Today, the area is a popular site for eco-friendly tourism, as it features raised wooden walkways and viewing platforms surrounding the water.

The reserve offers plenty of educational resources, allowing you to learn more about the region and the animals within the natural habitat.

  • So beautiful! Finally some real nature in Singapore. Lots of mossies though but also a huge amount of fish and even crocodiles! Not to mention the birdlife here. You can even see Malaysia on the other side of the water. I recommend spending at least 2h here and not too late in the day. Best time, I guess, is very early or before sunset when the wildlife is active the most.
  • This is a fairly big wetland and it will take some time to cover the whole area. Choose what you like to see and explore the area at your own pace. The Mangrove Boardwalk is an interesting track to try and it is a nice way to learn more about the mangrove ecosystem. The Buloh Tidal Ponds is a long track but it is reasonably shady and offers many opportunities to see some interesting creatures, like crocodile during low tide, mudskipper, spiders and monitor lizard.
  • Salties, Malay monitors (largest lizards after the Komodo dragons), variety of water and other birds, monkeys you can find them all here. Be careful though, don't venture into the woods or marshes and stay along the lanes. Better to go with friends than alone. Though the salties haven't done anything yet they are present and we need to understand they are very dangerous. powerful predators so stay away from the water in all forms!!
  • Great scenic views and the chance to spot abundant wildlife makes this an excellent choice to visit. Trails aren't exceedingly difficult, most are well-paced with enough leg room for a small group of people to walk together. I have spotted storks, huge pelicans, all types of herons, monitor lizards in the pond, monitor lizards on the trails, a shocking amount of spiders, huge mudskippers that are surprisingly adorable to watch, and numerous other encounters etc. Recommended for a respite away from the urban landscape, the only drawback being the hard to reach location. Going by public transport requires one to change several buses and walk for a short while, not that hard by any means but more arduous than normal. I enjoy photography on the weekends there and it remains one of my favourite outdoor spots in Singapore. *photos have been edited
  • Winter delight. What a pleasure to see the migratory birds, then there are the marshes with their beautiful roots, , all year round, an occasional encounter with monitor lizard, what a delight - and dont forget to spot the mud skippers. you can see Malaysia skyline from here.
