Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve – a lackluster experience

After reading some reviews on Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in Singapore, we decided to jump on the bandwagon, following the footsteps of all these wildlife enthusiasts.

We embarked on a 2-hour bus ride from Katong. Bus 966 from opposite Parkway Parade and connecting to 925 or 925C from Opposite Blk 402, or for better use of landmark, Marsiling bus stop where folks get a public bus to Johor.

925 loops within the area and takes you right to the doorstep of Sungei Buloh Wetland Centre only on Sundays.

The reserve isn’t very large for walking trails. We saw lots of foreign couples around the observation decks, some birds, a mudskipper, a komodo lizard and some really aggressive fishes.

Our experience might have been marred by the fact that we aren’t big fans of birdwatching or gazing across mud, mangroves and breathing in the lovely aroma of something which died around the swamps.

If you are a self-proclaimed wildlife enthusiast with an appetite for that, this might be your cup of [swampy] tea. For us, we enjoy some wilderness, the experience of wildlife in our midst but I think we aren’t at the level to appreciate mangroves and swamps.
