  Inter-tidal walk at semakau
by bpacker

Honestly, the best thing about going to Pulau Semakau is to check out what nature has to offer. Going for an inter-tidal walk ( walking along the shore when the tide is low) with a guide would be good idea as you'll appreciate what you see with understanding. And please remember, bring only the memories and photographs home. For pete's sake, don't bring a bucket to collect mussels for dinner, it's not only illegal but detrimental to nature*. Check out the website below for the schedule of the walks.

*I'm not joking, I actually spotted an old woman clutching a red bucket, harvesting shell fish "gong gong" at Pulau Ubin. What she didn't know was that this action is ILLEGAL in a nature reserve. Plus, Singapore waters ain't exactly clean so after eating the shellfish, you might end up ***ting your insides and puking your brains out.
