#2 of 20 in Wildlife in Singapore
Get in touch with natural beauty at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.

Today, the area is a popular site for eco-friendly tourism, as it features raised wooden walkways and viewing platforms surrounding the water. Bring your binoculars, as the area is an acclaimed bird-watcher's haven. The reserve offers plenty of educational resources, allowing you to learn more about the region and the animals within the natural habitat.

    We went on a weekday, and encountered only a small handful of visitors. A leisurely walk took us almost 3-4 hours to cover the reserve, we could have taken longer if it wasn't threatening to rain. Tak...  more »

    I have childhood memories of the reserve, doing science projects with mum, or just going on a quick birdwatching trip with the family. Not much had changed over the years, with the exception of the fr...  more »

    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.

    Good place to be good to nature. The whole place is possible to be covered within a morning. Bring binoculars.

    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!!
