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.

Main entrance to Sungei Buloh Wetland, Kranji Way
This is the larger main entrance to the Wetland from the main road, Kranji Way on the western side next of the Kranji Beach Battle site of WW2. Visitors can now enter the Wetland from here and commence trekking the trail through the new extension. The previous main entrance is at Neo Tiew Crescent, a right turn 50 metres further down the road and 300 metres further into Neo Tiew Crescent.
The Visitors Centre includes administrative offices and also a showroom on the flora and fauna in the park.
A super size mud skipper to cheer the kids near the entrance to the Wetland.
Children's playground with a pulling platform to juggle to and fro to fascinate the children. This is located on the right of the entrance before entering the Wetland.
