Lim Chu Kang Jetty: memories of an older, more beautiful Singapore.
Though renowned for its status as a concrete jungle, there are hideouts in Singapore that offer a more primitive experience. One such place is the Lim Chu Kang Jetty, it is one of the last few wooden, old-style jetties left in the country. The Lim Chu Kang Jetty is a docking place for the offshore fishing villages elevated above the water level on wooden stilts (known as ‘kelongs’) and aquafarms.
This is a great place to take the kids to explore nature, get engaged in fishing or to simply enjoy the scenery. From this jetty, one can explore the mangrove swamp running along the eastern coast of the jetty area, observe the fishermen carrying out their daily activities, or get a view of Malaysia while enjoying the sea breeze.
For those who are more adventurous, you can choose to trudge down the small winding path from the main road to an abandoned old house. The view outside the house during sunset is breathtaking.
