It took me five years of living in Singapore make it out there, and glad I finally did. The loop (trail 1) can be completed in a couple hours, and there is plenty to see. The bird life is impressive. We saw a few crocodile and close to a dozen large monitor lizards during the hike. Would have been even... More

Sungei Buloh Wetland is 15 minutes from Kranji MRT Station and this is ideal place to go for nature walk . you can spot lizard easily . It will take around 2 hours to walk around the wetland reserve.

The taxi driver had heard of this place and knew how to get there, but had never been in spite of living in Singapore all his life. The facilities are first class. We are bit surprised to find that we were the only visitors. It was a bit warm and humid, but there is plenty of shade and a lot... More

This place is really hot and slimy - if you like to venture into weland reserve - you will like this place. Being a city person - i dislike anything slimy like snakes or anything crawling in the wetlands looking like snakes or crocodiles. I prefer butterflies and paved parks anytime. This palce is hard to get there - if... More

Learn to appreciate how mud and gangly mangroves are the unsung heroes of the tropical coastline. My boy recently spotted a 4m long croc in the river that runs through the place! Planning to go in Aug for a bit of bird-watching as that is when the migratory birds flock the Wetlands.

An interesting visit but out on the walking paths it felt quite isolated as I walked with my two daughters. The sudden appearance of a large monitor lizard on the path really added an extra excitement. It quickly disappeared into the water. It was quite tiring in the heat even on the short walk and when we were there we... More

The wetland reserve is out in Singapore's "rural" area (well as rural as it gets in Singapore), however it is an interesting place to visit if you're interested in wildlife, particularly birds. The place is a magnet for birders, as the wetlands is a popular stopover for migratory birds heading south to escape the cold in the north from Aug/September,... More

If you ever wonder where the animals are, then you should visit this place. Went there with a professor and a research student last year. We were able to spot more than 10 wildlife inhabitants in less than an hour,amazing! Seriously, for nature lovers out there, this is a place you wouldn't want to miss.

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve (SBWR) is the largest area of protected mangrove forests in Singapore, and one of the few open to the public, so that makes it one of the best places to go to learn and understand about mangrove ecosystems. Before you visit SBWR, I recommend bringing along mosquito repellent, a pair of binoculars (if any), as well... More
