    Thanks bro for the info. So guys, shall we meet carpark 6?

And we will definately move slowly cause we will snap snap and snap. So reaching the mangrove or Chek Jawa could be a challenging goal. So if we took the van, we will buy time and spend the morning at mangrove or Chek Jawa to take more pictures. Alternative, if we want to save money, we can just take pics around the jetty and the spice garden (takes one half hour to complete). Head back to mainland, have our makan session and chit chat and share ideas and interests. Just my two cents arh....I think Aunty me is game enough to take the challenge of walking...the most i skive and wait for you guys to collect me on the way back to jetty
    I think it will be a good idea to decide where we want to go in Ubin, what we want to shoot and plan our route accordingly. Then we can decide what lens to bring.

    Dear All,

    0730 - 0800hrs - Breakfast / Kopi at the Changi Village food centre
    0830hrs - leave to Ubin by boat. (pls prepare some lose change to pay the boatman, if I not wrong its $2.50 per way)
    1130hrs - 1200hrs - Leave Ubin back to Singapore

    Taking what photos ?

    It can be scenic, kampung shooting or even Macro. Its really freestyle for everyone, and sorry I really not sure what to expect from there. I not been to ubin for years, maybe got shopping ctr

    Items to bring wear /bring along:

    - The bum boat will leave when there are 12 person. Each trip is $2.50 (to be paid to the uncle)

    How to get to Chek Jawa?

    At Ubin Jetty, you can hire a van to take you there. The vans usually charge $2/person for 12 persons, one-way. The van will drop you off at Punai Hut and you'll have to walk the rest of the way to the Chek Jawa Information Kiosk and entrance to the boardwalk.

    Thank you.

    Hi

    Just to share mine experience, I went Ubin on Wed 14th Dec. Love the rural feel of the place.
    I walked from the Jetty to Chek Jawa and the distance is quite exhausting therefore do beware, prep enough water but do not drink excessively, go toilet break before the hike (especially for the ladies) and sleep well the nite before.
    Have Fun
