|Lunch||13:00||Bus leaves for lunch at Bollywood Veggies|
|Excursion||15:00||Bus leaves for Sungei Buloh (excursion)|
Bollywood Veggies: Bollywood Veggies is a sanctuary away from the bustle of the “Little Red Dot”. Set in the rustic environment of the northwest
Kranji Countryside, visiting it is a step back to Singapore’s lush history. Our location provides a great opportunity to see a fresh side of the island, rejuvenate your senses and enjoy the simple pleasures of real food.
Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve: the wetlands of Sungei Buloh are a dream come true for keen nature lovers. At this sprawling 87-hectare ecological site, you can catch migratory birds escaping the cold on their way to the warmer climes of Australia – with some having come as far away as Siberia. Elsewhere, crabs, mudskippers and mud lobsters can be found in their natural habitats, and viewed from a distance at observation posts that dot the park. The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is a world-class eco-tourism experience first discovered in 1986 by a group of birdwatchers from the Malayan Nature Society. Three years later, the site was designated as a nature park by the Government in 1989, and officially opened in 1993.
Online registration will be open until January 1st 2018: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gwc-2018-the-9th-global-wordnet-conference-tickets-39184366495.
