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.

Inside a tropical swampy jungle in Singapore
These are views of natural swampy jungle in the island, a half an hour from the heart of the city state. Visitors could get a feel and preview of the larger Malaysian jungle up north.
In Sungei Buloh, visitors could feel, smell and trample inside the jungle in absolute safety short of waddling into the swamp where crocodiles are sighted quite regularly. Occasionally crocodiles could be sighted crossing the jungle path and adults should exercise extreme safety when letting the children run wild.
