The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is in the west area of the island. When visiting this place, be prepared to wear long sleeve tops and bottoms. The amount of mosquitoes inside the reserve is crazy, at any one point in time, there can be 5 mosquitoes feeding on you. Don't forget the insect repellant and water bottles!

Visited the Sunguei Buloh wetlands with my family to try to experience some of the nature and wildlife in Singapore. Took advantage of an individual guide for a couple of hours to walk and talk us round at the same time .... very rewarding experience and nice to be out of the hustle and bustle of city life. You can see salt water crocodiles (from the safety of the walkway), mirriads of monitor lizzards, amphibians & various insects. Just to walk among the mangrove trees and see nature resposponding to the change in tides was fantastic. The guide (Robert) made it a rewarding experience as he was able to spot and identify dozens of creatures that we would have just passed by un-noticed. A fun morning with family or a nice get away on your own.

For those who loathe the mozzies, get ready your insect repellents! You will definitely need those repellents in the midst of your tour around the wetland reserve.

Many bird lovers can be spotted lugging around their cameras and DSLRs, in the hope of spotting migratory birds and any rare species of insects even!

This place is often a favourite for schools as well. Students come in busloads, often armed with activity books in their hands. Their mission? To spot amphibians like the huge monitor lizard (Yes! It is huge indeed. I managed to spot one which was about 2 metres in length when I was there) and also uncommon creatures like the horseshoe crab.

More commonly spotted: Mudskippers and Kingfishers.

Get ready to bring your shades, cap/hat, bottle of water and insect repellent should you want to spend a few hours there.
The sun can be pretty merciless at times.

One of our favorite outings in Singapore. Miles of trails and boardwalks through mangrove swamps and coastal brush. See monitor lizards, mudskippers, crabs, crocodiles and many birds. Much closer to Johor Baru than to Singapore city - you can hear the call to prayer from across the straits.

Visit this nature reserve and see Singapore's big three: Crocodile, otter and monitor lizard. It's a beautiful spot with excellent mangrove forest and many hides and even watchtowers. Bird watchers will also appreciate this place. But it's not for the hoi polloi who only loves food and shopping. Be ready to be in the real nature, it's humid, sometimes smelly and with mosquitoes. The rewards are well worth the trip. Leave your city slicker boyfriend or Starbuck girlfriend at home and come to see this place. Bring your binoculars!
