Free Chek Jawa Boardwalk trip on 27-Nov-2010 (Saturday)

We are opening our registration book for visitors who wish to join us this month at our nature trip to Chek Jawa.

It is a boardwalk trip (sorry, not a shore trip), but there are plenty of animals and plants to spot. Do read about our past trips to get an idea of what to expect of a typical boardwalk trip to Chek Jawa. One of our visitors wrote in our guestbook, "The best kept secret of Singapore... Explore till you drop!! Real wildlife and ecosystem observation within secure limits".

Date: 27 November 2010, Saturday
Time: 9:30 am
Duration: 2 hours
Meeting Place: Chek Jawa Information Kiosk, Pulau Ubin
Cost: still free for now

Write to to register for the walk.

Please keep your group small, preferably fewer than 10 people, so that we can welcome as many family and friend groups as possible. If you are organising a corporate event, we encourage you to hire the professional nature guides.

How to get to Chek Jawa? 
1) Take the bumboat to the island of Pulau Ubin from Changi Village.

2) Once you arrive at Ubin, you can find a lot of island taxis (vans) near the jetty. Tell the taxi driver to take you to Chek Jawa.

Give yourself 45-60 minutes to travel from Changi Village to Chek Jawa at a leisurely pace.

How many people can I sign up for?
We welcome small family and friend groups of around 6 people or fewer. For large groups, organisations and corporations, we suggest you pool your resources and hire professional guides. Write to us and we will tell you who they are.
