Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve Reviews
This place is really really not accessible. It's hidden behind miles and miles of army camps, graveyards and farmland. When you reach here, you'll find there's often noone around, which is rare for... more »
A nice park but is still under renovation and further construction but it has nice mangrove trees and plants and sea birds and nice breeze and good walkways to walk more »
Have been guiding here since 1993. Every visit is a different experience. For visitors who can only spare about 2-3 hrs. I would recommend the Mangrove Boardwalk, Main Bridge n Main Hide. Good period to visit Aug to April it being the migration period. Time to visit from 0700-1000 or 1700-1900 where it's cooler.
Great place to go to for a 2-3 hour walk, also great place for all kinds of photographers. If you want to have an actual chance of spotting an aligator you should come during regular office hours mid-week when the crowd is smallest and wildlife gets a bit more brave. Otherwise you can still spot some amazing giant lizards, squirrels, and lots of spiders (don't worry- these are mostly st. Andrew's spiders- very good at catching flies but not venomous)
