This self-guided morning zoo itinerary is especially useful if you don't have time to plan one for yourself. It will save you time and many unnecessary guessing when you navigate around the zoo. Importantly, you will not miss any interesting and must-see exhibits and shows as they are covered in this itinerary.
Is it better to visit Singapore Zoo in the morning? The answer is yes if you are given a choice of a morning or afternoon visit. The reasons are:
What happened if your schedule left with only an afternoon session? No worry, I had also planned an afternoon zoo itinerary which is equally fun.
How to use the above zoo's navigation map? Follow the colour arrows in the following order: Pink -> Brown -> Green -> Yellow -> Brown -> Blue.
Enter from here to Treetops Trail.
When you come early, the monkeys are there to welcome you and your family.
Your kids could easily spot at least one of the India Gharials just under the platform.
A rare chance to see two gharials so close by. All the while I thought there are only two gharials, in fact there are three altogether.

One thing Gibbons can do better than us is that they can swing from here to there in a split seconds like nobody business. They are so proud to show off their skill as shown in the below video.
