The following zoo itinerary was drafted out after several visits to the Zoo. I have improved it over time and included lots of pictures and video clips which I have taken at the Zoo. By going through the itinerary, you would have a good preview of the Zoo and a clear picture of what to expect when you visiting the Zoo.
Head left to Treetops Trail to spot Siamang above of you and False Ghavial beneath you.
Follow Tiger Trek to see White Tiger. Don't miss Gibbon, which is not far away from the White Tiger habitat.
Catch the White Tiger swimming and moving around early in the morning. If you come and see them in the afternoon under the hot sun, they are likely sitting still under the shade. Gibbon is another animal which is very active in the morning. You will hear them screaming and jumping about and perform all kinds of tricks under the rope.
Polar Bear feeding time at 10.05am. Be there 10 minutes before the feeding time, otherwise you may not be able to get a seat.

Wild Africa to see Cheetah and Lion. Feel free to amend the zoo itinerary to include your favourite animals instead.

Free ranging Orang Utan boardwalk. View a video clip of Orang Utan in action.
This is a big exhibit which accommodate more than 70 Hamadryas Baboons. You may view these animal in various spots around the exhibit, but the best viewing point is at the viewing gallery behind a glass panel where the Baboons are right in front of you.

Picnic at Pavilion By the Laken or Garden Pavilion. It's advisable to bring your own food.
Rainforest Fights Back show at 1.30pm at Shaw Foundation Amphitheatre. Be there 10-15 minutes before the show, otherwise you may not be able to get a seat.

Splash Safari Show at 2.30pm at Splash Amphitheatre. Be there 10-15 minutes before the show on weekdays and at least 20 minutes before the show on weekends and public holidays. Otherwise you won't be able to get a seat as this theatre is much smaller than the Shaw Foundation Amphitheatre.

Rainforest Kidzworld. Remember to bring swimwear for your kids. Walk or take a tram from station 3 to station 2. Skip Fragile Forest and extend to 5.30pm if your kids need more time for Kidzworld.
You may want to change your zoo itinerary to replace the Kidzworld with Elephant at Work and Play Show at 3.30pm at Elephants of Asia if the playground isn't right for you.

Fragile Forest. Get close encounter with tree kangaroo, flying foxes, lemurs, mousedeer and many other friendly forest inhabitants.
