Zoo Itinerary for Family


I planned this zoo itinerary for family not only on paper, but also walked on the actual ground to be sure that the itinerary is practical and useful. You can rely on it as your navigation guide to go around the zoo.

By going through the itinerary, you would have a good preview of Singapore Zoo and a clear picture of what to expect when you visit the Zoo.
