"This is a delightful retreat..." Singapore Off The Beaten Path Tip by o00o

Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 431 reviews and 571 photos


This is a delightful retreat from the bustle of Singapore an island with a rural lifestyle that has changed Little in 30 years. Traditional fishing huts called kelongs are.built on stilts over the sea, while orchard trees, shrubs and flowers abound. Visitors can see a duck farm, a prawn farm, go camping and enjoy good hiking areas. There is a lake in a disused quarry and one of the favourite pastimes is to hire a bike and pedal around the island. There is plenty of wildlife, including the Purple Jungle Fowl, a wild bird from which all the world's domestic chickens are descended. A seafood restaurant offers delicious fresh seafood. Allow a half to a whole day to enjoy the island.<br
