Chek Jawa Discovery

Description
Be transported back in time to 1960s Singapore as you embark on a trip to Pulau Ubin. Shaped like a boomerang, this 1,020-hectare island is home to Singapore’s last village or kampongs, as well as the Chek Jawa Wetlands, one of Singapore’s richest ecosystems.

Located on the easternmost tip of Pulau Ubin, Chek Jawa is an intertidal flat of about 1-square-kilometre. It is a coastal area that is covered by water at high tide, but exposed when the water recedes, revealing the various wildlife species living in the sand and mud. Within the area are six unique ecological habitats: coastal forest, mangrove, sandy beach, sandflats (lagoon), coral rubble and a tiny island known as Pulau Sekudu or Frog Island.

There will be also check points at interesting landmarks to introduce about the principles of Leave No Trace sharing how to make better decisions to enjoy outdoor responsibly.
