Summary
Where would a more convenient and safe place be to experience nature in the tropics than in Singapore. Being an island-city, there are many nature-related places to visit within short distances.
See the animals by day at the long-acclaimed open-concept Zoo and by night at the award-winning Night Safari. For avian-lovers, the Jurong Bird Park has one of the world's largest collection of both tropical and migratory birds. Not forgetting our botany-fans, Singapore Botanical Gardens has a wide collection of tropical vegetation and orchids.
Considering the size of Singapore, it is not short on nature reserves either. Take a hike through Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, where Singapore's oldest primary rainforest can be found. If you have not seen mangrove swamps, pay Chek Jawa on Pulau Ubin or Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve a visit. Chek Jawa is also unique as it contains several ecosystems in one small area.
Some of the wildlife that you will get to see include long-tailed macaques (monkeys) and squirrels at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. At the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, you'll get to see migratory birds, monitor lizards, mudskippers, otters and plenty of mangrove shells and crabs. You may even get to spot a crocodile or two! Chek Jawa is an inter-tidal flat teeming with marine wildlife: fiddler crabs, carpet anemones, sponges, octopuses, fan worms, etc.
Finally, remember, take only photographs with you and leave nothing behind. Please help protect the little that we have.
