Tranquil and calm. A terrific respite from all the nearby action. Well worth visiting for a bit of zen time. Amazing green water. No bugs either.

I was able to photograph hundreds of birds at the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. I would recommend that you wear long pants and closed toed shoes as you will be walking in potentially muddy areas. Come early in the day, or near sunset for best birding.

Bird sanctuaries are, in general, swamp areas set aside for wildlife and that's what this one is, also. This one is totally undeveloped with a poorly maintained trail and it is tucked behind new hotel construction. We found the swamp, with the help of Navigator...More

The place is calm and nice to walk, but there are few birds and it is difficult to find the entrance.

Maybe we assumed wrong, but a lot of dirt and construction equipment, as if they tore up the sanctuary and were getting to build condos.
