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

Recently, a number of saltwater crocodiles were spotted by visitors. Sometimes, the crocodiles would crawl to the pathway. It can be exciting or dangerously depending on who you are with at the reserve. If you are with young childrem, I strongly discourage you from going. But if you are with your adventurous friends, then by means please visit. You just... More

Sungei Buloh is definitely a must see place for nature lovers. Lonely walk through a forest like environment via safe trails. The best cameras are required to capture great scenery & bring your binoculars. Nice place for bird watching with appropriately placed multiple Observation Hides & Decks. The Aerie gives a great view (cannot say the same about the Tower... More

Singapore is not only the busy financial district. It's also (hopefully for still a long time) a rich wildlife that you can discover and almost touch in the reserve. Different trails give you options (mainly distance options) you can choice depending on how long and how far you can walk. But in any case you'll be able to see (and... More
