Hong Leong Foundation Crimson Wetlands ($0.90)

This aviary provides unobstructed flight paths for the birds and is the only aviary in Bird Paradise that is entirely beamless. Scarlet Macaws, Roseate Spoonbills, Scarlet Ibises and over 40 vibrantly coloured species take flight, creating a truly unique experience.

Kuok Group Wings of Asia ($1.15)

Replicating Bali’s tranquil bamboo groves and serene rice terraces, the rarest spoonbill species – the Black-faced Spoonbill, and one of the world’s most endangered ducks – the Baer’s Pochard, are among more than 30 species from the largest continent found in this aviary. The aviary features Balinese-style open pavilions, with storks and herons foraging in shallow waters and the majestic Papuan Hornbills.

Nyungwe Forest Heart of Africa ($1.50)

This is the largest aviary in Bird Paradise.
