    My last trip there (1-2 years ago) the popular coffee shop is still there. Changi Village would have plenty of choice.

    There are a few zi char restaurant there when I went late last year, so quite a bit of choice. They should still be around.

    Be careful when you ride bicycle, one of the slope is quite dangerous.

    Whole boat to move = $30, capacity = 12, so $2.50/pax at max capacity.

    The seafood tze char and coffeeshops are still there recently.

    In the last 5 years, they have changed Chek Jawa into a boardwalk. Old news, but you haven't been there for 8 years so you might wish to check that out. It's a distance from the bumboat jetty so you can walk, cycle or take their "taxi". Never used the last option though, dunno the price. Info on Chek Jawa boardwalk should be easily available, e.g. opening times, etc.

    I just went last month. The coffee shops and seafood tze char still there.

    And yes, do be careful when cycling. I opted to walk and in the span of 1 day, I saw 2 cyclists lost control of their bicycle going downslope and crashed. One lady was lucky enough to escape unhurt, the other one had a fractured arm. Emergency vehicle had to be dispatched to transport her out.

    Bring a pot to boil your own coffee. Plenty of water and woods in the island.

    Chew Jawa is prolly around 3km walk.

    I'd say, grab a macro lens and walk down, taking pics along the way
