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

On a quiet weekend, I went to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, good to spot 3 monitor lizards a short while after I entered the park, a squirrel and some storks. There are more to spot on a lucky day, like the otters and egrets and crocodiles. No food on sale here, so make sure you bring your water. Bring... More

When visiting Singapore take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the City to enjoy a relaxing stroll through a world class nature reserve. On arrival at the reserve you will be greeted by the Rangers at an excellent wildlife interpretation centre. Here you can thoroughly orientate yourself to find out more about the wetlands and its wildlife... More

The Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve is absolutely wonderful with an amazing array of birds, monitor lizards, the occasional crocodile, and a snake if you're lucky. It's well maintained, inexpensive to enter, and accessible by public transport (as everything is in Singapore). When you're in the reserve you'd never believe that you're in the uber-urban city-state of Singapore. Thank you Singapore... More
