Not really a fabulous nature place... lots of trash unfortunately... but we did see water monitors and estuarine crocs... The walk around is quite short (1 - 2 miles) but plenty of opportunities for looking to find wildlife... overall, it was good to get out of the city, but really wasn't an earth shatteringly great experience...

I am an ecotourist type (hiker, bird watcher, etc.) and it was nice to have a place to get away to during a week long visit to the Singapore. Unlike the bird park, all of the birds and other wildlife here roamed freely. I spent a five hours walking all of the trails, met friendly locals, and saw Malaysia across... More

We spent a very hot couple of hours at the wetland reserve and only covered a fraction of it. We went at high tide so there was a lot of water around and no chance of seeing the crocodiles, but we were still treated to an array of wildlife. We were lucky to have a beady eyed child with us... More

This is a great place for a walk and birding. This is located in the north-west corner of Singapore just across the border with Malaysia I took a cab from the city center - about 30SGD - coming back I took the bus to MRT station - Kranji station I saw lots of herons, egrets, some kingfishers, woodpeckers,etc and large...

The wildlife viewing here is amazing. Fantastic range of birds, plus all the flora of the mangroves. If you like wildlife, you really should spend some time here. As other reviews have noted, there is a depressing amount of rubbish in the mangrove swamps. Overall, we did not feel this detracted from our enjoyment of the park We were not... More

I happened to stay over a weekend at Singapore, my colleague being a avid bird watcher and photographer, I agree to join him on a Saturday morning exercise. I advised that we be at Sungei Buloh by 07:30 AM, early enough to catch more of the bird activities. So a taxi(costing us about S$ 35) took us there from our... More

Really excellent nature reserve, a lovely quiet break from the rest of noisy Singapore! Get the MRT to Kranji and a taxi from there, it's the easiest way to get there and back. There are several boardwalks you can take, depending on how far you want to walk. It's very hot and humid in the wetlands so bring plenty of... More

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
