Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

I continue From Here 

Day-08... 06-May-2016

We headed to explore the western side of Singapore. However, there were a lot of parks, ridge walks and farms on this side. We decided to skip the Jurango bird park and couple of other southern ridges basically popular for walks. I dropped Preethi off at the Science centre and took off on yet another trek in the country. Sung Buloh wetlands is in the north western tip of Singapore.

I took the metro till Kranji and then boarded bus number 925 to get to the wetlands. At the wetlands there are several trails. I did the entire stretch - Coastal trail and the bird trail in about a 2 hours. I think it was about 9kms.

On this day, the reserve had attracted a few photographers who installed their gadgets in the best spot and awaited the migratory birds to show up. I did spot a few herons, orioles, kingfisher and lizards. 

The walk was refreshing with lots of greenery and sea of course. You could clearly hear and see the activities in the neighbouring Malaysian town.

There are a few farms close to the wetlands but there are no public transport to these places. The area also boasts to be the country side of Singapore. 

I headed back to the Science centre and waited for Preethi to finish her viewing. While, I waited, I began and completed yet another urban sketch. 

At a nearby McDonalds, I had a cheese burger without the patty. A hungry me found it to be very tasty. 

In the evening, we headed to the NUS museum. The museum has some neat collection of art works from the country. 

At night, we headed to Little India for dinner and walked into a Daiso - a Japanese store that sells everything for S$ 2. They have some interesting collection of things.
