"Kusu Island" Singapore Off The Beaten Path Tip by A2002
Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 432 reviews and 573 photos
Kusu Island: Kusu means turtle. This is a very small island with an old temple (Tua Pekong) that acts as a turtle sanctuary. There are also 3 Malay Shrines at the top of Kusu's only hill (or rather a slope). Toaists (mainly Chinese) make an annual pilgrimage to the temple during the ninth lunar month. I enjoy having a picnic there too after the prayings and offerings to the 'Tua Pekong' and 'Datok Kong'. To get there, you can take a ferry from World Trade Center with several daily departures, more on sundays and public holidays. However, on the ninth lunar month, you will have to go to Clifford Pier for the ferry to get there. During that month, if you get there late, you gotta queue for hours and there will be one ferry approximately every half hour.
