Singaporetourismmap: Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

If you lot are looking for some other usage of Singapore's wilder side to explore hence the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve mightiness endure the house for you.  Situated inwards the far northward due west of Singapore it is a fleck of a trek (if you lot don't possess got a car) but good worth the effort!  To acquire in that location yesteryear world carry nosotros took the MRT to Kranji together with hence a motorbus exterior the station (number 925) which dropped us off correct exterior the reserve.  The motorbus runs inwards a loop hence you lot tin hence acquire the same motorbus dorsum to the MRT station.  Apparently the motorbus solely runs yesteryear the reserve on Sundays together with world holidays, the residuum of the fourth dimension the closest it gets is Kranji Reservoir motorcar green together with hence it's a 15 infinitesimal walk to the reserve from there.  Luckily nosotros chose to acquire on a sun hence were pretty much able to locomote door to door!

On arrival in that location is a lilliputian visitors expanse alongside some data virtually the reserve together with the type of wild fauna you lot mightiness endure lucky plenty to spot, including crocodiles!  I'd heard stories virtually crocodiles inwards Singapore but I didn't truly know where they were.  Sadly (or maybe fortunately depending on your stance point) nosotros didn't spot whatever crocodiles on our visit.  Maybe an excuse to render in 1 trial again for hereafter crocodile spotting!

Once you lot cross over the brain duet into the reserve you lot possess got a seat out of routes you lot tin pick out to follow.  These vary inwards distance/time hence you lot tin pick out whatever suits you lot best.  The paths through the reserve are good set out together with slowly to follow together with compared to places similar MacRitchie Reservoir the reserve is a lot quieter (even on a Sunday) hence is keen for wild fauna spotting.  It truly seemed truly remote inwards places together with I wondered how they cheque in that location is no 1 nonetheless inwards the reserve when it closes at night.  I definitely would non desire to acquire stuck inwards in that location after hours!  There are aeroplane observation hides dotted around the reserve for tranquility observation every bit good every bit screens to sentry the birds etc. without existence seen yourself.  The hides possess got data virtually the types of wild fauna you lot are probable to come across every bit well.  In add-on in that location is also a tower shroud which you lot tin climb to acquire some keen views of the reserve together with beyond every bit good every bit expose the birds from a unlike angle.

Although nosotros didn't come across whatever crocodiles nosotros saw plenty of monitor lizards throughout the whole reserve.  We also saw plenty of birds although all from a reasonable distance hence I'm afraid I don't know precisely what they were.  At 1 signal nosotros saw a schoolhouse of silvery fish which appeared to endure jumping out of the water.  I later on learnt they were called Tropical Silverside, cheers to 1 of the data boards I mentioned before.  The data provided said that they are frequently seen, every bit nosotros saw them, inwards large groups close the H2O surface together with when disturbed volition synchronously jump out of the water.  I don't mean value nosotros disturbed them every bit nosotros were every bit good far away hence I'd honey to know what did.  In add-on the walk around the reserve also allowed us to come across Malaysia at numerous points only across the water.

After next 1 of the walks around together with finishing in 1 trial again dorsum at the visitor centre nosotros decided to hence acquire on the mangrove boardwalk.  This is solely a 30 infinitesimal walk hence after a refreshing (and cooling drink) this seemed similar a really sensible choice.  The mangrove walk is designed to permit you lot walk correct through the mangroves without getting your feet wet.  Whilst walking hither nosotros saw multiple mudskipper's together with tree-climbing crabs.  If you lot await at my in conclusion photograph inwards this post you lot tin come across both of these.  It isn't the greatest photograph but hopefully you lot tin brand them out!

The Sungei Buloh wetland reserve is definitely somewhere to see if you lot desire the jeopardy to acquire unopen to some of the nature inwards Singapore.  The walks are good set out together with alongside the hides together with screens dotted around it is really good designed for the purpose of observing all that is there.  In add-on together with maybe because it is quite a journeying to acquire to, it is wonderfully peaceful fifty-fifty at the weekend, specially inwards comparing to other parts of Singapore designed for nature spotting together with walking.  Definitely good worth making the journey!

I liked this advice on making the most of your see taken from the leaflet nosotros picked upward at the visitors centre.

Take cipher but photographs,
Leave cipher but footprints.

Wise words indeed.
