    Default Coming to Singapore next week: need advice

    I have already visited these places:

    National Orchid Garden
    Zoo
    Jurong Bird Park
    Sungei Buloh
    Palau Ubin

    Need some recommendation for a half-day or full day trip with photographic opportunities related to nature and wild life. Does anyone recommend The Southern Ridges? Labrador Nature Reserve? Or Bukit Timha Reserve?

    All advice is welcome.

    Thanks!!!

    Labrador Park is gorgeous and yet quiet

    Ubin Island is also very nice too as well as St John's Island

    Sungei Buloh although you have visited the last time is SO ALIVE now with huge numbers of migratory birdlife spending winter here ...... well worth a visit again



    google them for more info

    FYI.....

    You should be here around the time when ChinaTown Light Up is already well on its way.... Suggest you tour ChinaTown and shoot a sea full of people (local/tourist) doing their Chinese New Year shopping..... Just don't bring too much gears as you would likely have limited space to breath as it is.....

    Thanks. I was in Sungei Buloh the past September. Some birds, but not many. And now I have my 100-400L which I did not have then. Do you think I'll see more birds now?

    If you like photographing flowers, you can visit Hort Park at Alexandra Road in the morning. There are a large variety of flowering plants there ... so 2 or 3 hours can pass very easily there

    After that you can walk along the trail to Mt Faber. Although there are lots of trees around, the weather can be hot. You may need a head gear and lots of water!

    There is also a Butterfly trail at the Alexandra Hospital (best time to go is in the morning) .. this is near the Hort Park area.

    The tree top walk should be good. Alternatively, as suggested by asterix54, you can go Handerson wave (Mt Faber to Hort park or the other way round) you will also pass by a tree top walk.

    Labrador park quite nice for sunset, while Changi beach for sunrise.
