Wetlands & War Cemetery

As promised, here is the second instalment of yesterdays adventures.

The shuttle bus stops at various locations in the Kranji area and the other spot we chose to visit was Sugei Buloh Wetland Reserve.  We took the 500m Mangrove Boardwalk.

We saw Plantain squirrels

027Mangroves

029Giant mudskipper

038Malayan water monitors

061The wetlands are a haven for migratory birds at th right time of the year and there are great facilities for serious birdwatching.

Despite the warning signs we did not meet any monkeys or estuarine crocodiles.

Our final destination for the day was a short walk from Kranji station.

066The War Cemetery and War Memorial are only a couple of miles from where the Japanese launched their invasion of Singapore in 1942.  We took time to reflect and remember those who lost their lives during the battles and subsequent occupation of Singapore during WWII.

070Tomorrow is our final day in Singapore and we are booked on a tour of Changi which I expect will be a rather harrowing experience.  However, there will be one more post before that which will cover our sightseeing from today.
