    Nice place to visit with young kids. Our toddler throughly enjoyed the bird park. Specially the high flyer and king of the skies shows. The park is well laid out and birds look well taken care of. Worth a visit for sure.

    We spent half a day and it was worth the experience. The trail is designed thoughtfully and conveniently that you would want to explore it more. Properly signed and ample resting spots, photography spots and widened trails makes the trail one of the best in Singapore.

    Due to its remoteness, this is one of the most quiet spots for walking in Singapore. The area is fantastic for seasonal birding and if you want to spot the Malayan monitor lizards.

    It was an interesting experience to watch the animals in their natural habitats at night ...the tram was comfortable ...the synchronisation of the stops and recorded narrative (which is played along the journey) for each animal species was seamless . Of all the animals ,I was in awe of the rare white lion ( we could spot only one of them and just as we were passing by, he delighted us with a majestic yawn) .Also the long tusked elephant .

    The trams only show few of the animals ,for a more adventurous experience one can go on the walking trails- fishing cart trail, wallaby trail etc .
    Ulu Ulu is the restaurant serving local and various other cuisines . It's a paradise for non vegetarians especially sea food lovers .For Vegetarians there is only one option- rice thali . They have many souvenir shops .
    As the visit involves a lot of walking ,those with mobility issues may face difficulty .

    A percentage of the ticket revenue goes into safeguarding these animals including many endangered species which is commendable .

    It's better to buy tickets online before the visit .At the venue we got a bit delayed as we had to purchase them online .

    Worth visiting for kids and adults .

    We visited Sentosa, so had our taxi driver drop us off at Mount Faber.

    From here we caught the cable car over to Sentosa Island.

    The views from Mount Fable are nice city views.

    Labrador Park (拉柏多公园, Taman Labrador), is located in the southern part of mainland SG. The area is gazetted as a nature reserve and has a great picturesque view of the sea. The Labrador Nature reserve is also a site with historical relics from World War II left behind by the former British colonial legacy on the island.
    Labrador Nature Reserve is part of the Southern Ridges adventure-exploring which also comprises nearby Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park.
    It is conveniently located to the Labrador mrt, but one has to walk quite a distance in. From the station it is a walk along the Labrador Villa Rd which leads to Labrador Nature Reserve. We drove so parked at any of the free carparks available.
    An amazing park that is surprisingly not very packed when we visited past few times. One can go fishing, sight-see (old WW2 remnants), exercise and even eye bird-watch here.. For Sightseeing check out the remnants of some British military battlement; there’s the machine gun post and artillery pieces (remains). Or can just enjoy the breeze and tranquillity while using any of the fitness equipment found in the park. Just jogging beside the shoreline and taking in the scenic view of the sea and nearby islands can be so enjoyable! A lot of people fishing at the park too. The ‘natural wonders’ (rocky sea-cliff ) sure make Instagram able-scene!
    Labrador Nature Reserve is really an oasis of tranquillity away from bustling city, not very crowded and allow us to get connected to nature.

    I was last here at the end of Feb with the kids. Plenty of space for children to go scooting or bike riding on relatively quiet paths. The playground is normally quite good here too, but on the occasion of our visit it was undergoing repair. There's also some beach access, but of course the water is filthy and there's a lot of rubbish floating onto the shore.

    We booked the ferry tickets online from Singapore Island Cruise. It costs $15 return and the ferry schedule is more often during the weekends. It is advisable to visit during the weekends due to the more frequent ferry services with the last ferry departing at 17 50. There were not many people during the Saturday we visited. St John's Island has one pretty beach also called St John's Lagoon. It is near to the toilet with only one cubicle and no toilet paper. There is another toilet near to the former primary school with its roof removed due to the asbestos problem. There are many scenic and shady trails to walk and there are about ten heritage trees dotted throughout the island.
    With more time, one can easily walk across the causeway to Lazarus Island, Seringat Island, Kias Island and Seringat Kecil Island. Lazarus Island and Seringat Island were merged by land reclamation. Lazarus Island is popular for the beautiful white sandy beach with a view of Kusu Island not too far away.
    Seringat Island has a jetty with a weekend and public holiday ferry service from Sentosa Cove jetty. It costs $20 return for the 15 minutes journey. There is a wide shelter at Seringat jetty with good toilet facilities with toilet paper. Another man-made causeway links Seringat Island and the Kias Island. The downtown Singapore skyline can be seen from Kias Island. Kias island was previously a shoal which was reclaimed and expanded into an island. Hence there are very few trees here with lots of wild flowers growing in the open fields. It has an electric generator to support the cluster of islands. There are wide tarred roads around these islands making it very convenient for easy cycling. There is no bicycle kiosk here but the ferry from Sentosa allows one to board with bicycle at no extra charge. Another island, Seringat Kecil Island can be seen from the Seringat Jetty. It is connected by a bridge but it is fully forested and is not accessible with a proper path. Most people have picnic around the Lazarus Beach area.

