Do not worry. Compact cam or a cam bigger than a truck really doesn't matter. You do not really need tripod to shoot there in the day. Hope you have fun and come back with lots of nice shots to share.

They strongly advise pple not to go without booking.

Just for some information, the best time to visit Chek Jawa is when the tide is below 0.4m (if i never remember wrongly). There is very few days in this month or the next that is favourable.

The route to Chek Jawa is not that far as what you guys had said. A rough guide from the map i'm holding now, it's approx 4-5km away from the jetty. Rental of bike is quite cheap, i got it at around $5 from noon to 6pm, and it's a full suspension bike.. Very comfortable for off-road riding. Riding on tar roads are a breeze. But it's slightly more challenging once u hit the off-road. Slopes are not really that steep, still managable. Only thing to take note is be careful when riding downslope as the traction between the tire and ground is not very good, so DO NOT ride too fast.

Anyway, the summer cottage you guys are talking about is it this?? :



IF it is, then very sorry to tell u that it's fenced up, because the structure is not very stable. And also, it's just approx 100m away from Chek Jawa. ;)

I might be able to join you guys, if i have nothing on 5th Sep. :)

Nah i'm not a pro. Not in photography, yet. And not in Pulau Ubin too. I believe there are people who know the island much much more than me. But i can take you guys to mingle around with some of the islanders.. and do some shoots outside of their house.. There is 1 very very nice house that i'd very much like to take you guys to. They have soo many beautiful flowers outside their house!

This is an example.

I've checked the tide for 5 Sep, from 0800 - 2000 does not go below 1m. The only weekends with tides ~0.4m and within sane daylight hours are in Nov & Dec.

I just got a piece of info from a friend, he said at one side of the fence there is an opening, to crawl/squeeze in.. Don't know how accurate is his info though.. ;) but we can always try.
