Pandas to get five-star treatment in Singapore
They will enjoy $8.5m enclosure and four types of specially grown bamboo
ST 18 May 2012
The endangered pandas are the national treasures of China, and Singapore has every intention of treating them as such when two of them come here.
In the run-up to Kai Kai and Jia Jia's arrival - which, it is hoped, will take place by year-end - a lot of work has been put in to make their 10-year stay here a five-star experience.
Everything - from the types of bamboo that they need to be fed to the exact spots for installing lights - is being fine-tuned months before their much-anticipated arrival.
The $8.5 million panda enclosure in the upcoming River Safari obtained its Temporary Occupation Permit.
It is indeed better to be an animal in Singapore.
