Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – a free day out! Part 1 of 3

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve was a gem of a find… I had no idea such a place existed in Singapore, in fact I though the whole island was covered in roads and buildings.

And, shock horror for Singapore, it was free!

I expected this to be a fairly tame visit as I couldn’t imagine that there would be much wildlife left in Singapore. Boy was I wrong….

The first clue that this might be interesting visit was the Monitor Lizard spotted in the pond near the entrance. Looks like they may have wildlife in Singapore after all….
