Nature enthusiast Jonathan Tan offers ideas on how tourists can enjoy nature in Singapore.
BEST SPOT TO CATCH SUNRISE:
ST JOHN'S ISLAND
Visitors may stay overnight on the island dotted with casuarina trees. They can watch the sun rise against the backdrop of the city.
BEST SPOT FOR BIRDWATCHING:
SUNGEI BULOH WETLAND RESERVE
The reserve is recognised as a site of international importance for migratory birds, some from as far as Siberia, to escape winter. It is well-known among birdwatchers.
BEST SPOT FOR SEA BREEZE:
CHANGI POINT (NEAR CHANGI VILLAGE)
From there, visitors will be treated to a view of Pulau Ubin, Pulau Tekong and Johor, Malaysia. It is also a good spot for reflection, according to Mr Tan.
MOST FAMILY-FRIENDLY SPOT:
Home to a family of otters, the park has streams where children can catch small fish with a net.