    Coney Island is almost an oasis in the middle of Singapore's beautiful buildings and high tech urbanism.

    The main gravel path crosses the island from one end to the other, with smaller ones branching from it. Sandy beaches dots the island outter side and there are nice steps on the northwestern end where you can seat and appreciate the view (it's also basically the only sign of "urbanization" in the whole island).

    Make sure to bring food and drinks if you plan to stay for a while, as there's nowhere to buy them once you go past the gates.

    Lower Seletar Park and Reservoir are located in Sembawang / Mandai area. The park itself is not big but quite pleasant to visit and strolls with friends & family until you reach the reservoir which offers nice views.

    This is a small park. We took Punggol LRT and alighted at Riviera station, walked about 20 minutes to reach the red steel bridge.

    Yesterday I took a Nature walk at Hindhede Quarry Nature Park. Nice afternoon out but very hot. From the car part there are a few steep steps uphill, but once at quarry lake level it’s all on the flat - brilliant views of the lake at the quarry.

    A terrapin or turtle in the lake - no birds about. There was an interesting spider - similar to a golden orb, but looking slightly different.

    Numerous monkeys in the trees and a cloudy monitor lizard on the wooded area. A flying insects nest noted on a tree. An Asian trampsnail on the trunk of a tree. Plenty of resting places along the way. Nice day out - I would probably go a little slower and more mindful of the environment had it been a little cooler. Don’t forget your water.

    Nice exhibition centre on the way down to the car park from the northerly approach. Refreshments available from vending machines. Careful of the monkeys.

    The dairy farm nature park is easy to go after opening of the MRT downtown line station Hillview. The entrance of the lark is just next to the MRT station exit. The path is wide and not steep, easy to reach to the end. The Singapore Quarry is at one end of the path which has beautiful view.

    A Marshland located at Northern part of S’pore with great variety of migratory birds through different Seasons of the year. Like the place as it was quiet and not many people on a Public Holiday. The only one shortcomings is that the walk was too short from the starting point to the end of the track culminating with a birds eye view from a Tower.

    This tour to Pulau Semakau is not a visit to a pristine island of serenity or for a relaxed sunbath on a sparkling beach of tranquility. This tour is to visit the graveyard where the ashes of tonnes and tonnes of the waste, the discarded by-product of what we consumed and used, are being land filled here as a solution to their disposal.

    The educational visit really widened my knowledge of waste management. It is easy to dump and discard the plastic bottles, the left-over food, the paper boxes, the rubbish after each meal into the garbage bins but the process of segregating the waste and converting them into ashes under high pressure and temperature in the incinerator and to land fill them at this island is really tedious and costly.

    Many developing countries could not afford to pay for this waste management process and you find heaps of rubbish discarded or dumped into rivers, roadside, backyards of residence, drainage, almost every corner of the countries.. The polluted environment led to further degeneration of the citizens' health and widespread of contagious and infectious diseases.

    Recently, the news have reported that few developed countries irresponsibly and unscrupulously dumped containers with tonnes of waste to poor developing countries hoping to save on the cost of disposal.

    This is the harsh reality we are facing and Singapore take very careful steps to ensure that the contaminants from the ash do not seep out from the land fills into the sea polluting and disrupting the existing ecosystems. Just imagine tonnes of non-biodegradable plastic waste are transformed into ashes by the incinerator plants and these ashes with much toxic contaminants leaked out from the land fills into the sea and consumed by the sea bass that were reared at the floating sea farms and the fish ended up on our plates. The serious health consequences would be catastrophic.

    Residential option on this land fill island appears impossible. Farming edible plants or fruit trees on such a land fill with contaminated ashes would also be detrimental to health. A more acceptable plant would be Jatropha where the fruits could be extracted for diesel.

    Mankind is in such a dilemma. The high cost of waste management will eat into taxpayers' money but can we live in a polluted environment of discarded rubbish.

    How many islands must we sacrifice for land fills to solve our waste management problems?

    Singapore is just such a tiny red dot. We have sacrificed Pulau Saekeng to create this land fills of Pulau Semakau. When the land fills has reached saturated point in 2035, can Singapore afford to sacrifice another offshore island to solve our waste management problem?

    It is challenging but we have to think of ways to reduce, reuse and recycle whatever we discard. REUSE, RECYCLE AND REDUCE WASTE - the 3 Rs and the 4th R is to REMEMBER this!

    I found this trip to this island memorable and thought provoking.
