Interesting place but like all wild animal areas it just depends in the day and time what you get to see. The Mud Skippers are probably the most unusual thing. Take time to read the notices and look closely as many animals are well comoflaged. Take plenty of Water. The old visitor centre which is central has been done away... More

Nice nature walk. Easily able to spot moiniter lizards. I like the sheds along the walking path where you can rest and observe the nature and birds in the reserve. Best to go on a weekdays.. You can have the park all to yourself on a weekday and admisdion is free. On weekend, there is $1 admisdion fee and more... More

Went by taxi which was best and quicker option. MRT from orchard would take over 40 mins and woukd also require bus from kranji. Lots of water monitors near entrance. Saw three crocodiles and some bugs and spiders. Lots of birds. Low tide and little rain meant some areas did not have much water. Shame top footpaths to prawn farm... More

I found it difficult to rate this one for many reasons. The Sungei Buloh Wetland lies in the northwest of Singapore and I it is really a privilege to have such a reserve anywhere in the world. Right as we entered the first bridge located over the estuary, we could see a large crocodile sunbathing by the river bank. I... More

We were here recently for our third visit, and the place just continues to improve, with more board walks and viewing points. We saw many interesting mangroves, butterflies, dragonflies, water birds, turtles, sea snakes, cobras, water monitors, crabs, golden orb spiders, various lizards and frogs. However, on this third visit we saw some rubbish and I suspect this was because... More

A lovely wetland reserve sadly blighted but a plethora of rubbish. the man-made parts of this reserve are pristine and staff can be seen diligently wiping, sweeping and polishing but the natural parts are a sorry state. I realise the wetlands are mainly tidal with rubbish being brought in with each tide but much of it is deposited on dry... More

As Singapore is becoming more and more advance as a city, spots like this becomes natural treasure and haven away from the traffic, tonnes of people. Its definitely a sanctuary that offers nothing but lush greenery and your occasional visits from families of Malayian Monitor Lizards and the brown squirrels. This place is also a no brainer for all bird... More

We arrived at 7am., 8am would have been better as the animals suddenly appeared once the sun warmed up. Route 1was the only one open but this was fine because we had a five year old with us. We walked for 2.5 hours and climbed to the top of the viewing tower. Saw lots of birds, mudskippers turtles and 12... More

Visited on Sunday, but only Route 1 of the Tidal Ponds was open, and both Routes 2 & 3 were closed. It was a nice pleasant walk, but the path was a little rough (not really suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs). However the Costal Trail was much smoother. To get there we took the MRT to Woodlands, and then took... More
