31st August - What our visitors have to say about Chek Jawa

Here's a selection of thoughts and comments left by the wonderful members of the public who joined us on our August tour of the Chek Jawa boardwalk:

Yes, it's certainly wonderful that this place has been granted a reprieve from development! Time and time again, people are surprised at how one can find so much natural beauty just a stone's throw away from urban Singapore. We hope that you'll be back soon, and see other things that we didn't get to see this time around!

Awesome August!

(Note: I was so preoccupied with guiding that I forgot to take any pictures until right at the end, so most of the photos in this post will have come from previous walks. Thanks to LK for remembering to take photos while she was guiding. Only those photographs that can be enlarged when you click on them were taken on today's walk.)

It's the last day of August, and we're back in action, showing members of the public the beauty and splendour of Chek Jawa.

Ever since we started doing monthly tours of the Chek Jawa boardwalk in February, we've noticed a rise in the number of visitors. Thanks to word of mouth, as well as recent mentions in the press, many of our visitors come specially for our guided walks, as compared to our first few walks, when our groups were made up of members of the public we had 'ambushed' at the Chek Jawa Information Kiosk.

Response has been so good, we don't even need to hang our banners to invite people to join us anymore!
