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.

New Visitors Centre at Neo Tiew Crescent
On 6 Dec, the new extension to the east of the existing wetland was opened to the public. This new addition is about half the size of the original wetland and stretches to the Kranji World War 2 site where a battle was fought against the advancing Japanese invaders.
A new and bigger Visitors Centre has been erected right in the middle of the Wetland between the old and new extension to the east. The second picture is a rope bridge hanging over a water area.
PS: The pictures of the original wetland are posted following these few pictures of the new extension.
