Sungei Buloh: Nature & Architecture Photography
This weekend I visited the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve – a great place to photograph and enjoy with the whole family.
If you haven’t been to this reserve in a while, do go and explore the interesting Coastal Trail which starts at the new Visitor Centre (park at Kranji Carpark C) and leads you to the original Wetlands Centre. There are a number of fun and educational activities for kids, beautiful architectural features, and of course plenty of interesting critters to be on the lookout for. The area is wheelchair and stroller friendly with paths varying between cement, boardwalk and packed earth.
Photographers, take along your telephoto zoom (at least 200mm) for wildlife photography and a wide angle lens to capture the interesting architecture and landscapes.
For bird lovers, this is a particularly good time of year to visit as many birds stop off here on their migratory routes. If you’re going early-morning, start your walk at the Visitor Centre so you’ll have the light behind you for the best shots.
Opening Hours: 7am – 7pm Monday to Sunday
Walk Duration: We walked the whole area in 3 hours taking our time, which includes the Coastal Walk, Mangrove Boardwalk and Migratory Bird Trail.
What to bring: Mosquito spray, snacks & water, binoculars and, of course, camera. There are lovely hides along the Migratory Bird Trail where you can picnic or enjoy your flask of coffee whilst bird-watching.
Getting there: Nearest MRT is Kranji. From there take bus 925 and alight at Kranji Reservoir car park B (Mon to Sat).
If you’d like to visit the Reserve with a group of photographers, I’ll be leading a Photo Walk there on Mon 23 Oct 2017 8am. Come and join me for a fun morning out!
