This is a very easy place to find. When you get off the bum boat, the spotlessly clean toilets are straight ahead and the bike rental shops are a 1 minute walk to the left. Tip: visit Pulau Ubin on a weekday to avoid the...More

Chek Jawa offers the little ones a good science lesson to know about our eco system. You will definitely enjoy your time here but do take note of the tide timings.
