Accidental Tourist - Farm Visits in Singapore

I decided to bring my kiddos to a farm visit over National Day weekend. To be frank, they were initially reluctant to go as they would prefer spending the afternoon holed up in a shopping centre or so. But I was insistent & they relented. 

To make things more palatable for them, I asked each to choose 1 location that they wanted to go around the same area. It was the frog farm (Jurong Frog Farm @ 56 Lim Chu Kang Lane 6; for my boy and the aquarium (Hausmann Marketing Aquarium @ No 291 Neo Tiew Crescent, ( LCK 113 ) Singapore 718903, for my girl. 

The kids managed to get some fishing time at the aquarium that allowed for them to fish using their nets & return the guppies back to the lokangs where they came from. This arrangement suited me fine as I didn’t want the fish to die en-route back home. 

In between, we managed to pop by the Goat Farm (Hay Diaries, No. 3 Lim Chu Kang, Agrotech Park Lane; and dunked in 2 bottles of goat’s milk each before taking a short walk around the farm. For a complete listing of what you can do in this location, access for more info. Here are some shots of the locations. All in all, a good day out for the kids & myself of course!
