Lying at the southernmost tip of the Asia land mass, extended by the Malayan peninsula, is a little gem of a bird sanctuary. The Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve is tucked at the far western corner of the Singapore island and accessible within 30 mins from the buzzling city centre. This is a 130 hectares of oasis for migratory birds escaping the harsh winters as far north as the Asian tundra. Here is a tropical paradise of peace and tranquility.

Still a picture of tranquility
Another tranquil picture of a pond, now filled with water. I was treking my way back and the tower hide was the same one we first saw in the morning. Without knowing, I had spent more than 3 hours in the reserve, alone and walking.
