Balik Chek Jawa with a Journey to the East with cycling guides from the NUS Toddycats, volunteer guides of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum.

Pedal Ubin at the 2015 Ubin Open House

We will visit the Chek Jawa Open House by the Chek Jawa community and enjoy a guided tour of the Chek Jawa boardwalk. And check out the fun activities at House No. 1!

Along the way, we will cycle through the sensory trail, past old plantations, old kampongs, forest, quarries and mangroves, stop for a coconut or two and listen to the guides as they share with you stories of Ubin’s wildlife, past heritage and present conservation efforts.
