Did you know that there are animal farms in Singapore where you can bring your kids to? 

Besides the more commonly known places like the zoo or the bird park which provide opportunities for the kids to interact with animals, there are also farms for kids to explore – and they boast of educational fun too. 

These farms may not be as big as the ones found in other countries, but they do provide a chance for the kids to get close to the animals and to know more about their origins, habitats and their behaviour. Family outings take a different form as you explore these farms together with your kids. 

Here are 10 animal farms ranging from a goat farm to a garden filled with bees to a fish farm. Have fun exploring!

This is a fish farm that will get both the young and old excited. 

There is longkang fishing in which families can come together and have fun netting fishes at the ‘stream’. The kids can then bring the fish they have caught and care for them at home.  There is also a guided fish farm tour to learn in greater detail about some of the unique fishes that Qian Hu has, their origin and natural habitats. 

If you just need to have your tired feet rejuvenated from all the walking, you can consider the fish spa and treat your feet to a relaxing or perhaps, ticklish session. The Garra Rufa fish thrives on dead skin cells and will help exfoliate your tired feet. 

End the visit with a view of all the colourful and beautiful fishes that Qian Hu houses and be enthralled by them.
