    Chek Jawa
    Located near the eastern tip of Pulau Ubin, you can either travel to Chek Jawa by trekking, cycling or van.
    • Trekking – Personally, I felt it’s a bit too far by trekking unless you really want to walk
    • Cycling – Be careful of the tracks, have to push the bicycle upslope at times
    • Van – 10mins transportation to the place but you’ll miss the fun enjoying the environment
    When you are near there, you’ll have to park the bicycle somewhere and walk inwards where you’ll see the Information Kiosk. Drinks available at the vending machine, can exchange for coins with the person-in-charge.

    When you are reaching there…
    We settled our dinner near the entrance and I’ll recommend the seafood soup and the pork ribs.
