Singapore's last piece of Eden: SUNGEI BULOH WETLAND RESERVE

No longer one of Singapore's best kept secrets, the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is a last piece of Eden left on our concrete-forested island. A favourite haunt of my family's, its biological diversity and serenity (never mind the hordes of students and tourists) makes it a frequently visited locale.

Its generally safe here, but
watch out for the occasional croc!
The ubiquitous Water Monitor Lizard
(Varanus salvator) is a generally shy creature
despite its dramatic appearance.

Frolicsome sea otters are a rare sighting.

Children's art adorn the ceilings
of the pavilions on stilits.

Can you spot the giant mudskipper?
