Today, we visited the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve , a place I wanted to see for a while already. I don’t know why we did not made it there earlier … maybe because I considered it too far?! (I mean not really far, but as far as it gets within this tiny place called Singapore ;).)

We coordinated our timing to reach at low tide which allowed us to walk the numerous trails and boardwalks, to discover the mangrove forests and get close to the life in the muddy waters.

The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is Singapore’s first ASEAN Heritage Park and has been labelled as a nature park since 1993. It is an ecological jewel and home (or temporary home) to many animals.

Migratory birds come from as far north as Russia and make it their home from September to March. Native animals such as mudskippers, crabs, mud worms, monitor lizards, birds or dragonflies can be seen year round. We heard that it is also the habitat of some estuarine (saltwater) crocodiles but were not lucky enough to spot one. Maybe next time!
