About Sungei BulohTucked away in the north-western part of the island, this ecological gem is a mangrove forest. Covering only 2.2 square kilometres, this is Singapore's first ASEAN Heritage Park and it is also a member of the East Asian Australasian Flyway Partnership.
|There are hides for birdwatching.|
In the mid-1980s, a group of avid birdwatchers discovered that this place was an important re-fueling point for migratory shorebirds from around September to March. These birds migrate from their breeding grounds in northern Asia to escape the harsh winter months. Some fly as far south as Australia and New Zealand, stopping by coastal wetlands along the way to feed and rest. Realising the importance of this place, our government decided to protect this site.

You can see local residents such as mudskippers, crabs, spiders, birds, monitor lizards, and if you are very lucky, you may see some otters, and even a crocodile or two!
|Have you seen crabs that climb trees?|
|Water monitor lizards are good swimmers.|
They have strong claws to climb trees too!
About the tour
Duration of the tour is about 2 hours. The paths are well-paved and there is no fear of getting your feet wet and muddy. Let us introduce you to the denizens of the mangrove forest; how the plants survive in such a harsh environment and how the animals adapt.
There is also a 3-hr seasonal migratory birds tour. Please drop me an email to discuss.
