Nature treasure trove
May 2021 • Couples
Inaccessible but worth the trip. A place where if you heighten your senses, you can see a lot of creatures that lives amongst us in their natural habitat in one of the last mangrove swamps in Singapore. A good educational tour to bring the kids and children along, where they can see a lot of insects, reptiles that we don't usually see in the increasingly urban jungle we live in. Lucky to see quite a fair bit this trip...

Good getaway from the city!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Second time we visited Sungei Buloh and the coastal path was new to us so that was really interesting with the different pods as observatories. It's not easy to get to without public transport but we got there very early in the morning so there weren't too many people about. Once you get there and hear all the different sounds from the insects, birds, etc, it feels you're immersed in nature. We did a walk round and spotted an alligator in the water - luckily none too close up! There were some works around the reserve so some areas were cordoned off. Otherwise it was a good use of a few hours. Recommended if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Thank you Mr.Lim - Jane’s SG Tours
Apr 2021 • Family
We’ve been a few times on school trips but quite different having a private tour with Mr.Lim who is very knowledgeable. Our 11 and 13yr old children got a lot out of the tour. (Off electronics for a whole morning too) Managed to see a crocodile, heron, stalks, monitor lizard, mud crabs, mud lobster beds, fish, bats, spiders and webs... Learnt plant names and about them. Many of which we had taken for granted having seen them many times already. Now we know their names and all about them. Highly recommended. Great morning Mr. Lim. Thank you.

Well worth a visit to immerse yourself in nature and wildlife. Best avoided on a Sunday though as it gets incredibly busy.

A bit of nature study.
Jan 2021 • Couples
Despite being a stone city, we do care for nature! Spent this morning at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve made me realized how much our National Parks Board has done through research and education to conserve this wetland. It gave us the outdoor classroom to experience what nature has to offer
Sunday morning walk at the 202 ha of this rare oasis of natural wonders and home to unique plants and animals. Following through the trails of mangroves, mudflats, ponds and forest with refreshing smell, sights and sounds of nature.
Started from the visitor centre at Kranji way, we head to the
Forest Trail, a 300metre stroll to the mid of Canopy Walk and to the Eagle Point lookout pod. There are five look out pods that could give you different views.
After completing the Coastal Trail, we continued to the Magrove Boardwalk and the Migrating Bird Trail. It was certainly a refreshing and educational morning for me. Would love to do it again.

Good day out
Jan 2021
This is well worth a visit, you can get the MRT to Kranji and from there the Kranji Countryside bus will take you round all the sights in the area. Check bus timetable before leaving as it is not very frequent. At Sungei Buloh there is a wide variety of wildlife to see birds, fish and for the me the highlight salt water crocodiles. One has been there for 12 years he has only 1/2 a tail due to a fight with another croc. It is a lovely part of Singapore with mangroves. Well worth a visit go when it is a low tide there is more chance to see the crocodiles

Great place for nature lovers
Dec 2020
A marshland which has been conserved with a lot of thought, making it possible to see a wetland without impacting it ecologically. Multiple trails means you have multiple options. Heaven for birdwatchers. Remember to carry water. Best to go in the morning when park opens.

Creative & Interesting Nature Park
Dec 2020
Reach here via Public Bus 925 (10 mins approx ride) from Kranji MRT.
Carparks available too.
Entrance gate is very near to Bus drop off point... very convenient.
Its a bit off from the main city, but believe that what makes it more exclusive, calm & quiet.
Its a interesting park with many creative elements integrated...
a good trail for family & nature lovers...
3 hours approx to explore this park at ease is appropriate.
Some eatables, water & binoculars, camera good to carry.
And just put yourself in to your most comfortable walking shoes...and Explore & Connect with nature...

An amazing wetland experience
Nov 2020 • Friends
Sungei Buloh wetland reserve is well developed and wheelchair friendly for everyone to enjoy the natural habitat of birds and animals living in a forested environment with mangrove swamps, water catchments, etc. We were very lucky to have spotted some migrating birds, an alligator, a crocodile, a sea snake, a monitor lizard and loads of mudskippers during our hike today. Carefully constructed walk ways are well built and maintained leading visitors to various exciting lookout points via the coastal route, forested route, mangrove route, etc. It’s a haven for bird watchers during this bird migration season.
Transport wise is also very easy to reach there via public transport, ie either bus or taxi, or by car as there is free parking near the visitors centre too. It’s a place worth exploring with families or friends to enjoy a bit of nature away from the buzzing city life.
