    I don't really recommend to take bus no 9 as it detours all over the place...

    For those northlanders, take 969 from Woodland/Yishun/Khatib to Tampiness... Then take bus 19 OR 29... But 19 is faster.

    Cheers!

    Ok lah....

    BTW...

    #1
    According to the NParks website, the bumboat ride operation hours is from sunrise to sunset lah, (sunrise is 0717 according to NEA). But the NPark website not sure updated or not also...

    Have you checked whether need to book the bumboats early? I don't remember their operating hours is that early... You may need to make special arrangement.

    #2
    If I remember correctly, there is a restriction for people to go down to the wetlands, and you have to register for it. With such a large group, I think it's abit hard that all can do down...

    Pulau Ubin Recreation Park, Singapore is very convenient to reach. You can take the MRT to the Tampines Station and then take SBS bus 29 to Changi Village Bus Interchange. After that you have to travel for about 10 minutes by boat from the Changi Point jetty at a nominal cost of SGD 2.50. The operating hours is from 6.00 am to 11.00 pm.

    boat operating hours = 6am till 11pm @ night lol so no worrys but they said chek jawa open @ 8.30am ??

    Yes... They build a gate at Chek Jawa restricting the entry... And that's for the gate opening hours...
