Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve


Several weeks ago, we visited Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve… again. It is a spot that I frequently recommend to friends and family who pass through town, as it is a jewel of an ecosystem where we have spotted exotic migratory birds like whimbrels and plovers and resident herons and sunbirds. On this visit, we managed to follow, from afar, an estuarine crocodile from sea to inland!

The 1-kilometer long Mangrove Boardwalk, which winds its way through the mangrove trees, is just perfect for The Toddler who can hike a little over a mile comfortably before asking to be carried. The photograph above was taken not far from Platform 2, on the banks of Sungei Bilabong Buloh near Pulau Buloh.
