We didn't see anything other than an otter and rats along the mangrove swamp. Carry insect repellant. A very disappointing experience. Wouldn't recommend a visit!

OK so we love birds, you have to in order to get the most out of this place. Don’t go if you’re not prepared to sit and wait because it’s nature, not a tv show We spent a couple of hours here and watched kingfishers...More

This was one attraction that we visited twice during out stay in KK. You have to be patient to enjoy it though; the birds are free to come and go as they please, so you have to wait for them to show up. Binoculars are...More

I really wanted to enjoy the wetland centre, and I truly admire their ethos, trying to improve education on environmental matters and preserve the mangrove swamp. That being said, the place had a very rundown feel to it, and the piles of rubbish (plastic bottles,...More

We thought it would be nice, but’s it’s the complete opposite, board walk is very very old and rotten. Part of the path is just mud and very slippery. Next to no wildlife

I think the management should consider to do something about the cleanliness of the wetlands. There are a lot of bottles and slippers lying around. Even the information board is not properly maintained as the pictures and informations seems faded for quite sometimes and nobody...More

This is probably not the biggest wetland centre, bit its nice! If you go slow you see the most. Almost no musquitos. Taxi from downtown to here will cost 15rm.

We went on a walk through the mangroves on a Friday. It was very peaceful because we were the only people on the walkway. We saw several bird species including egrets, herons, and swallows plus one kingfisher and one kite. We also saw mudskippers, crabs,...More
