An out of the way spot in the north-west good for birding. We caught the MRT to Kranji and then the Kranji Village express bus ($3 per day ticket). This bus stops at both the Sungei Buloh visitor centre and the wetland centre and runs about every 90 minutes. You can walk from the visitor centre up the coastal trail... More

We visited in the early morning (9am) and were treated with crocs, wild otters catching fish, monitor lizards, eagles, spiders and lots of wetland birds. It's a little far from everything else in SGP but that's why it's still real wetland with natural wildlife. Would go back again and make sure it's early.

Visiting not in perfect season it was still worth the trip. Many dragons, fishes, turtles and birds to watch - very close to civilization a unique setting. Only downside need to plan trip back as no Taxi's around and one needs local Kranji bus which operates infrequent. Also - it has mosquitos!

Last week I visited Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve three times. The wetland which is Singapore’s first ASEAN Heritage Park was formerly used for spawning prawns and as a fish nursery but because of it’s rich biodiversity, it became a protected Nature Reserve in January 2002. It’s now very popular with bird watchers and nature lovers, who go there to take... More

It's a great education trip with young children. They love it. We always able to see wild animal, but it's not nowadays. Cause nowadays too many tourists bring their students, and don't understand why they must talked so loud and make noise, alert all the animal. That's the reasons no much wild animals to be seen.

Our family visited the reserve along with a Singaporean friend who is a keen birdwatcher. It was great to see a non-commercial side of Singapore and to ben somewhere the crowds were not! Our children were able to see a number of creatures at home in the wild. These included a number of birds (storks, herons, egrets, kingfishers etc) as... More

I have been there numerous times with my family. Seen lots of monitor lizards, mud skippers, hermit crabs, horse shoe crabs, shells, birds, fishes and 1 crocodile. One of the coolest places in Singapore. Come early in the morning before high tide if you want to spot the animals on the mud land. The place is clean and well maintained.... More

This place is really quite good, but with young children it can be a bit hot and uncomfortable, especially if you visit in the heat of the day. A few interesting walking trails and you may even see crocodiles if you're lucky.
