We meet at Marina South Pier at 9.00 am and board our ferry heading south of Singapore to 2 of Singapore’s most interesting islands - Kusu Island and St John’s Island. These 2 islands are filled with legends, folklores and mysteries.
Each year, thousands of pilgrims visit the temples on Kusu Island and pay their respect to the Tua Peck Kong and Kuan Yin deities. There are also 3 keramats (Malay) to visit by climbing 153 steps. Your guide will share with you the various stories of this island.
We then proceed on to St John’s Island, which is an island with an interesting history. When Sir Stamford Raffles first sailed to Singapore, he anchored his ship Indiana off St John’s Island. St John’s Island was also used as a quarantine station for new migrants as well as a POW camp during WWII. Your guide would take you for a short walk sharing with you the rich history and mysteries of the island.
We then have a break where a picnic lunch will be provided for your enjoyment. After that, you will have some free time for swimming and beach activities. You can also walk and explore Lazarus Island which is connected to St John’s Island. At about 3.30 pm, we would head back to Singapore Marina South Pier for dismissal. The whole tour is expected to end by 5.00 pm.
