

Opened officially in 2014, the River safari is home to over five thousand animals that live across thirty acres. The most exciting are the theme park rides which would be particularly enjoyed by children. The most famous boat ride is the Amazon River Quest where patrons can embark on a thrilling journey down the river and witness numerous species that from the Amazon River. Opened in 2013, the Amazon River Quest allows patrons to witness Collared peccaries, Jaguars, Maned Wolves, Giant Anteaters, Scarlet Ibis and many more wildlife species.

The River Safari theme park is an exciting venture for both families travelling with children and those travelling for business as it provides all with an excellent distraction from the stresses of life.
