If there’s something that all locals know and love it’s Singapore’s kampong spirit! Before it became the metropolis that we see today, Singapore was an island filled with kampongs and farms. ?We’ve come a long way since those days. As a way to remember our roots, take your kids for an unconventional day out at these 13 kid-friendly animal farms in Singapore.

1. Gallop Stable

If your kids are fans of horses, then Gallop Stable is a must-visit on this list. For a small cost of pony feed, you’ll get to hand feed the ponies but beware of the ticklish sensation - some saliva might get onto your palm! ?You can also ride horses here! There are guides who’ll escort you as you circle the perimeter of the stable. You might want to hold onto the reigns tightly, the cheeky guides may ask the horse to trot a little faster to get a reaction out of you! ?
